"Hi Jesmond and Gloria, I am writing to say thank you for all your help regarding the Jaguar that I bought from you. All the way through the process, you provided a highly professional service, showing total integrity and a personal touch which is hard to find. I would not hesitate to purchase from you again in the future and will recommend you to other prospective buyers. Best wishes with your business, and keep up the good work."Ian Tarpey, Gulf Harbour Auckland, New Zealand
The 1950 release of the MG TD Midget caused quite a stir.
Despite the car looking essentially the same as the TC it replaced, under the skin much was new. The car was five inches longer, and the body four inches wider than the immediate post-war TC which it replaced. Top speed was increased to 80mph from the 1,250cc overhead valve engine but it was the handling that saw the greatest improvements over the TC.
The MG TD featured independent front suspension with coil springs, together with rack and pinion steering and 15" disc wheels for the first time. Styling changes to the MG TD, which was created largely at the Abingdon factory rather than Morris's Cowley design office, over the MG TC include new bumpers front and back and new 15 inch pressed-steel wheels in place of the old 19 inch wire-wheels.
1950 saw MG release the MG TD Mk II. With a more highly tuned version of the XPAG engine producing 57bhp at 5500rpm, bigger carburetors and further improvements to the suspension, the MK II furthered the MG TD's sales success.
