The so-called MKII TD was a competition model introduced alongside the standard offering from late 1950 onwards. Its more highly-tuned engine with larger SU carburettors and 8.1:1 compression ratio resulted in an output of 57bhp at 5,500rpm. The upgrades also included twin fuel pumps, additional Andrex dampers all round and a higher axle ratio. Most of the 1710 produced were exported, including the lefthand drive sale car that started life in the USA. It was following its repatriation in 2009 that this apparently very original MG was resprayed and fitted with a host of new parts, including: tyres; hub seals; wiring loom; bumpers; mohair hood, side screens, carpets and door cards; and indicator control box. The brakes were overhauled too, and the vendor now considers the car to have 'very solid chassis and bodywork' and 'nice' two-pack Green paint, and informs us that the TD 'runs and drives very well'.
