All that's missing are some driving gloves.
With so many replicars out there, it's refreshing to find an original example of a classic, and this bona fide 1952 MG TD Roadster shows why with a unique combination of vintage styling and visceral driving enjoyment. The fact that the MG TD is a popular replica – similar to cars like the Shelby Cobra and Porsche 356 – is a testament to how fun and rare this car was back in its day, and Skyway Classics has this beautiful, well-preserved example listed for under $25,000.
While the replica TDs use a rear-engine VW Beetle chassis, the legit TD has a front-engine, rear-drive layout for optimal driving dynamics. This car's 1.25-liter inline-four is believed to be the original engine as well as the four-speed manual transmission, and both help give the lightweight roadster its fun-to-drive attitude. Like many classic British roadsters, the MG TD – produced from 1950 through 1953 – proves that you don't need a lot of engine power to have fun as this four-cylinder is rated at 54 horsepower.
The styling of the MG TD is perhaps its biggest draw with a pre-war design with big fenders and a low stance. Although the soft top is in great shape, this two-seater is best enjoyed with the top down, and that's also the best way to show off this car's tan leather and wood trimmed interior. No matter where you look on this car, it's in incredible shape with a clean undercarriage, flawless paint and chrome and an inviting cabin.
