15 Aug MG TD Classic Car Uses Spuddy’s Swift Wax
M.G. stands for itself – not Morris Garages, and the dots are there as a matter of design only. The letters for M.G. were chosen as a tribute to William Morris and his company, Morris Garages. Cecil Kimber, while working for Mr. Morris in the 1920’s, began building custom cars from Morris chassis. The cars needed a name since they were not a Morris offering, but rather a custom job. Mr. Kimber named them M.G. as a tribute to his employer. The cars were quite successful and eventually Cecil branched off and started building his own line of cars. He officially named this new entity “The M.G. Car Company”.
MG’s TC roadster sold well initially and proved American demand for an English sports car, but the car’s right-hand-drive configuration and 1930s specifications meant it was ripe for a redesign by 1950. In response, Syd Enever and Alec Hounslow took two weeks in 1949 to strip a four-seat Y-Type Tourer and shorten the chassis five inches. Just like that, the MG TD roadster was born Nearly 30,000 TDs have been produced, including about 1700 Mk II models, when the series ended in 1953 with all but 1656 exported, 23,488 of them to the US alone.
