Its easy to understand why they built this handsome 1952 MG TD replica: it looks great! Originals were frequently neglected and abused, never mind their legendary finicky nature, so it was probably a smart idea to recreate the look in fiberglass and put reliable running gear underneath. Traditional British fun without the downside, what could be better?br / br / This bright red TD has the right look, from the flowing fenders to the cut-down doors to the rear-mounted spare tire, its going to fool a lot of people. Unlike a lot of replicas, this one nails the correct proportions and doesnt have that home-made look. Instead, the fiberglass body is very cleanly rendered, with paint thats been touched up over the years but could use a professional buff to really shine again. They nailed the details, with a nicely shaped grille, bucket headlights, and running lights atop the front fenders, and youll love the raked-back windshield. Simple bumpers, unique British-looking taillights, and the high-mounted license plate bracket all contribute to the old world vibe this car gives off, which is entirely the point. Its not perfect and its probably ready to be called an antique in its own right, but for the price, you probably cant get more 2-seat fun.br / br / The minimalist interior does a good impersonation of the original TD as well, starting with the seat. Its not quite buckets, and its not quite a bench, instead it splits the lower cushion and puts the parking brake in the middle, which is exactly how the guys at MG were doing it, too. The wooden dashboard is probably nicer than the MG piece, and it includes handsome Vintage gauges that seem suitably British, too. The fat wood-rimmed steering wheel and modern steering column might give it away, but it feels right when youre hustling down the road in this open two-seater. Carpets on the floor are a little faded and worn, but the door panels with their built-in map pockets get the look exactly right. There is no heater, but you didnt get one of those in your MG, either, so its perfectly in line with this cars target audience, although it does have an AM/FM/cassette radio. Nice! Overhead, you get a rudimentary folding convertible top thats in good order with a few older repairs, and quite honestly, it probably works about as well as the MGs original top, too: for emergency use only! br / br / Theres some speculation about the powerplant, but open up the trunk in back and youll find a 1600 cc Volkswagen Beetle flat-four. Purists may scoff, but its a neat fit and there are all kinds of hop-up parts, just as there were with the original MG. The engine is a great runner and has great enthusiasm, particularly with the featherweight body, and the custom exhaust system does its best to disguise the engines origins. Its pretty stock, which ensures bulletproof reliability, and all the original VW ancillary components, including the generator and fan unit, made the transition intact, so its easy to maintain. The 4-speed manual transmission still has that vague VW feeling, theres just no way around that, but the ratios are well-spaced and keep the engine at its best. The good news is that you get a VW suspension thats a bit more competent than the original MGs, as well as a set of fairly fat set of Firestone radials to give it a bit more grip. Its definitely fun to drive!br / br / Not a show car, not a car for fooling MG purists, but if you like the look and the open-air experience, and dont mind having a little extra horsepower and fewer headaches, then this MG TD replica might be a smart choice.
