Vehicle History


Introduced in 1949, the TD was the follow on act from its predecessor the, thirties designed, TC, and heralded some much needed post-war refinements. Independent front suspension, rack and pinion steering, steel wheels, and the availability of left-hand drive, made the TD an appealing motorcar for the export market. When production of the TD finished in 1953 it's reported that all but around 1,650 of the 30,000 cars produced were exported, with 23,000 or so heading to the USA alone.
