    I’ve seen this car locally a few times and now it’s on craigslist.  Fort Wayne, Indiana area.

    I agree. Nice car.I like the two tone look and the luggage rack. Good price to boot. He shouldn’t have much trouble selling it. May still be a little early in the season yet, but in a few more weeks it’ll be convertible season.

    1937 MG?
    I do like the idea of the coffee cup holder between the seats but it would not work in my TDR. Gluteus Maximus hangs over the seat so I would have to exit the vehicle to get a drink albeit it would never fall over

    Yes, I think I’ll be needing one as well.

    Not sure on the year either?  Didn’t they started producing the T-series in 36 as the TAs?

    The “T” series started in 1936. But the CraigList ad above is simply incorrect.

    Our replicas are modeled on the TD, which were produced from 1949 to 1953.

    Here’s the model year breakdown:

    • 1936 – 1939 MG TA Midget
    • 1939 – 1939 MG TB Midget (same body as TA, stronger engine)
    • 1945 – 1949 MG TC Midget (post war, pretty much dusted off the TB and started production again)
    • 1949 – 1953 MG TD Midget (new frame, new body, independent front suspsnsion, smaller/wider steel wheels, bumpers, and right hand drive!
    • 1953 – 1955 MG TF Midget (facelift, new grill, headlights faired into fenders, same drivetrain until the TF1500 in 1955)

    I thought it to be a type in the title of his ad but he repeats it in the description.  Either way, nice car.  I love the color scheme.  I think Zella needs a partner.  If I only had the space…

    Nice looking but after my bad experience with California Smog Laws and my 1929 Mercedes Gazelle (Titled as a 1999 Special Construction Vehicle) I’ll never buy a kit titled later than 1975 again…I had to junk the car after I couldn’t get her smogged again…Thank God I didn’t invest that much into her in the first place…

    Too bad about your vehicle being lost to inflexable smog laws.  My hope is that some of these “non-compliant” but interesting cars can be saved by converting them to electric power.

    OK, we might also have to include some oil smell and prerecorded zoom zoom.  We have the technology.
