Many American servicemen who were stationed in Europe after World War II became enamored of the British built MG sports cars.
Records indicate that an American airman stationed in Germany ordered a 1949 MG TC. While anxiously awaiting his new car he was informed that 1949 production had ended. He was then offered a 1950 right hand drive MG TD that had initially been built for the British market.
That deal appealed to the American who then took the sports car with him to his various assignments around the world until he retired.
