“Wind in the hair motoring” with modern performance and reliability!
Following the classic lines of the now rarely seen T-Series MG’s of the late 40’s to 50’s, the TD2000 story dates back in 1984 when an Australian Jaguar Dealer, Ross Marshall had the opportunity to acquire the original TD tooling from the United States. After several years developing a replica based around the running gear from a very reliable Nissan Pintara, the first prototype was born but recession intervened and in 1987, the business was sold to Australian Classic Cars. The second generation TD2000 was shown at the 1988 Sydney Motor Show and production commenced in Ararat Victoria. About 100 TD2000’s were made in Australia before the company was bought out by a Malaysian company who transferred manufacturing to Malaysia. They have since been widely exported.
Australian Built TD2000’s were widely praised for their high build quality and properly developed chassis with former HDT engineers making the most out of the Nissan chassis and suspension set up. Combined with disc brakes in all four corners and a 2 Litre fuel injected Pintara engine mated to a 5 speed gearbox, these cars have plenty of get up and go compared to their vintage counterparts. The TD2000 has the old style charm, charisma and ‘wind in the hair’ driving experience with modern performance and driving ease.
This rare vehicle (number 56) is 1 of about 100 Australian built examples. This TD2000 is in good condition for it’s age with only 60573 on the odo. The TD also features the factory hood cover and side curtains with sliding glass windows.
The TD2000 exudes class with its classic lines and is a great opportunity to secure a rare appreciating, modern retro styled vehicle.
