In 1945 the war ended and MG, along with many other automobile manufacturers, were now in a race to reignite production and sell their leftover pre-war inventory. With expense conservation as a priority, the MG Car Company dusted off their old TB blueprints, widened the body, installed shackles replacing sliding trunnions for spring mounts, changed the gauge cluster format, and slightly increased engine compression.
