A one of a kind example I purchased for myself but, with another acquisition (a Jaguar), the TF is probably not destined to be retained.
GREAT HISTORY...........documented 30,000 mile in 1994 when sold by its ORIGINAL owner to the second owner. And now, 26 years later, 33,000 DOCUMENTED miles. Incredible
And looks the part.....virtually perfect body, excellent door fit, all of the current means of describing a car: 'laser straight bodywork' and 'mirror image paint,' repainted once in original black (and yes, 'black shows all flaws' and, in this car's case...there aren't any), ALL ORIGINAL interior, red with leather seats....cracked, even a few small flaws but, geez, these hides are 2/3 of a century old and are from English cows.
Also, original tools, original grease gun, as far as I know original tire pump, original owner's manual, original jack. All ideal to lay out on the grass as a show.
New tan canvas top and side curtains, original tonneau, new wire wheels, runs and drives like new....zero smoke, quiet gearbox, perfect oil pressure (50-60 psi when hot), sensational. A working original heater and all of the proper panels UNDER the dash (which are rarely seen), original wing lights, even the radiator fins are close to perfect.
Show quality chrome, trim, gauges, under fenders, excellent ride, steering, handling, on and on. In my humble opinion, worthy of a museum and an excellent car to take to shows. What with a mere 500 miles of use per year since 1954.
Now, TFs are wonderful collector's cars.....less than 10,000 built as the last of the 'T Series' MGs that started in the mid thirties with the TA. Hard to beat the classic aesthetics of the sweeping fender lines, the cut down doors, octagonal gauges, and even folding windshield. Lively high revving engine, precise light steering and shifting, excellent ride characteristics, TFs are just about the ideal classic....sufficiently old to be definitely 'classic' yet effortless to own and drive. And in so many ways, this particular example is more like one that is only a few years old.
Parts are readily available, generally not very expensive, simple to maintain, and great to grace anyone's garage. Just in, ready to drive anywhere, call for more details...........
