The last MG to really show the marque's heritage was the TF which was launched in October 1953. Designed in response to the decrease in sales of the TD, the TF served as the last of the T-series Midget cars before the MGA was launched in the fall of 1955. The TF featured the same frame and drivetrain as the TD, however, a slight face-lift was applied to the design. The front fenders were reshaped to incorporate the headlights, taking away the T-series pre-war appearance. MG also shortened and raked the front grille, which allowed the hood to sit lower and improve aerodynamics. On the inside, individual bucket seats were now standard which helped to give the driver and passenger a sportier feel. The proven XPAG engine was given the TD Mark II treatment with larger carburetors, an increased compression ratio and larger valves which increased power output to 58hp. The TF’s increased performance combined with the classic MG style resonates today with both collectors and enthusiasts. Just over 9,600 had been built when production ceased in 1955, making the TF a cherished collectible to this day.
