For Sale: 1955 MG TF in Monterey, California

Vehicle Description

This 1955 MG TF 1500 is said to have been stored for four decades prior to 2009, and it was acquired by its current owner in 2021. Powered by a 1.5-liter inline-four paired with a four-speed manual gearbox, the car has been refinished in black over red leather. Features include a tan soft top and side curtains, a black tonneau cover, 15? wire wheels, a rear-mounted spare, drum brakes, chrome trim, a banjo-style steering wheel, and Jaeger instrumentation. This MG roadster is now offered on dealer consignment with a tool roll, a jack, an operation manual, and a clean California title.


The car is said to have been delivered new in black, and it was refinished under previous ownership. A tan soft top and color-coordinated side curtains are complemented by a black tonneau cover. Features include a chrome-finished grille and bumpers, fender-mounted mirrors, and an external fuel tank with aftermarket side trim.


Gray-finished 15? wire wheels are mounted with 165-380 Michelin X radial tires, and a spare is secured at the rear. The car utilizes four-wheel drum brakes, control-arm front suspension with coil springs, and a solid rear axle with leaf springs.


The car reportedly received red leather upholstery from the factory, and the red door panels and trim are contrasted by black carpeting. The doors feature map pockets, and storage pods are located on either side of the dash. Signs of age are noted in the leather, and other interior surfaces show imperfections.


A banjo-style steering wheel sits ahead of Jaeger instrumentation that includes a 105-mph speedometer with an inset clock, a 6,500-rpm tachometer, and a combination gauge. The five-digit odometer shows 15k miles, approximately 1,200 of which have been added by the current owner. True mileage is unknown.


The 1.5-liter inline-four is equipped with dual SU carburetors. The engine block is painted red, and the valve cover, carburetors, and thermostat housing are polished.


Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery below.


A worn tool roll will accompany the car along with an operation manual and a jack.
