For Sale: 1955 MG TF in St. Louis, Missouri

$36,900

Vehicle Description

Very nice older restoration to a very original, low mileage example!  All numbers matching and complete with wet weather gear and full tonneau cover!  Recently fitted with brand new polished, stainless steel exhaust system and brand new US Royal tires!  Superb runner and excellent driver quality candidate!  Introduced in 1953 as the final variant in the T-Series, the TF Midget was essentially a modernized TD with fender-integrated headlights and a new waterfalling grille hiding an improved radiator. The car came standard with the Mark II XPAG motor displacing 1250cc and fed through dual SU carburetors. Compression was 8.1:1 and horsepower was up to 57.5! Production including the two prototypes reached 9,602 before the TF was retired in early April of 1955. We are excited to offer this 1955 MG TF Roadster! The car has been fully restored and finished in a beautiful shade of Almond Green over Tan interior with tan canvas soft top and tonneau cover.  The car is powered by its original numbers matching XPAG 1250cc Inline 4 and twin SU carburetors and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission.  Notable features and options on this TF include folding windscreen, rear-mount spare with cover, turn signals, electric wipers, wind wings, original banjo steering wheel, dash-mounted rearview mirror, tinted visor, locking glove box covers, stainless steel exhaust, front & rear bumperettes, MG door sills, brand new side curtains, and original octagonal Jaeger instrumentation throughout!  The car rides on painted steel wheels wrapped in brand new US Royal 5.50-15 black wall tires with chrome center caps! The former New England area owner oversaw the completion of a full frame-off restoration that was done to a show worthy level approximately 25 years ago. Finished at that time in period lacquer paint, fitted with re-chromed bright work, along with fresh upholstery & trim were all included.  As with such time passing and the car’s limited road use on Pennsylvania highways, you will note some wear and patina today.  Similarly, the original running gear was also rebuilt at that time and continues to start, run, stop and drive like new!  Showing only 57,640 miles on the odometer, we feel this was likely an original mileage candidate prior to the restoration, but do not have supporting mileage documentation.  Underneath is where it becomes very clear that the previous owner was an avid MG enthusiast with a knack for detail.  Almost every component from the wood structuring to brake & fuel lines to suspension & steering components were replaced for new and remain is very good condition.  Just recently, a fully polished stainless steel exhaust system was fitted. A true investment-grade TF, this car presents a unique opportunity to own what many consider to be Morris Garage’s finest T-Series car.  We are confident both in the car’s mechanical and cosmetic accolades and no show or twisting backroad should be contemplated.  We would invite anyone interested in owning one of the finest TFs on the planet to give us a ring with additional questions.  Thanks for looking!
