The last of the MG-“T” type roadsters, the MGTF was superseded by the iconic MGA. Of the “T” type cars, the TF was the most highly evolved and, debatably, most attractive variant.

Retaining features from the previous TC and TD models, the TF included many new features and design changes. The headlamps were incorporated into the front fenders, a sloped grill with faux radiator cap and a new, pressurized cooling system. The rest of the car remained virtually unchanged, however that does not imply a sacrifice, as the “T” type had been introducing revolutionary features for many years previous. The clever rack and pinion steering system worked very well and the independent front suspension was reported by many test and road drivers as the most positive alteration to the “T” type.

Of 9,600 TF cars manufactured, a mere 3,400 units were upgraded as the TF1500 and can be identified by the badge on the exterior of the engine compartment just below the bonnet and rear of the fender arch. Production of these cars ended on 4 April, 1955, meaning the car you see here was one of the very last ever produced.

This car is another classic find. Sitting virtually untouched for many years, it is extremely original and the body and frame are in excellent condition. With great history, a father and son completed a cosmetic restoration several years ago. This car is very clean and attractive with an unused, brand new interior, side curtains and top in period correct colors.
