Description:

For many sports car enthusiasts, this MG TF represents the last of the original 2-seaters from England. Still sporting curvaceous fenders and a spunky four-cylinder engine, it''s a delightful combination of ancient technology and very usable performance. And thanks to a comprehensive restoration, this one is ready to have fun today! The color isn''t technically correct for a TF, but it does come from the British Isles, being borrowed from the 1993 Jaguar color pallet, a hue Jaguar calls British Racing Green. Whatever the name, it looks fantastic on the shapely little roadster and thanks to complete disassembly and a frame-off build, it covers every square inch of metal on the car, inside and out, the hallmark of quality work. The shine is something the dusty factory in 1954 couldn''t imagine and the bodywork is impressively straight and beautifully assembled with a lot more care. The TF received faired-in headlights in an attempt to give it a more modern look, creating a pleasing combination of old and new that truly works. The restorer is an experienced TF aficionado who remarks that this was by far the most solid TF he''s ever started with, and the wood frame and sheetmetal were in excellent order before the work started. All the chrome and stainless trim was either polished, or, if it was pitted or damaged, replaced or restored, including the delicate trim around the gas tank and the handsome grille up front. From day one, the thing the English have done best is interiors, and even the humble MG shows off the careful workmanship of craftsmen who were artists as much as laborers. The simple bucket seats are inviting and comfortable, yet hold you well enough for the sporting MG''s performance capabilities. The slender banjo-style steering wheel is quite upright and in your lap, which is how performance drivers preferred it back in the day, and the double-hump dashboard provides a sense of style in the simple cabin. The center-mounted Jaeger instruments surely made building left- and right-hand drive models easier, and their octagonal faces mimic the MG badge''s shape. The slender shifter for the 4-speed manual transmission clicks through the gears like a toggle switch and the pedals are well-placed for spirited driving. And while these cars were never designed to be completely weather-tight, the tan canvas roof and matching side curtains seal things up well enough that inclement weather won''t put a damper on the party. The engine is the famous 1250 cc inline-four that lived in MGs for years, and you''ll quickly find that it''s a mistake to judge it by its size. Less weight is the same as more power, and for sheer driving delight, few cars can match an MG being driven at 9/10ths. The engine is nicely detailed in MG maroon paint, twin side-draft carburetors, and new wiring throughout. While the body was off the frame, the brakes were fully rebuilt, the components were painted and detailed, and the rear end received new bearings and seals. There''s also a shiny polished stainless exhaust system offering a hearty MG bark and proper painted wires with knock-offs and rightly skinny 165R15 blackwall radials that handle great. This is surely one of the finest TFs available anywhere, and now''s the time to make a move because prices are on their way up for these wonderful little roadsters. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
