This original UK RHD TF 1250 has a virtually complete ownership record, with green and buff logs books as well as modern V5C registration. There is a BMIHT Certificate and lots of old MOT's which log mileage as around 23,000 mls from restoration in 1990. The car drives really well with no known issues. It will be freshly MOT'd on sale (even though it's not required).
In 2012 the previous owner converted the car to 5 speed via a type 9 gearbox and Hi-Gear conversion kit. The car has a heater, natty mirrors and luggage rack plus battery cut out's etc. all good stuff. Aero screens are not fitted but are included along with the original steering wheel.
There are two large files of history with the car plus some useful spares. Today the car is smart and tidy but there are paint defects, plus the odd mis-matched touch up which we have allowed for in the asking price. Complete with full weather gear, tonneau cover and hood bag all in excellent condition. Our original plan was to repaint the car and sell at a much higher price. However the workshop is somewhat backed up so we are offering it "as is" for a limited period.
The MG TF was the last of the T series. Produced from late 1953 some 6,200 were built in 1,250cc form with the majority being sold to export markets, mainly to the USA. The cars featured a 1250cc XPAG engine with 4 speed manual gearbox. They could just about see 80 mph on a good day, but the chassis was more than capable of handling more.
Use and enjoy just as is, and maybe improve the paint when it suits.
