Lot 1961


1955 MG TF 1500
Reg. no. 816 UYG
Chassis no. HDA46/8009
Engine no. XPEG1807
In 1949, the improved MG TD offered independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, disc wheels and left-hand drive for New World markets, and in 1952, MG became the best-selling import in America. After the TD came the TF; the new model was given an evolutionary makeover, with an angled back radiator grille and more sweeping wings with the headlamps nestling into them. In mid-1954 a new enlarged XPEG 1500cc engine was fitted making 63hp and the model was now designated the TF 1500. This car, like so many TFs was sold new to the USA and then imported back to the UK in 2014 by MG specialist Bob West of Yorkshire. The engine has been professionally and completely rebuilt with the cylinder head adapted to run on unleaded fuel. The carburettors have been rebuilt and there is a new clutch kit, water pump, starter and battery. We are advised that the engine will require running in as it has only covered 200 miles since the rebuild. Our vendor tells us that the body is excellent and the majority of the paintwork is original; the interior is also original and there are even the factory crayon marks under the bonnet and on the bulkhead. It would be hard to find a much more original example that is ready to drive away. It is sold with a V5c.
