The MG TF represents the end of MG's classic T-Series. The TF roadster brought a more modern take to the TD that it replaced by being three inches lower, and sporting a sloping grill and faired-in headlights. The car's dashboard was redesigned, with central octagon gauges (good for right- or left-hand drive). Wire wheels were offered for the first time since the MG TC.
Like the MG TD, a 1,250-cc, engine was initially used to generate 54 hp. shortly after introduction, however, a more potent 1,466-cc engine was installed. These cars carried 1500 badges on the sides of the hoods to visually distinguish them from the 1250s.
Today, the TF is considered the most desirable of the three post-war T-Series models, and this is reflected in prices of the best cars.
The MG will be supplied with a Victorian roadworthy certificate. It has 4.5 months Victorian rego. The retro plates MGO -054 go with the vehicle. It is mechanically very good, the syncrose are excellent on the gears, paintwork unmarked, seats in great condition, hood and weather gear is good. This vehicle is in excellent condition even the badges on the front add character to this MG.
Estimate $ 40,000-60,000
