Footnotes

  • A rushed development programme meant that there was little, mechanically at least, difference between the TF and the outgoing TD II, the 1,250cc, 57bhp, XPAG engine of which was retained. Essentially a restyled version of the latter, the TF retained its predecessor's body centre section but featured a changed front end with a shortened, sloping, radiator grille and headlamps faired into the wings, plus an improved interior with separately adjustable seats. A stop-gap model produced pending the arrival of the MGA, the traditionally styled TF nevertheless sold well, 9,600 units being produced between October 1953 and May 1955.
    Manufactured in June 1954, this well-presented example of MG's last traditionally styled sports car was delivered new to the USA equipped with the optional wire wheels. The current owner purchased the MG for use at his villa in Tenerife, but with the villa now sold the car is surplus to requirements. Restored by the previous owner in January 2010, it is described by the vendor as in generally good condition and is expected to be MoT'd, taxed and in possession of a Swansea V5C registration document by time of sale. Being left-hand drive, this iconic British sports car is ideal for use in Continental Europe and elsewhere.
