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.

    Purchased by the deceased vendor in March 1962, this TF was restored at date unknown but is now in need of further renovation. It should be noted that the engine is seized and that the passenger seat is missing, and that the interior generally is in poor condition. The chassis appears solid and the tonneau cover and side screens are present. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, the car comes with an instruction manual, an old-style V5 registration document and its original old-style logbook listing the deceased as the third owner.
