Lot 107: MG TF 1500

"Fine Motor cars incl.The Jaguar Legend", Coys (16 July 2011)

its debut at the motor show in 1953; it had stylistic echoes of the earlier TD but was much more elegant. The changes were subtle yet effective, for example, the bonnet line was changed to become more forward sloping, as was the grille. The rear bootline of the car was at a steeper angle and the headlamps were grafted onto the wings making the car look sporty and sleek. Bucket seats were also fitted as supposed to the single bench seat of the TD. Upon introduction of the TF the price was altered to �780, an increase of �20, a lot of kudos for the money even for 1953.

In 1954 engine was enlarged to 1500cc, and with 63 bhp at 5500rpm the new engine gave the car considerably more performance than its predecessor. The TF 1500 was only produced for 18 months in which 9,600 were produced and is now looked back upon with great affection.

This pretty example is one of the desirable 1500cc models, and was purchased by the vendor's father in 1989. Used through the summer months only during this period this fine open tourer is described as being in good condition. Supplied with a current MoT certificate together with a V5 registration document, old MoT's, previous purchase invoice, bills and receipts as well as a workshop manual and operation manual.

Finished in red with contrasting cream trim, this remains a charming example of one of the easiest to-own and most rewarding models in MG's illustrious history.
