1954 MG TF 1500 (built as 1250cc, but upgraded some years ago to a 1500 engine)
The MG TF was essentially a stop gap car to keep production going until the new MGA would be approved for production by the then MGA hierarchy which did not want a car that would compete with the Austin-Healey.
The TF launched in 1953 was a facelifted TD with a sloping grille and headlights in the wings. The external radiator cap was now a dummy as a pressurised system was fitted to better cope with hot climates.
In mid-1954 the engine capacity was increased by 17 per cent to 1466 cc and designated XPEG. The bore was increased to 72 mm (2. 8 in) and compression raised to 8. 3:1 giving 63 bhp (47 kW) at 5, 000 rpm and a 17 per cent increase in torque. The car was designated TF1500, and externally distinguished by a cream background enamel nameplate on both sides of the bonnet, placed just to the rear of the forward bonnet-release buttons. This particular car was built new as a 1250 but in later years upgraded with a 15oo engine, lately 1500 badges were fitted to match
Production ended at chassis number TF10100 on 4 April 1955 after 9, 602 TFs had been manufactured, including two prototypes and 3, 400 TF1500s.
This particular car has been in the Stratton Motor company family for a number of years and has been maintained to a good standard but has now reached a point where she is looking for her next guardian.
A beautiful little car and so reflective of an era when life was far more simple – £22,995
