The famed British sports car, the MG was named after Morris Garages, where the British sports car was founded and first built in the 1920s by Cecil Kimber. The most famous model built by MG was the two passenger sports car known as the Midget.
Five variations of the MG Midget were built beginning in 1936 and ending in 1955. Those models included the TA, TB, TC, TD, and lastly the TF. By the early1950s, the bulk of the MGs manufactured were being built for export into the United States where they found eager buyers who wanted a two-seat sports car at a time when no American car companies were producing such a vehicle. It is believed by many that the success of the MG in America was the inspiration for the Chevrolet Corvette of 1953 and the Ford Thunderbird of 1955.
The TF models featured many improvements and changes from the previous models including headlights that were faired into the fenders, a sloping radiator grille with a separate radiator, and a new pressurized cooling system. The later TFs featured the desirable TD Mark II engines which had a displacement of 1,250 cc.
This late production MGTF roadster is really nice car that is ready to drive and enjoy. It appears to be an older and accurate ground up restoration that has aged well and still really looks great inside and out. The restoration remains in very good to excellent condition which is attributed not only to the quality of the restoration but also to the apparent well preserved condition of the car prior to its restoration. The body has excellent panel fit and the two-toned tan and brown paint presents well showing only minimal signs of wear. The matching tan interior and top are also extremely clean and attractive. The engine bay and chassis shows obvious signs of use but appear clean and well maintained. The engine retains its hose clamps, exterior hardware items, correct wiring harnesses, etc-all the signs of a proper and well thought out restoration. The chrome trim and accessory items are also very nice. The wood trimmed dashboard hosts a complete set of clear and extremely nice gauges and controls. The painted wire wheels are in excellent condition and the tires appear near new. This car is equipped with a matching tan top boot and a correct mallet and jack for removing the rear mounted spare tire.
This car needs nothing but a new owner who is ready to drive and enjoy one of the most popular sports cars ever made.
