Classic Cars for Sale on Car and Classic UK.



After much deliberation I have decided to offer for sale my fully restored 1954 MG TF. I have carried out successful concourse restorations before, the last being a prize winning Jaguar XK140 which I vowed would be my last one. However I came across this British supplied one owner barn find TF and could not resist one last challenge. In short the car was complete so it was carefully taken apart down to the bare chassis which was blasted, galvanised and then coated. From this point on the procedure has been to restore, replace, rebuild every part to original specification, including the colour of the trim and coachwork; that is red leather with Ivory paint and tan soft top. The main points are as follows Engine totally rebuilt and balanced, lightened flywheel. Lead free head Fast road cam Rebuilt radiator Distributor rebuilt and matched Carbs soda blasted and rebuilt and matched SS exhaust Original gearbox stripped and rebuilt Back axle stripped and rebuilt with higher ratio All new brakes obviously New chrome wires, hubs and tyres New steering rack New steering wheel to original pattern New cotton braided harness. The bodywork was very good with the exception of the central tub so a new fully skinned tub was used with all the wings, bonnet etc being original. The entire bodywork was blasted, prepared and painted in the exact Ivory colour which is a very deep cream. The paint finish underneath is of course the same as that above. The trim is all new from Moss in deep red as original. The canvas hood and side screens are the proper deep tan colour. All chromework has been replated or where impossible, replaced. The car is now in my dehumidified carcoon and apart from a few test miles has covered zero miles. It is ready to be shown with confidence. It drives beautifully and the exhaust note is pure heaven. With the flowed head, higher compression, fast road cam, matched carbs and distributor the engine is surprisingly powerful and being balanced with the lightened flywheel is silky smooth and responsive. My asking price is far less than the overall cost of restoration and is I feel very reasonable. I might consider a part exchange of an MGB GT 1800 or V8. I have added a link to an image file but if you contact me I am happy to provide additional pics. I have put some images up at the following link so just copy and paste to your browser and all should be revealed! DEPOSIT NOW TAKEN
