If your wondering where the gas gauges is....release the fuel filler door andremove the long metal flat rod...it is marked with "Full...3/4...1/2...1/4. It holds 12 gallonsand should average 25-30mpg so simply write down the mileage and inspect the fuel rod everycouple of 100 miles.
The previous long time owner was the President of the MG Club. It was restoredto a very high level and to exacting standards...the quality shows notonly in it's appearance, but when you drive this fabulous sportscar from the late, great 1950's.
The MG TF was only produced for two years 1953-1954 as a stopgap between the MG TD and the MGA.
In order to stimulate sales in the US, a 1500cc power plant was introduced in 1954.Only 3,000 such cars were produced with 90% going to the US.
The MG TF is often considered the most desirable by collectors of the T-Series.This example is powered by a four-cylinder engine that displaces 1500cc(1466cc to be precise)and capable of producing nearly 65 horsepower.
Ithasa four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.When the MG TF was first introduced,it was powered by a XPAG 1250ccenginebut the demands for more power by the consumers brought about theadditional 250 cubic-centimeters. The consumers got what they wantedand the resulting vehicle was dubbed the MG TF 1500.
This 1955 MG TF 1500 Roadster has been treated to a frame-off restoration.
The car contains some desirable features such as side curtains, aTantop,Tan Tonneau,and a rear mountedwire wheelspare tire. Thespectacularwirewheels and wind wingsare also seldom seen features. To duplicate a restorationtoday to the concourse levelof this car will cost $100,000+ and take 2-3 years.(That is if you can locate the parts)
I could ramble on for hours about this particular car. I have driven it at 65-70mph onthe Florida Turnpike and it is a ball to drive. I asked my son to take it for a drive today (he's 33)and at first he said no thanks Dad. After a few minutes he changed his mind and came backwith a huge smile on his face and said...."Dad, this is one very cool car"
If your 25 or 30----50 or 60 or even in your 80's...whoever is the lucky winning bidderwill absolutely love the way this car looks and drives. I have been a car lover and car collectorsince the 1960's and am fortunate to have saved some amazing Ferrari's, Maserati's, Mercedesand Lamborghini's along with some pretty amazing American cars...but pound for pound,this is one heck of a car to drive on a beautiful South Florida Spring Day!
Kudos to the Morris Brothers.....Morris Garage....and the creation of the MG...you guysbuilt a wonderful sports car and a car that will always be loved and cherished.
