Description 1954 MG TF 1250, dry-stored great running vintage convertible British sports car

MG TF 1250, 1954

 

Genuine
survivor, last owner since early 1980s, sat in dry storage for past 20+ years

 

Recently
brought back to life, fully serviced (fluids changed, lubed, valves adjusted,
carbs cleaned and balanced, new battery, fuel tank and lines cleaned, brakes redone, new radials, all
lights checked, wiper motor cleaned and lubed), and ready for daily use.  
Mileage indicated is 23,900 and possibly original.

 

Body
is really excellent….straight, good fit, went over the edges and door bottoms
with a magnet looking for plastic filler…and found none.  I was told it was repainted (once) many years
ago and the paint is still more than presentable for general use and low key
shows.    Same with interior, good
panels, carpets, seats, seals, gaskets, etc.

 

Runs
exceptionally well……135-140 psi compression in every cylinder, 50 psi oil
pressure when warm, no smoke, quiet valves, no obvious oil leaks, revs quickly
and smoothly.  Same with the
transmission….does not pop out of gear, good synchromesh, quiet operation.

 

Brakes
were just done, new radials fitted, front end is tight, steering does not bind
in corners, exhaust is mellow, charging circuit works properly, wiper motor
just cleaned and adjusted, all original gauges work, and tracks straight.

 

Top
and side curtains appear to be new, I just had a new tonneau installed, new
seat belts, chrome is all very good to excellent, VERY clean underneath (and
paint matches the exterior), overall, a beautiful well kept original car.  The kind that is so hard to find now, 62
years after this car was built.

 

And,
of course, it has the best single factory option…wire wheels.  When added to the folding windshield, sweeping
fenders, running boards….gives this MG TF a wonderful classic look.

  

Have
driven the car a fair amount, has never let me down, starts instantly, runs
perfectly, zips along as well as the best TFs (that is, 60-70 mph on the
highway is fine but most fun ‘round winding country roads).   And, I would hope, the photos tell the
rest.   Body mounts are not rusty, wood
framing looks good as do the wood floors, engine bay is very clean, runs cool
on a hot day, what else is there?

 

I
have tried my best to represent this car as accurately as I can.  Even to the point of being able to quote such
VERY important items as compression and oil pressure.  Look as I have, can’t really find anything
significantly wrong with this car.   In
my eye, a TF with wire wheels is as beautiful a post war English as exists, and
IF you agree…..here is your dream car. 
Ready to drive most anywhere.
