Based on the MG TD MKII, the TF was an interim model pending the arrival of the all new MGA. Fared-in headlights and a sloping radiator grille ensured more modern looks. Some 9,600 TFs were produced between 1953 and 1955 and are increasingly sought-after today. The vendor of this particular example - `UAS 122' - informs us it has been regularly serviced throughout his 14-year tenure and never let him down. Until recently, when other cars in his collection have taken precedence, it was used both around the Essex countryside and for rallies as far afield as North Wales. The car was evidently treated to an extensive restoration between 1977 and 1985 and is now considered by the seller to have `very good' bodywork and paintwork, `good' 1250cc XPAG engine and Black interior trim, `fair' gearbox (we gather the synchromesh is now weak on second gear) and he feels `is a car to be driven anywhere'.
