For Fun and Investment
For sale is my fully restored 1954 MG TF painted in its original Ivory with a green leather interior.  
Selling as we are buying a boat for long term living aboard in the Med next year. (If you have a Nauticat 331 or 38 Pilot House we could part exchange & pay the difference).

The TF was restored 2 years ago and was fitted with new body tub from Hutsons using original patterns http://www. e-typecars. co. uk/mgt. html in the UK during the restoration.   All the wood and metal skins were new. absolutely no rust or wood rot. Since restoration the TF has not seen a single drop of rain.  
The engine was overhauled and I'm not sure what the original mileage was but the internal engine wear was minimal. It is still a standard bore size and the crank bearings are also still standard. A new Crane cam and followers was installed. Hardened exhaust valve seats were installed in the head along with bronze valve guides.  
The transmission was stripped and a new lay shaft and bearings were installed. all the gears sets were in perfect condition. even first gear! All the mechanical systems we gone through and the car is a real pleasure to drive. it will run at 55 mph all day without missing a beat. The radiator was re-cored with a larger flow rate core and a 70's  MGB 7 bladed plastic fan installed.  
All the instruments were sent to John Marks at Vintage Restorations in the UK and were restored to as new condition. even the clock works!   
The original leather interior was replaced along with the top and side curtains. With the Ivory body and Green interior. the black Stayfast top just look right.  
The TF still has the original MG asymmetric front and rear bumper that were  re chromed. Most of the chrome items  are the original MG pieces. no Chinese after market stuff on my TF. The 60 spoke wire wheels are Dunlop with brand new Michelin 165 SR 15 XZ radial tyres including new tubes and spoke protecting rubbers.
The electrical system is perfect. a new fabric covered wiring loom from British Wiring was installed and the original electromechanical voltage regulator guts were changed to an electronic regulator. The SU fuel pump is a new electronic version from SU. yes it still clicks away just like the mechanical version. Stainless steel exhaust   The runs straight. o wheel wobble. no vibrations through steering. stters and brakes in a straight line. just as you would from a first class car. Looks and drives like a new car.
Although cars of this age do not need an MOT. I will arrange to have a new MOT certificate for the new buyer.  I rate my MG TF between #1 & #2 on the Haggerty scale. just marginally below concours. If you feel inclined why not take it to a car show to pick up a rosette or two?
