1955 MG TF SPECIAL
These types of cars finished to a good standard are now commanding figures well in excess of £12. 00. !!! (Even on Ebay. ) But luckily for you I am looking for nowhere near this figure. which leaves mine as being an incredible bargain especially considering mine has had many thousands of pounds spent on her over the years making her look what she is today.
Although most of the parts on this wonderful looking MG TF replica/clone/recreation are in fact MG. she did not actually leave the factory in this guise. That said. she did in fact leave the factory as a 1955 MG.
She originally started life as a Magnette. which as you know are now carrying an ever increasing premium of their own. and then she was very slowly transformed into what you see today - a MG TF Special.
Many parts are in fact original MG TF - such as radiator grille (very expensive) front bumper. rear bumper. over-riders. wheels. etc.
Barring the fibreglass wings and doors nearly all of the remaining parts are either genuine MG or genuine Triumph (predominately MG). The front brakes were even uprated with genuine MG B discs and callipers.
As you can see from the pictures she is now very pleasing on the eye and drives and performs well.
This car is a wonderful alternative to spending £20. 00+ on an original to receive no more enjoyment than what you would receive with this little beauty.
She comes supplied with a full wet weather gear just in case you get caught out in our lovely British summer.
Overall she is a well put together bright little example. Not perfect but a good 7-10 (in my opinion).
Generally she is in good condition but there are some fading/imperfections to the paintwork and some age related stonechips but nothing that distracts from her overall beauty in my opinion.
The interior likewise is good without being perfect. just perhaps carrying on with that wonderful age related patina only achievable over a period of time.
Although previously driven to Spain under this same guise she has not been driven for a while now so expect some tinkering and fine fettling to be needed to get her back purring like a kitten ready for some grand touring again.
In conclusion this will make for a very cheap summer car for somebody. all ready for the upcoming sunny months.
If you have a genuine interest/offer. and you are prepared to back it up. then I`m sure it could be sorted between you. myself and eBay.
I hope I have covered most things but please feel free to ask as many questions as you like as one would expect this with a rare car like this.
Thank you for looking
Obviously due to long term storage of some of my cars I`m trading I suggest a good service/overhaul of all fluids. brakes. rubbers. clutch. running gear. engine and electrics would be advisable and in some cases needed.
Winning bidder to pay £500 non-refundable deposit via Paypal within 24 hrs of auction end!! Deposit `MUST` be paid PRIOR to collection!! This request is purely to deter the day-trippers. hagglers. re-negotiators and winning bidders who feel by their winning of the auction just puts them in the privileged position of having first refusal with the `option` to buy!!
Obviously a huge apology goes out to all you genuine eBayers who appreciate. understand and follow the correct ethics of the auction. but as like me I`m sure you`ve had similar frustrations and fully understand the need for my plea.
