RARE RHD UK MARKET NUMBERS MATCHING MG TF 1500
I believe that only 3400 of the TF 1500 with the 1466cc XPEG engine were made. and that 3001 went to America.
This example has had five former owners. and has a good deal of history back to 1968. Its fourth owner kept a small note book detailing all works done to the car. There are also
newspaper articles. receipts old MOT's workshop manuals. instruction books etc.
The mileage seems correct and is now 107521. with supporting notes.
The first owner was a Mr. Harrison who bought the MG on the 4/2/1955. he lived in Bristol even though the car has a Middlesex registration.
Second owner 20/5/1964 Gloucestershire.
Third owner 4/10/1966 Dorset.
Fourth owner 7/12/1968 London.
Fifth Owner 23/01/1996 London.
The MG is a numbers matching car with its nice original registration. and I have a Heritage Certificate confirming numbers and wire wheels from new.
The car has recently come out of storage where it was resting since 1998 which is its last MOT date.
I have replaced all the brake hydraulics. and changed oils flushed petrol tank etc and she is now running and driving quite well.
The interior is nice and presentable with correct gauges and switches. The bodywork is generally sound. but will require attention below the drivers door
and door step - however the wood appears solid. Paintwork is old and marked but shiny - the pictures are rather flattering.
Quite a bit of money was spent on the car in 1996/7 including an engine rebuild £3k. carb rebuild. petrol pump. tyres. and other bits and bobs - I think the car may have been in storage for a while prior to 1996.
There are also a few spares to go with the car including a brand new quality hood which has never been fitted. It also comes with side screens and tonneau cover.
This is an excellent opportunity to own a rare TF 1500. that can be improved upon - and gently recommissioned whilst able to be used and enjoyed. or to be totally restored depending on your choice.
I expect interested parties to come and view the car.
