*Traditional Sports Roadster
*Last Version of T-Series from MG
The Model –After World War II, a number Americans were bitten by the sports car bug. Either for an exhilarating weekend ride or to participate in the growing sport of road racing, the British car industry was answering the call. One of the more economical entries in this field were the peppy little T-series roadsters from MG. In its final incarnation, the TF, drivers found the chassis had been tuned to a finer degree, and body styling, while still featuring independent fenders and pseudo-running boards, was starting to look a bit more contemporary with other sporty type vehicles. These cars featured a number of options such as wheels, soft tops, extra lighting plus for passenger comfort heaters and dash mounted radios. Of course full instrumentation was included.
The Car – This MG TF is one of the earliest examples we have seen. It appears to have been given a cosmetic re-do a few years back as it shows a light patina of use. The body and fenders appear to be without any major issued while the simple interior looks quite tidy and the dash-mounted gauges are clean, clear and very readable. One upgrade was the addition of a Moto-Lita steering wheel, adding a bit more strength and grip for the driver, An understatement in elegance the dark burgundy finish is accented by black vinyl seats and a taut fitting black fabric top. The factory steel wheels are fitted with blackwalls which adds to the subtle overall appearance of this car. Since its restoration there is evidence of light usage as several minor scratches in the finish are visible, but the overall enjoyment of driving an open-air roadster like this MG-TF so exciting that one would never notice these slight blemishes. An excellent opportunity to experience sports car motoring to its fullest degree.
