MG TF 1250 '55 1955

Allmän beskrivning : Belgian vehicle Very vintage good-looking leather seats Amazing paint job in Primrose yellow Finished meticulously inside with octagonal gauges One of the last TF’s built The MG T-Type is a series of five stylish sports cars that were manufactured from 1936 to 1955, uninterruptedly. The T-Type served as a precursor to the post-war classic British roadsters, particularly the MG A, and made an entry in the United States, where its sales boomed. In 1936, MG introduced a successor to the iconic, though rather spartan, P-Type, the TA. It was slightly larger and more modern compared to its predecessor. The TA was produced from 1936 to 1939 and was followed by the TB, of which only 379 units were built by 1940 due to the outbreak of World War II. During World War II, MG shifted gears and decided to diversify its production. Instead of sticking to automobile manufacturing, they ceased car production and began supplying weapons, producing aircraft components, and maintaining war tanks. They continued these activities until 1945 when peace returned and then MG resumed car production. The third in series was the MG TC, the first post-war MG to succeed the TB. The TC featured a higher compression ratio, easy engine tunability, slightly wider dimensions, and more interior space. Despite being exclusively right-hand drive, the TC sold exceptionally well in the United States. Production of the MG TC lasted until 1950, and it became MG’s best-selling car with just over 10,000 sold. Following the logical progression, the TC was succeeded by the TD and as tradition says, the TD was a charming roadster that brought numerous modernizations. The TD underwent so many technical and mechanical changes that it was easily distinguishable from its predecessors. Given its somewhat progressive mechanics, the TD became the best-selling T-Type car. An Mk II version was even introduced, offering more power and improved suspension. The MG TD was produced until 1953. The MG TF is the final model in the MG T-Type series and was built from 1953 onward. To conclude a nearly two-decade-long career, MG opted for an almost entirely new design, as the sales of the TD were starting to shrink and its pre-war design had become outdated, the TF had a more streamlined appearance, giving it a sportier look. The mechanics remained largely unchanged, but in 1954, a larger engine option was offered. However, this proved to be in vain, as the world was eager for the arrival of true British roadsters, which came in 1955, with the MG A. MG TF The MG TF was produced from 1953 to 1955 and represents the epitome of British roadsters at its finest. Mechanically it remained exactly the same as its predecessor, the TD, while the exterior design underwent significant changes, resulting in a sportier appearance. The car was initially equipped with a 1250 cc engine, just like the TD, and in 1954, a slightly more powerful 1466 cc engine was also available. Both models are coveted among aficionados. The MG TF embodies the essence of British motoring. As a precursor to the true British roadsters, it has charmed everyone that loves classic cars. Moreover, only around 10,000 units were produced, making it relatively rare.
