THE MG TO OWN, NICELY FINISHED IN WHITE/BLACK COLORS, 1250CC MOTOR, FUN FUN!
The MG TF was the end of an era – the true the last of the full-fendered British sports cars. It's the classic design that made us fall in love with the roadsters from Europe, and this exceptionally restored example celebrates our driving passion.
Pristine Glacier White paint suits the stylish little roadster, especially with the way the contrasting black in the seals and new top really add upper-class distinction. Plus, the exemplary fit and finish of the cut-down doors, sweeping front fenders, and long hood all point to true craftsmen at work. The upright windshield, rear-mounted spare, and graceful bumpers retain the old-world look. And we all love the proper knock-off wire wheels with MG spinner cap. But the short run of TFs is also celebrated for the headlights fared into the front fenders and racked grille that added a bit of streamlined charm to the vintage personality.
Inside the motto should be, "No radio. No windows. No problem." These MGs are a great lesson in purist motoring. A grippy steering wheel, clear gauges, and a manual transmission - that's all you get because that's all you need. Your senses will go into overload as the wind whips through the interior and you help create the wonderful soundtrack from the motor. Being a minimalist does not mean lacking in style. This TF is especially nice as the black vinyl interior matches all the exterior detail work. So attention is guaranteed when you park this British invasion among the big Detroit metal at car shows.
The 1250 cc inline-four is the car's original motor, and proper care means it still is a smooth runner. More than just the pride of originality, classic overhead valve unit with twin SU carburetors really helps the roadster shine. The motor was built for you to go out and row through the gears of the four-speed transmission and get the most out of this powerplant. Just like the legs on a little dog, the MG's engine has a peppy attitude that's happiest when it's kicking just about as fast as it can. The light body weight and independent front suspension all contribute to this sporting attitude. But to get the most fun out of this roadster, it requires you. That's what makes these MGs so popular... you are connected with the machine. This car needs you to get to the destination, and so when you arrive, it feels like an accomplishment.
Documented with a large restoration photo file, this is a beautifully finished TF that's turnkey ready for fun this weekend. Call today!!!
