The last MG to really show the marques heritage, the TF was launched in October 1953. Designed in response to the decrease in sales of the TD, the TF served as the last of the T-series Midget cars before the MGA was launched in the fall of 1955. The TF featured the same frame and drivetrain as the TD, however a slight face-lift was applied to the design. The front fenders were reshaped to incorporate the headlights, taking away the T-series, pre-war appearance. MG also shortened and raked the front grill, which allowed the hood to sit lower and improve aerodynamics. On the inside, individual bucket seats were now standard which helped to give the driver and passenger a sportier feel. The proven XPAG engine was given the Mark II TD treatment with larger carburetors, an increased compression ratio and larger valves, which increased power output to 58hp. Beginning in 1954 a performance version of the TF was introduced, called the TF 1500. The new model shared the same timeless style as the original TF, while having been fitted with an enlarged 1.5 litre engine rated at 63hp. The TF 1500 is widely considered to be one of the most collectable of the T-series MG cars and only 3,400 were produced before the TF ended production in 1955.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer.

All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
