Often referred to as 'the last of the square riggers' the Rover TF gained this title due to its very strong resemblance to the pre-war Midgets. Originally launched at the 1953 Motor Show the TF was greeted with mixed reactions from enthusiasts and journalists alike. It was no secret that the TF was a stop gap measure due to a delay in putting the long awaited MGA into production. In mid-1954 the engine capacity was increased by 17 percent to 1466 cc and designated XPEG. The bore was increased to 72 mm (2.8 in) and compression raised to 8.3:1 giving 63 bhp (47 kW) at 5,000 rpm and a 17 per cent increase in torque. The car was now designated TF1500, production ended at chassis number TF10100 on 4 April 1955 after 9,602 TFs had been manufactured, including two prototypes and 3,400 TF1500s. The TF was superseded by the MGA.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this beautiful example of the rare 1955 MG TF Roadster. This roadster had a restoration done and the Black paint has held its fantastic finish along with the bumpers and chrome accessory pieces have a mirror like finish and the optional luggage rack and spare tire, as well as the newer black cloth top does not look to have any imperfections. The interior is in an eye grabbing red vinyl with black accents as well as the dash and correct working gauges and comes with windows that can be zipped on to the top. The 1500cc Inline-4 engine fires up and runs with no issues and the 4-speed manual transmission keeps this TF rolling through the years and gears. These MG's are definitely a blast from the past and with the suicide doors and great looks this is a car that be driven and enjoyed for many miles to come.
