Matching numbers. One older repaint, newer black leather interior and weather equipment. Recent brake service, no damage or rust. Runs and drives well. This 1954 MG TF is a nice original car out of the estate of a well-known collector and hobbyist, and remains in solid, usable condition with excellent patina. There’s evidence that this was originally a red car, but it has obviously been traditional British Racing Green for a very long time. A recent detailing has brought out a soft gloss in the aging paint and it is presentable as-is, although it is not up to show standards. The body itself is extremely solid, with no rust, dents, or other damage, and the wood sub-structure is in excellent condition with no issues. The black leather interior has clearly been replaced, and is in excellent condition throughout. The side curtains appear to be original and in excellent condition, and a full tonneau for the passenger compartment is included with the car. The gauge faces are in good condition, although it appears that the tachometer and clock are not functioning. Actual mileage is unknown. The engine appears to be in original condition and has probably never been opened. It doesn’t leak, fires up quickly with just a little choke, and pulls the car around with gusto, thanks to the easy-shifting 4-speed manual transmission. Clutch action is light, and the brakes have been recently serviced, including a new master cylinder. The rest of the chassis is highly original with nothing more alarming than some surface scale and some road grime, with everything functioning as it should. It rides on stamped steel wheels and wears a set of 5.60-15 Dunlop Gold Seal tires. For affordable summer fun, it’s hard to beat a vintage MG. This one is presentable, usable, and ready for many years of happy motoring without significant additional investment, or it could be an easy rolling restoration that can be tackled without taking the car off the road. With a massive aftermarket and knowledgeable enthusiast network, these are inexpensive, reliable, easy-to-repair cars that are ideal for the hobbyist who likes to drive his hardware. This TF is a nice little car that can be enjoyed immediately and restored as time and funds allow. For more information and nearly 100 photos of this car, please visit
