1954 MG T-Series1954 MGTFComplete professional restorationStunning Original Red over Tan leatherRunning stronger than new
This is a great opportunityto buy a beautifully restoredTF at a fraction of the cost to restore one yourself. This was a painstaking multi year restoration the covered every inch of this car. This car was completely disassembled and every inch of it was restored. I have extensive photos documenting the restoration. The frame was striped and triple coated in black as original. All new brake lines and fuel lines installed along with complete new brake system. The underside of the car looks as new as the body and interior. The engine is completely restored to be as it was new. Correct clamps, hoses and all newwiring.One can easily see from the photos the level of time and care that went into this car. It was started as a labor of love by its owner to restore for his wife. He spared no expense and made every effort to return the car to it's 1954 new condition. Every part and every mechanical system was rebuilt, restored, or replaced. Unfortunately his wife became very ill before he could ever give her the car.
The chrome is stunning, the paint in the original MG red is spot on. One of the few red cars today that came from the factory red. The interior appears new. All gauges (except the clock) work as they did new.The engine runs stronger than any TF I have ever driven. Even my mechanic was amazed at the power compared to most TFs. One would think it was a 1500 engine rather than the stock rebuilt 1250. It shifts like new and brakes very well and perfectlystraight. And of course it drips some oil after a long drive. They all do.
I realizethere are no photos of the top. It is new and fits perfectly. There is a set of front side curtains that are brand new but have never been installed. The owner knew he would never use them and did not install the included mounting brackets on the doors because he felt it looked better without them.
It also includes the Heritage Certificate in the photos verifying the originality of the car.
All that said this was not restored to be a show queen. It was always meant to be driven. It is a show quality restoration but has been driven approximately 200 mile since it's completion about two years ago. While the paint is excellent and looks awesome it is not the quality of a show only concourse winning finish. There are a few flaws in places that one would have to look close to find. Aside from that it would be very hard to find fault with this car.Please look over the photos closely. They are by far the better depiction of the condition of this car. Please ask questions or if you are lucky enough to live close set up a time to come see it in person. It is worth the trip. I have sold dozens of classic cars on E bayand 100% of them resulted in happy new owners who got good deals on beautifulcars. This one will be no exception. I have set the reserve very low and fully expect it to sell. Therefore please bid only if you are ready willing and able to complete the sale according to the terms of this sale.I require a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $1000 immediately after the sale ends via PayPal. No exceptions. If you are not comfortableor cannot do this please do not bid. The balance is due in cleared funds within 5 days after the end of the auction or prior to pick up. Whichever comes first.I may list it for sale locally so I reserve the right to end the sale and cancel all bids if it sells prior to the end of this auction.If you are new to eBay we welcome you. It's a great way to find deals on everything. However being new and buying a car on eBaycan be intimidating. Therefor I require anyone with less than a 10% 5 feedback rating to call prior to bidding. This way we will both understandwhat is expected and assure a smooth transaction. Actually everyoneshould call first but if your new I insist. It's that simple. Have fun and I won't let you bid too much!
