This stunning MG TF has covered in the region of 1000 miles in the past 18 months. We know the car well having sold it to the previous owner. DSV 498 was first registered on the 9th December 1954 and supplied new in Nairobi, Kenya. From the history, we can see the car changed hands in Kenya twice in the 1960's and was then sold again in 1974 to another resident of Nairobi. In 1980, having owned the car six years, the owner moved to the U.K and officially exported the car from Kenya. On arrival in the UK, the 1250 TF was restored and registered in the UK by 1984. From the paperwork we can see the car arrived in the U.K in August 1980 and was subject to customs restrictions until August 1982. The V5 states the car was UK registered by 1984 and the car remained with its long term owner until 1998. The MG stayed with its next owner in Reigate for ten years before selling to us. The car initially arrived in very good condition with a superb engine and gearbox. On test drive, it was evident that the car had been set up particularly well and the engine itself was fantastic with lots of power and a superb sound. Over twenty years on since restoration, in late 2008 the MG TF was fully stripped down and re-painted and photographs of the work are with the comrpehensive history. As a result, the paint finish is stunning and the rust free body is still in excellent order.
This delightful TF comes with a detailed history file containing information and previous logbooks from Nairobi, restoration history, handbook and full weather equipment including sidescreens and tonneau cover.
