We are delighted to offer this stunning MG TF onto the market. We sold the car back in 2010 to a customer in Ascot who has been involved in many classic car events and shows. The MG has attended several MGCC and BEN events and has been thoroughly enjoyed and admired over the past four years. More recently, we sold the MG to one of our regular customers in the East Riding of Yorkshire who has detailed the car but not really used it. The MG has now come back to us in exchange for a larger saloon car.
Prior to 2010, 580 BMP had just owner for 39 years and upon purchase in 1971 was subject of a major body restoration. One year previous to this, the 1250 engine was stripped and rebuilt and various mechanical work was carried out. Having had regular use for many years, 580 BMP was once again subject of restoration work some twenty years later. During the 1990's the MG was treated to a re-trimmed upholstery, further bodywork and a top class re-paint. All the chrome work was renewed and later in 1996 a new set of chrome wire wheels were fitted. The MG was finished to a very high standard and the outstanding condition today is evidence of this.
From 1987 to 2010 the MG covered 12,000 miles and a few thousand miles have been covered since last changing hands in 2010. We do have MOT certificates to record the mileage over the past 27 years. Today the MG drives exceptionally well with superb, fun 1950's performance. The 1250 engine offers good power, acceleration and is a strong unit that holds excellent oil pressure. The four speed gearbox is a delight to use and is in excellent condition and the TF handles and brakes superbly. Recent mechanical expenditure included new SU carburetors, SU fuel pump, starter motor, water pump and hoses. The MG has also improved with electronic ignition and a refurbished wiper motor.
580 BMP presents beautifully with an excellent bodyshell and gleaming high quality red paintwork. The chrome work is still beautiful and the MG has a recently replaced hood, set of sidescreens and tonneau cover. The interior is incredibly smart with superb door cards, carpets, dashboard and leather seats. The last owner has fitted MGB seats for comfort and we also have the re-trimmed MG TF leather seats ready to fit if preferred. The engine bay is nicely presented with a good level of detail and the car offers an excellent opportunity. Top class MG TF's are in high demand and this stunning example will not disappoint.
