1954 MG TF 1250

This very useable MG TF was 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. The general performance was so good we felt car warranted some paintwork improvements after almost twenty years. We then prepared the car and had it re-painted one year ago before immediately selling it to one of our regular clients in Essex. Since selling the car twelve months ago, the car has covered several hundred miles, mainly throughout the summer. The MG has not given one problem and has now come back to us in order to make way for a new toy.

The car comes with a comprehensive history file, photo's displaying the extent of the work in late 2008 and a handbook. The car also comes with full weather gear and still has lovely panel work and the most superb engine making this one of the most enjoyable real users we've had.
