I have my Dad's 55 TF and fully intended to drive it and enjoy it - but the old car gods have not been smiling on me. On my last 'take it out for a spin' drive she blew a freeze plug and is now sitting with her head removed and with me not able to dedicate the time needed to keep her running and happy. I need to find her a loving hand and a roaming heart to put her back together and get her on the road again. She is full of great memories and it will be very hard to let her go, but it is in her best interests. Photos can be seen here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/L1jmxtv7EvkiRhh82. I can be reached via this site and would be happy to discuss her condition and other details with seriously interested MG lovers.

Thanks! Lori

Looks like a great car. Just rough enough to enjoy without worry and good looking enough to be proud of.. Good luck with the sale..

Hello there, This could be my fifth TF 1500. How much are you looking for? Best wishes, IAN.

Ian,

That sounds exciting! I believe it is worth around $20k. You must love them too!

Hello again, As you can imagine, having already had four TD 1500's, I know these cars very well. Your $20,000 price is WAY too much for its current condition so I'm out. Best wishes, IAN.

You might get closer to your price if you put it together and made it a proven runner. Otherwise it is a ran when parked...

And with a blown freeze plug, who knows how hot the engine got?
