It is rare to find a Midget that has never been fully restored, we have a file of receipts dating back to 1966 for servicing and parts e.t.c., the most recent for front wheel cylinders from 2018. We also have a green log book from 1968. This example has the rare detachable side screens which are handy for adverse weather conditions as well as wind buffeting and it also has the original rare 15 inch steel hubcapped road wheels. The very original usable patinated condition makes this rare as most have been restored by now, the paintwork shows minor marks, flaws and has touched in areas which all add character. The interior is in very smart useable condition, the leather is original but the carpets have been replaced. The 1,250cc engine starts instantly and sounds lovely and quiet and performs superbly as do the brakes and the gearbox, no journey would worry the owner.
The TF Midget, the last of the MG T type series line was launched on 15th October 1953 and was a facelifted TD, fitted with the TD Mark II engine, headlights faired into the fenders, a sloping radiator grille concealing a separate radiator, and a new pressurised cooling system along with a simulated external radiator cap. The XPAG engine's compression ratio had been increased to 8.1:1 and extra-large valves with stronger valve springs and larger carburettors increased output to 57.5 bhp at 5,500 rpm. These TF’s have always been much more rare than the TD with only 6,200 being built compared to 29,664 TD’s.
