MG TD TF 1500 - TF3349 for sale in Indiana USA
|I've come across a '54 TF (HDC46/3349) up for sale in north central Indiana that is interesting and noteworthy from an originality standpoint. As it's been idle for years, the owning family has decided to sell it to an enthusiast. If I was in the market and had space I'd buy this TF in a heartbeat (that's my "stamp of approval" and I have no personal interest in the transaction). But I'd rather keep my wife!|
Red/red wire wheel TF purchased in early 1956 by second owner and it's been in the family ever since. Cosmetic restoration (paint and interior) done about 25 years ago, and it's been off the road since the early 1990s. Red paint good except cracking behind lower door hinges. No evidence of wood rot/problems or rust that I detected. Red color a touch lighter than original, well done paint job.
Interior is close to perfect, chrome all looks really good, weather equipment looks new (though it's 25 year old canvas).
Engine turns over by hand crank; 68,330 miles on odometer. Possible that the engine has never been out of the car. Undercarriage dusty, typical (though light) dirt/grease and surface rust.
Wire wheels look good. fuel pump/line & wiper motor are missing, fuel tank probably needs interior cleaned and sealed.
This TF probably has too much good originality to restore - it should be preserved. It will need to be sorted out - typical of any old stored vehicle, and the details not "original" can be returned to original type without much work.

Price should be fair - to be worked out between buyer and seller. I have photos available.
