EXTERIOR
The condition of this stunning example entirely befits the amazing credentials of two owners and a mileage of just 7,369. The pristine factory original paint work in desirable Pearlescent British Racing Green, (Code HFF), is virtually as new with an amazing gold fleck enhanced no doubt by the Diamondbrite protection applied when new. All panels are pin straight and the door shuts are perfect and even the boot lid is flush, so often raised due to the incorrect fitting of the tonneau cover. Fastidious scrutineers will find nothing other than a minuscule mark to the front bumper and tiny blemish to the rear panel. All trim sections, glass, lights and badges are preserved and the factory fitted woven acrylic fabric hood with much improved factory glass rear screen is perfect. The remarkable underside is beautifully clean with PDI markings still visible, and the rear wheel arches even display the factory spot welds. Originality seekers will be further delighted to see factory stickers within each door aperture. This is a truly exceptional example of one of the final MG Rover built cars.

INTERIOR
The comfortable yet snug ‘Ash’ cockpit offers real sports car appeal with open top motoring enjoyment. The full black leather interior, (Code PUU), was standard fitment on the final MG Rover cars and even extends to the leather trimmed centre console lids. Having covered just 7,369 miles, the interior can only be described as new. The flawless dashboard houses fully functioning switchgear, original stereo, and the revised heater controls. The chunky leather trimmed steering wheel displays a matt finish with prominent veins found only on hyper-low mileage cars. A surprisingly large rear boot is pristine and the front compartment displays PDI dabs and all factory plates and stickers fully intact. MG museum quality in all respects.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The original four-cylinder 1796cc engine produces 136bhp at 6700rpm and 165Nm torque at 5000rpm enabling a top speed of 127mph and 0-60 in just 8.2 seconds. The mid-mounted engine and rear wheel drive configuration display all the correct sports car credentials to ensure optimum driving enjoyment! The short throw sports ratio five speed gearbox completes the package and actively encourages enthusiastic changes! To drive a super-low mileage and unmolested example is something many MG TF owners can now only imagine.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The rare factory fitted 15” Vee-spoke alloy wheels display the correct Silver Sparkle finish having never been refurbished and remain as new with original MG badged centre caps. The front and rear tyres of size 185/55 R15 and 205/50 R15 respectively are matching Continental Premium Contact, and the spare wheel with original Goodyear GT3 tyre is unused with tyre nobbles intact. The original jack and brace are stored in the leatherette bag. The braking system incorporates factory optional electronic anti-lock assistance and discs all round (ventilated front) to offer positive stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by main dealer SMC MG Rover of High Wycombe on the 14th September 2006, this is one of the very last examples built prior to the collapse of MG Rover on the 9th April 2005. Contained in the history file is a new car order form and subsequent sales invoice made out to the first owner, Mr Michael Harnden, confirming a price paid of £13,956.82 including £199 for Diamondbrite paint protection treatment. Mr Harnden, a retired British sports car enthusiast owned this example until May 2019 when KGF Classic Cars were delighted to purchase the car from him, the original owner. The car was sold to the second keeper and enthusiast, Mr Robert Richmond, and now KGF Classic Cars are delighted to welcome the car back.

The original handbook and service book are present in the plastic MG wallet and a further history folder contains invoices and every MOT since the first in 2009, proving not only the low mileage but also that the car was taken for MOT every year without fail despite the few miles being covered. A service, cambelt and water pump change was carried out in May 2019 with less than 250 miles covered since. Finally, there are two original keys with fobs and dealer keyrings. This pristine MG TF is without question one of the best preserved original examples in existence, and with just 7,369 miles is firmly in collector territory.

The 3.9 litre V8 is extremely flexible with large reserves of torque and 190bhp giving effortless midrange overtaking. 0-60mph is despatched in 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 135mph is quoted. The engine bay is spotlessly clean and factory original with all markings, plates and stickers present. The V8 burble through the twin exhaust pipe is intoxicating. The robust Land Rover built 77mm 5-speed gearbox changes with reassuring precision and a progressive light clutch action. Delightful.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Distinctive cast alloy 15x6J road wheels are unmarked and still retain the MG centre security caps. The Zender split rim bolts have no corrosion. Matching Pirelli P6000 205/65 R15 tyres have ample tread. Servo assisted ventilated front disc brakes with 4-piston callipers and rear drums do an impressive job of bringing the vehicle to a safe halt.

HISTORY FILE
The MG RV8 was always destined to become a classic with just 1983 units made reviving a golden history and celebrating thirty years after the birth of the legendary MGB. This pampered example spent six years with the only Japanese owner, Mr Akifumi Shimizu of Wakayama who purchased the car on the 21st September 1994. Upon the first sha-ken, (MOT), in 1997 the car had covered 4,448km and in December 1999 the car was purchased for export to the UK with 11,800km. At this point a brand new VDO in mph was installed and professionally fitted retaining the old unit for authenticity. Since arriving in the UK a further documented 7,785 miles have been covered with three former keepers and MG enthusiasts. A comprehensive collection of paperwork, old MOT certificates and point of sale material make fascinating reading. The previous keeper part exchanged this cherished vehicle with KGF Classic Cars in April 2014 whereupon the garage owners Father, Mr Fasulo, fell for the charm, immaculate condition and V8 burble and just had to have it! Now only available to make room for a classic Ferrari.

MGA 1500 Roadster

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

An original UK supplied MGA 1500 Roadster with exceptional provenance

EQUIPMENT
Safety glass windshield, tonneau cover, black hood, sidescreens with signalling flap, door stowage pockets, spring spoke steering wheel, speedometer, revolution indicator, oil pressure gauge, rheostat panel light switch, map reading light, dash controlled starter switch, foot operated dipping switch, Britax seatbelts. Dealer fit: Twin fuel pumps, 12v power socket, battery isolator switch, aluminium spark plug holder, electric radiator fan.

EXTERIOR
Very rarely is such a genuine home market MGA offered for sale and this Orient Red stunning car is exceptional in both condition and historical provenance. The deep gloss shine reveals the pampered existence with Concours D’Elegance awards noted from as early as 1959! Scrutineers will marvel at the wheel arches in body colour, original number plates and the black folding waterproof hood still with factory side screens adopting the signalling flap along the lower edge. The chrome radiator grille with vertical slats unique to the 1500 model and bumpers have a mirror finish thanks to be rechromed by Derby plating. The flowing aerodynamic lines are absolutely gorgeous and a genuine Vanden Plas aluminium hardtop, of which only 1450 units were made by the BMC subsidiary with the correct aluminium sidescreens, is available by separate negotiation.

INTERIOR
A beautifully appointed interior has all the qualities of a traditional sports tourer with bucket seats still finished in the factory real Red leather. The previous owner being immensely fastidious would carry premium leather feed in the car at all times to retain the natural look missing in off-the-shelf new items. Karvel carpets with correct binding and oddities like the central dashboard-mounted horn button will please purists but for convenience a hidden 12v power outlet has been fitted, a battery isolator and an auxiliary fusebox to protect unfused circuits. All Jaeger gauges, switches and warning lamps function and this example feels factory correct in every respect.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Lifting the bonnet will reveal a spotless engine bay and a level of detail unrivalled by most. The original 1500 British Motor Corporation B series Engine has been rebuilt by Bob West and the unleaded cylinder head by Peter Burgess so performs faultlessly. A documented and meticulous periodic servicing regime will assure perfection seeking buyers. A maximum speed of 95mph is quoted by the 68bhp power unit. A recognised 5-speed conversion has been carried out by Hi-Gear Engineering to allow comfortable cruising.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Correct factory standard steel disc-type wheels are pristine and shod in matching radial Firestone 165 R15 tyres with ample tread including the spare. The Lockhead fully compensated drum brakes to all four wheels have been completely overhauled including new copper and nickel pipes and perform faultlessly.

HISTORY FILE
Truly phenomenal and second to none. One of only 1,859 Home Market UK 1500 Roadsters produced this example has had a total of just five owners in 59 years and covered 77,229 miles. First registered on the 23rd April 1957 to Mr Francis Ware who sold the vehicle after one year to Kenneth George Roe, custodian for the next 23 years. As a well know figure in MG circles and having previously owned a TA and a TF he just had to have the new aerodynamic MGA and competed in various sprints and hill climbs. Although it was not primarily used as a concours car Mr Roe entered it various events all documented in the history file and noteworthy mentions are a second in class in the BARC Eastbourne Motor Rally Concours in 1959, ’Best Modern MG’ awards at the Brenwood Concours in the 1960’s and a pile of ‘First in Class’ awards at M.G.C.C Silverstone in the late 1960’s. There are a number of photos of the car in the late 50’s and early 60’s, one with the last ever Twin-Cam built and owned by Mike Ellman-Brown, a good friend of Mr Roe at the time. Letters between owners make fascinating reading and the current custodian of 18 years, Mr Parmenter, has chronically and fastidiously noted all works carried out in recognition of the unique provenance this vehicle processes and written helpful notes for the new owner. Also featured in the book by F.Wilson McComb in the History of the MG and Malcolm Green, the well-known MG historian and motoring journalist wrote an article about the car in the December 1999 MG Enthusiast magazine, all included. The car comes with a full set of manuals including the first edition operation manual and original hardback workshop manual in perfect condition. A very rare opportunity and special car.

The braking system incorporates electronic anti-lock assistance and discs all round (ventilated front) to offer positive stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by MG Rover Main Agent, Clarks Rover of Leicester on the 30th July 2003, this outstanding MG TF was pre-registered by them. At four weeks old the first private keeper, Miss Sarah Barlow, purchased the car having previously owned an early MGF. A Clarks Rover sales invoice confirms the purchase price of £14,583.25 less £6,500 part exchange for her 1997 MGF. After just seven months of ownership, Miss Barlow found her dream first home and persuaded her father, James Barlow, to purchase the car from her in order to have a deposit to put down! Mr Barlow owned the car until 2017 when it was purchased by KGF Classic Cars. Sold 12 months ago to our customer, Mr Roger Swift, KGF Classic Cars are delighted to have the opportunity to buy the car back after Mr Swift decided to buy a classic Jaguar. The history file contains the original leather MG wallet with service and handbook, and all MOT certificates. Two keys with MG fobs and key code tag complete the fantastic history file.

A pristine MG TF, wanting for nothing and ready for summer fun!
