This classic British Racing Green MGF in factory optional Pearlescent finish, (Code HFF), boasts a deep high metallic shine commensurate with the very low 18,450 miles covered along with strict garage storage. The paint finish is uniform and all factory panels are in superb order with no dings or distortion. Tiny markings are visible upon close scrutiny and worthy of mention is a paint blemish to the driver’s door, a touched in mark to the nearside rear wheel arch and front bumper, all barely noticeable. The woven acrylic fabric hood is as new and the plastic screen completely clear. The underside is protected with a professional application of Dinitrol treatment whilst avoiding an unnecessary heavy layer often applied by amateurs. All trim sections, glass, lights and badges are pristine and the supplying MG Rover dealer number plates are fitted. This example will satisfy anyone seeking an unmolested and well cared for low mileage MGF.
The Black Mirage cloth interior, (Code WEW), remains spotlessly clean and free from significant wear, with only a miniscule nick to the driver seat side panel. The rare satin black central fascia and aluminium door strakes are in excellent condition, as is the dashboard and door cards. The cut pile carpets are clean and damage free and the chunky small leather steering wheel boasts the unworn preserved state found only on low mileage examples. All functions and controls operate perfectly including the factory fitted MG coded radio cassette. Both front and rear luggage areas are surprisingly spacious and spotless with the front housing an unused spare wheel and jack and even shows all factory PDI paint dabs! This is a well-cared for example.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The four-cylinder 1796cc engine produces 120bhp at 5500rpm and 165Nm torque at 3000rpm enabling a top speed of 120mph and 0-60 in just 8.5 seconds. The mid-mounted engine and rear wheel drive configuration processes all the correct sports car credentials to ensure optimum driver delight. Regular servicing with a recent replacement cam-belt and water pump, fitment of a heavy-duty head gasket and stainless steel coolant pipes all fitted as a precaution are documented. There is an invoice for £405.25 from MGOC Spares Ltd for the supply only of a stainless steel exhaust system which sounds delightful. The short throw sports ratio five speed gearbox completes the package.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original and unrestored 15inch eight-spoke style alloy wheels with the MG logo are in wonderful condition with no kerb damage whatsoever and only to tiniest scratches visible. Matching branded Falken Ziex tyres of size 185/55 R15 front and 205/50 R15 rear were fitted in 2016 and have covered very few miles. Ventilated front discs and solid rear discs with factory optional electronic anti-lock braking offer positive straight-line stopping power.
Registered new by MG Rover Main Dealers, Geo Harrison, of Whitby on the 21st September 2001, this example was purchased by first owner Mrs Angela Glister. A new vehicle order form and subsequent sales invoice in the history file confirm the price new of £17,450.00 including factory options. An impressive vehicle service history leaves in no doubt that this warranted 18,450 mile example has been very well cared for. The original handbooks, guides and instruction pamphlets are contained in the black leather MG wallet and the service book contains 10 stamped entries, the most recent being specialists Rovertec in November 2018 at 17,443 miles. A large file of main dealer and specialist invoices correspond with the service entries and there are even letters between previous owners detailing the cars history. Every MOT certificate bar one is included. The previous keepers and MG Car Club members, Mr and Mrs Daniel, purchased the car in 2017 with the intention of touring Europe in retirement. Having seen our low mileage 75th Anniversary Edition, they both fell in love and had to have it, and KGF Classic Cars were delighted to take this example in exchange. The perfect cherished plate, MG51BRG has been on the car since new and will remain so. Both sets of keys with remote fobs and code tags are included.
An unspoiled and prized MGF, wanting for nothing and ready for summer entertainment!
