Today’s car is a 1955 MG TF-1500 Roadster done in MG Red, Autumn Red interior and Biscuit top. I saw this beauty yesterday afternoon. It was just delivered 2 hours earlier than my arrival. The proud owners are our friends Ed (better know to us as “Fast Eddie”) and his wife Gita. I found them both in the garage admiring their new pride and joy. By the time I send this out I bet Ed is on his way to the Automobile Club/DMV.
For those who do not know MG stands for Morris Garages. The original List price of a 1955 TF-1500 was $1,995.00. Engine power is a 1,466 cc (1.5 L) I4 producing 63 HP and transferring that power to the rear wheels through a 4 – speed manual transmission. Only 3400 1955s were produced. The 0 – 60 time was 15.3 seconds. Top Speed 85 MPH.
Great car!!! Congratulations to Ed and Gita. Thanks for riding along. Frank
UPDATE – Ed is back from the Auto Club and ready to go.
