MG TF is the two-seater car with a well-knit top is roadster that started in a production in 1953 the MG Car Company. This model came on changing of model and MG TD and differed from her only by design elements, such as an oblique’s grate of radiator, more subzero line of hood and stylish framing of the front headlights located on the wings of car. The external grate of radiator became a decorative element now, because the system of air-blasting was improved and better worked in the conditions of hot climate.
As well as at previous models, wings were not integrated in a basket, and a hood was opened both-side.
The motor of TF is set after back seats, in a base, thus too transversal. Such decision is characteristic for truly sporting models; it is simpler to obtain ideal weight distribution. But from here less practicality of the English machine: wherein it is fixed to be to the motor is full size stepney, details of the brake system, and the volume of luggage rack is behind limited to the wall an engine hid after that. By the way will pay attention to «stretching’s» above an engine. The four cylinder motor of XPAG had this car under a hood by volume of a 1250 сс.
Also this car was equipped by a mechanical four step gear-box. In 1954 by the increase of diameter of cylinders, the volume of engine was megascopic to 1466 cc, and now his power made 63 cc at 5 500 turns in a minute. This engine got the name XPEG, and the car got an index 1500 and began to be named MG TF 1500.
Interior of auto is pseudo sporting and not very quality: here much cheap plastic and unnecessary sceneries. But pleasant little things are present like a conditioner with the mode of recycling, electric windows and electro mechanic of outward mirrors. The combined helm with plastic insertions «under aluminum» is quite good, but differs in low tormentors spokes. Leather arm-chairs with insertions from a red alcantara are luxurious. Seats are regulated on length and angle of slope of back, and steering column - on a height.
The comfortable landing the drivers of the most different build will be able in MG to pick up, although limitation on a height is about 185 cm. And in addition to the made of cloth cabriolet top there is a hard removable roof with the heated back glass.
At planning of undercarriage of TF designers remained faithful to the front pendant on double three-cornered levers, well showing oneself on a model-predecessor.
