1955 MG TF 1500 (HDA 46/8363) – An ongoing curiosity is the increasing appreciation of interim MG TF models that were unloved and under appreciated in their time. For decades, collectors viewed the TF as nothing more than the historical bridge to the more modern MGA that would soon follow and values traditionally followed others in the T-series range. Buyers now see it as the most usable of the square-rigged MGs and the TF 1500 has overtaken the TC in price. This unrestored example was honest and clean with the type of patina that accrues only after years of careful ownership. Sold at $34,100.
