This car has had a ground up restoration completed by MG enthusiast Dave Saunders prior to purchase by me about three years ago. It has since covered 2000 miles. The car was originally a RHD export to Zambia, from where it was re-imported and given an age-related number plate.
The restoration used many new parts yet maintains much of the original car. It is painted in a stunning unmarked Monza blue with blue/grey upholstery and navy hood, tonneau and side screens.
The car has been upgraded with a solenoid starter motor, electronic ignition, Dynamator alternator combined with false regulator, bonnet supports, a drop down luggage rack, modern indicators and poppers where the hood attaches to the rear valance so that the hood can be lifted away for loading. The original parts have been retained and can be changed over very simply at any time.
The car was in concours condition when purchased and has been on a few road runs since, so is now well run in. It remains a superb car that needs no work and drives beautifully. This is one of the best TF 1250s you can buy.
Current mileage 1980 (odometer zeroed on restoration)
An MOT is not legally required, but can be arranged before purchase
There is full documentation of the restoration which will accompany the car.
Come and see the car – you will not be disappointed.
Offers around £32,000.

IMPORTANT - Please Read

  • It is sad to report that even in our little corner of the internet there are fraudsters and scammers operating. A T-Typer who recently posted a "Wanted" advert has received a response from someone who claimed to have "the parts" he was after, asking for payment via Western Union money transfer (a haven for scammers) and quoting a PO Box address. We can only echo the cautionary note given by Craigslist at the top of every classified ad: Beware any deal involving Western Union, Moneygram, wire transfer, cashier check, money order, shipping, escrow, or any promise of transaction protection/certification/guarantee.
  • When you receive a response to a Wanted advert on, apply common sense. Does the person sound like a T-Typer? Ask for photos of all of the parts, including close-ups on serial numbers or other distinguishing features. If the person refuses or makes excuses, do not continue with the deal. Likewise, if you are selling parts, then be absolutely sure that any payment has cleared completely before shipping anything. Where possible, deal locally, face-to-face, or failing that, use PayPal, which affords you a level of buyer protection.
  • The worldwide MG T-Type community is close-knit, and at we know personally many of the individuals that are part of it, so if you have any doubt at all about a transaction, contact us in the first instance before proceeding with any deal.
