Front Cover – Barrie Jones’ TF1500

7 Nov

MG TF1500

Barrie needs no introduction to many of you, especially those with TD or TF models. He is the TD/TF Technical Specialist for the ‘T’ Register of the MG Car Club and is also Registrar for the TF model.

I expect that Barrie has lost count of the hundreds of owners of these cars who have contacted him for advice concerning a problem with their T-Type; advice always freely given and unless he happens to be away, always given in a timely fashion.

Barrie has owned his TF1500 since February 1966 and his car has covered over 250,000 miles during his period of ownership. Who better then to write a book about maintaining a TF in the 21st Century!

Barrie’s Notes, a 76 page soft-back book covering every aspect of TF maintenance has sold nearly 500 copies worldwide. We have been fortunate in acquiring another twenty copies, which are on sale in the T-Shop for £6 plus postage of £0.92 (UK), £2.39 (EU) and £3.96 (Rest of World).

Barrie’s latest book on T-Types is titled The Essential Buyer’s Guide (to MG TD, TF & TF1500). Aimed primarily at prospective buyers of these models it is nonetheless useful if you already own one of these cars. It is available through the T-Shop.

    Hello, I have just ordered “Barrie’s Notes” and like to know where I could get the wide wheels which are fitted to your car.
    Thank you and greetings from Germany.

      The wheels on Barrie’s TF1500 have been fitted with 5J reverse rims from a Jaguar. The centres are original. The tyres are 165R15.

    John, as you may recall I have the high honor of owning a TF rebuilt by the late Malcolm Hogg. An owner can never acquire too much knowledge about his MG, so I must have Barrie’s book to keep my TF on the road as a living memorial to a great friend, Malcolm. My sincere thanks to you for producing the TTT. It is invaluable.
