    Hello ... MG TF-1500 owner in Orlando

    Hi -

    New to the Forum. Looking forward to exchanging information and tips.

    1955 MG TF-1500. HDC46/7211 with original XPEG/977. Built 23-27 September 1954. Dispatched to USA 28 September 1954.

    I am the sixth owner of TF7211. It's probably always been a Florida car.

    Owner #1 unknown
    Owner #2 owned the car 1963-1967. Restored it, autocrossed it, showed it ("Best TF" at the first GOF-South) , and was very early member of Classic MG Club, founded 1963. Lives only a couple of miles from me.
    Owner #3 used car dealer. Owned it for short time. Purchased from #2 to provide funds for down payment on house.
    Owner #4 was college student. Owned short time. Was not kind to the car.
    Owner #5 owned the car for 43 years. Restored it. Loved it.
    Owner #6 (me) bought it Friday Dec 13, 2013 - bad omen! Fell in love with the car the first time that I saw it. Looked good; made needed and usual repairs; needed simple paint job; started disassembly in 2017; Oh-Oh found wood damage; still in process of total restoration.
