Hey, Reid -

John Christy and Karl Ludvigsen's book, The Complete MG Guide, Model by Model (2nd Edition) states the following for the TF-1500: "MG TF-1500's started coming through in time to be 1954 Christmas gifts, and they were indeed the answer to many prayers - especially with a fresh $1995 price tag." (p. 35) Published by Tab Books, Inc., Blue Ridge Summit PA, 1980.

Mickey, I would have to dispute the $1995.00 price tag in your book for a TF. Here's a TD with a $2115.00 advertised price and to my knowledge, the TFs were a higher price, I think, but not sure, $2295.00 for a 54 seems to ring a bell

Actually, in my research I read that the TF was priced lower than the TD.

I have also found period books that state prices of $1540 and $2350 for a TF, but I'm not believing either. I'll go with $1995.

Thanks.

Mickey, Sorry my bad, but you might be right on the TF price. I have a request off to the TF register for conformation. I have found prices from 1995.00 to 2395.00 for a new 1500 ? PJ
