The problem is that very few MG T`s were sold in the UK that they are rare. The taxes here made them very expensive, the Government needed cash coming in and cars did it. The bulk of post war MG`s went to the USA, Australia and NZ The rarity has put up the prices, TF`s go for £25000/£3500 and even higher. The Octagon club has a dismantled TF advertised at £13500.
