Here is the reluctant sale of our much loved Monogram MG TF 160 in the very rare Moonshine colour.
With only a few TFs ever made in Moonshine, this original directors car has undergone a full renovation here at MGFnTFBITZ.
With a base of silver this car is very deceptive until the sun shines and then it pops a beautifully stunning rainbow, showing off its full glory
This rare Moonshine Monogram has had a no expense spared renovation / preservation to make it one of the very best MG Monograms available
with a genuine low 41,000 miles and being a mapped 160, it ticks so so many boxes.
Originally done as a keeper for us here at MGFnTFBITZ so when she had a full bare metal repaint using original MG paint,
the insides of the brand new front wings were also painted along with underneath of slam panel.
The windscreen was removed to do a proper job and new front bumper was fitted.
Spare door handles, mirrors and side vents were also painted…just in case.
All spends have been recorded and receipts for over £11.5k will be included as part of the history.
The pictures speak for themselves, you can eat your dinner off the underneath, it’s that clean and preserved.
Below is a brief but not exhaustive list of works done, a full list available on request.
Full bare metal repaint £2100 and we provided 4 litres of original paint retailing at £800 litre at the time,
1 litre of spare paint will be provided with the sale.
New front wings, new front bumper, new badges, new windscreen
Console, door cappings and steering wheel all painted Moonshine
New black mohair glass screened roof
As new very rare Ultralite alloy wheels (£1500 option when new) and Falken tyres (only covered 60 miles when purchased, they are mint) …
These can be changed for brand new 11 spokes as the Ultralite alloys are not to everyone’s taste
Matching Ultralite spare wheel and new tyre
Refurbished subframes with loads of new suspension bits and powder coated anti roll bars / braces, new front hubs,
new soft ride shocks with red springs
New 4 pot AP calipers on front, new rear calipers / carriers, new discs, pads, braided brake hoses
New stainless under car cooling pipes, powder coated under tray, new radiator, new expansion bottle, new cap.
New 4-2-1 manifold, new cat, new GT supersport stainless silencer … now this is loud, if this is too much
we can change for a more subtle Scorpion or Supersport stainless silencer on
Premium black oxford leather interior, Jakobi cubbyhole, Satur roll hoops / windbreak, new MG mats
Very quiet mapped 160 vvc engine, performance air filter, recently serviced. Belts / tensioner and water pump have recently been done
and head gasket sorted a few years back as a precaution but it didn’t need doing. There are no issues at all.
Under bonnet has all the powder coated radiator mounts, catch, horn brackets and stainless bolts / screws
This is our own personal car that has been built to last. Lack of use and needing more space means something has to give.
As mentioned we’re happy to switch wheels and put a set of brand new 11 spoke 16” on, which is how it came out of the factory
and we can put more of a sensible quieter but still sporty exhaust on to accommodate if these are not to your taste.
This is a rare car and needs to go to a good home …. all applicants will be vetted before you enter the very limited Moonshine club!
The price is not negotiable. This is a superb 160, a rare car, rare colour and is a fantastic investment which will only go up in value.
If you are familiar with our renovation work, you will know the quality of the work we produce and will know that you will be among
an elite few with a car of such superb quality
