SUNDAY 19th JULY 2015


1985 NAYLOR TF1700

A 1985 Naylor TF1700, registration number B8 DGT, chassis number SA9TFS1M1FA019, engine number 17V647AAH101906, car number 40, dark red. For anyone who is an MG TF enthusiast the name Naylor will be a familiar name as they are one of the principle restorers and suppliers of spare parts for these models. During the 1980s Naylor Brothers decided to launch an uprated version of the MG TF under their own name. They used an inhouse designed and built chassis with Austin Rover running gear and engine, clothed in a traditionally constructed ash and aluminium body. These cars should not be confused with a home built kit car as the Naylor badged cars were fully type approved, registered in their own right and had the backing of the Austin Rover Group. Only 100 cars were produced before production ceased and the rights were sold to Hutson who made a further 61 examples. This particular Naylor car number 40 has only covered 7,000 miles from new, with two private owners plus the supplying Jersey dealer. Beautifully presented in dark red with a red piped biscuit leather interior with matching dark red carpets, this Naylor's further refinements include a full weather hood kit, comprising a hood, a hood bag, a full tonneau cover and side screens, a wood rim steering wheel, a luggage rack and chrome wire wheels, which finish off the period look. Offered for auction with a large history file containing the original Jersey logbook, original photographs of the car under construction at the factory, original owner's handbook, workshop manual, Naylor & Hutson TF1700 story, numerous receipts from both its time in Jersey and England and past MOTs. This fastidiously maintained example, is barely run in with only 7,000 miles on the clock, and offers the next custodian vintage MG styling with modern reliability. V5C, MOT to March 2016
