there’s a v-8 victor tf on ebay today from ny. anyone looking for a rocket!!!!?February 4, 2011 at 6:28 pm #243661Montie HendersonParticipant
I wondered if a v-8 would fit in one. Whew, tight fit.February 4, 2011 at 7:33 pm #243662Larry MurphyParticipant
Wow,This would be a rocket ror sure!!! I don’t remember this company.Wonder if they built it with the V=8 or if the conversion was done by an individual? The headers under the fenders are a dead give away that it ain’t your normal MG.I know that the TF is rarer than the TD ,but I just cannot get used to the headlights molded into the fenders. To me it’s a mix of designs that just don’t go together.February 5, 2011 at 11:07 am #243663Montie HendersonParticipant
Larry, I agree the TF’s never interest me either either. . Kinda like going from a ’57 Chevy to a ’58. I like them both but given the choice, I’ll take the “57. I have to wonder what kinda mileage that V-8 gets. MontieFebruary 6, 2011 at 12:33 pm #243664mikeParticipant
from what i’ve read, they were mgb chassis in tf clothing. maby a buick/rover aluminum v8 would be more civil. i often wonder why the original dash wasn’t reproduced in any kit car ive seen should not be difficult to do.February 6, 2011 at 1:31 pm #243665Paul MossbergKeymaster
The MG TF was a facelifted MG TD.
Mike is correct. The TF Victor was a TF replica using MGB running gear and a GM V8. Kind of a nice circle of life in automotive terms!
Been digging around for some info on the Victor.
This forum thread has some pics:
I found some spec sheets in Spanish. They look to be just the spec sheets for the engine. If you are interested:
That’s all I’ve found so far.

The headlights had to change ,Lucas stopped making the buckets for the head lights,, Morgan had to change there lights also and they have not changed the look of the 4/4 since 1954. DanFebruary 7, 2011 at 11:12 am #243667
