This website is an impressive creation so congratulations to all involved.

In recent years I have restored a 1954 ZA, a 1979 B and have just bought a 1949 YA - Y 4086 to be precise - in pieces, so I have a project ahead of me for several years I think.

Interesting site.  My Y last ran in 1974. I keep it as a dream but I think its now beyond restoration.

It's difficult to believe but the Y site just goes on getting better and better (if that's possible).  I particularly like the revamped Guest book format.

We own MG-Y type #1805. Have owned it since 1986. It has chrome,15" wire wheels,4.3 MGA gears in the differential, sports a Shorrocks supercharger, producing 8.5 lbs of boost, and is a blast to tour with. We really enjoy this site.

I enjoyed your site very much the past five days; tonight I'm going to look at an Y that is advertised for sale in Holland. Unfortunately I didn't find an "what to look for" buying guide, maybe that's something to look at for the future?

I am the happy owner of a 1969 MGB tourer already member of MGOC UK and of Italian MG Car Club. The MG Y Type site is, in my view, very charming and rich of information on this model.

In the near future probably the first months of next year, if not killed before by my wife, I plan to find a good honest YB Type in U.K. to be imported in Italy where the Y Type models are completely unknown.

Excellent site.  I have YB 1464 and ride often.  I might sell this one so that I can do it all over again on another one.  I like putting them together as much as riding.

I was hitchhiking home in 1964, when I was picked up by a dolly in a Y Type.  At the time I did not know what type of MG this little car was.  It was love at first sight (car and girl), did not see either of them again!  Happy ending, last week I purchased Y Type YT 3428  I also have a '63 MG MGB 60% ground up restored.  Best regards, David.

What a great site, and so full of useful facts, very helpful.  I owned a YA way back in 1959.  It was a 1950 year and registration number NKJ 404.  MG and Riley Autumn Red and I would love to know if the old girl is still alive.  I did 500 miles per week in her for 3 years.  Before motorways too.  Keep up the good work everyone.

I have visited here off & on previously but will search here more avidly now since we actually own a 1950 YA restored.  One of the reasons we felt comfortable selecting a Y was because of this very site!  Nice to have tech help when needed and this site is very well organized.  Look forward to sharing with others of the same interests.  Russ in Iowa, USA

Excellent service to Y type owners - I am sure many other people visit who don't own a Y - but maybe another MG or even a Wolseley - or both! (like me!)

Well done.

Where is she now-My very first car was a 1948 Y series saloon in British Racing Green and Black, Registration JPT 871. I could tell many stories about that wonderful car "funny and serious" it would be nice to know she had survived after all these years, I sold her around 1972-73 to someone from the Manchester area.

 My Father always told me about his car (MG Y) he owned in his younger years. He still enthuses over the car-jack, which was fix mounted and activated by a hand pump unit so he could change tires by wearing white gloves. Anyhow I was wondering what kind of car this could be and by searching the internet I reached your site. Compliment a very informative site. I will pass by again and who knows maybe I will be sometimes an owner of a MG Y too. My Father would be

As soon as I get my ZA Magnette restoration finished, I would like to find a Left Hand Drive Y-type sedan. I think they are the epitome of British pre-war design (even though they were produced post-war).
