MG Y Type
The registration of cars and the establishment of a photographic record is more
important for the Y-Type than for any of the other post war MG models. Production
records were not retained when the MG Car Company closed down and whereas the
British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (B.M.I.H.T.) can
give you precise individual production history and ex-works specification for cars such as
the MG MGB, this information is, sadly, not available for the Y-Type. We hold the world's largest single database of
all registers pertaining to the MG Y Type with over 3,100 of the 8,336 cars ever made and growing constantly. Not only is this information
useful for providing provenance to your car, it is also used by the International MG Y Type Register for research into the MG Y Type history
and development too. Indeed much useful and new knowledge has come from this valuable source.
If you have a 'Y' which you think, or know for
sure, may not be included in our listings, please contact the Registrar and
tell us know about it. We aim to compile as complete a register of the vehicles
originally built by the MG factory, as is possible.
The International MG Y Type Register has already built up an impressive
photographic record of cars which can be found on our Ys on Parade
pages and you can elect on this on line form to add your car to them.
We would also like to hear from
former 'Y' owners
who have sold the car (or even you scrapped it). Why not check to see if 'your'
old car is there. Current owners are always interested in collecting more information on
the past history of their vehicles.
