Recently coming to light is this very worthy and interesting MG Y Type hot rod. Located in Brazil, this car belongs to Aldemir Humberto and he has kindly provided us with the following information on the car, along with the two photographs below:
A Selection of photographs from Aldemir's website showing the restoration of the hot rod.
Also, a long while ago the late Bill Atkinson passed over to the Register these photographs of this UK Y Type under going conversion to a hot rod too. Sadly, unlike the Brazilian car, we have no details of the owner or current whereabouts of this car. However, we would love to hear from the owners and get more information if possible! Of interest though is that if you compare the number plates, this car may be the one featured in the August 2003 Picture of the Month sent in by Ken Jones as although the licence plate is hard to make out, it could be PYC 138! A check for the licence plate PYC 138 on an MG failed to yiled any positive record on the DVLA website in the UK so it is probable that this car has now been scrapped.
