Was thinking for years about buying a TD. Then I discovered the beautiful YT model. I am in the process of buying one at this time. Can't wait to get it home.

Saw an ad for a 1950 YT for sale in New York State. Felt it needed to share my garage with my '49 TD. 48 hours later she was mine and a week later I was hauling her home. Now looking for the right time to show her off to the local MG Club.

Just bought a 49 YT at Mecum Auction Monterey. Never heard of one until I saw it on the auction block & fell in love. Very interested in exploring this web site and learning about the car.

Superior resource for everything Y. (YB0610) Now to find younger, stronger assistant to use the information. Not found: Substitute for Red Jackall fluid???

Tengo un MG Y A que estoy restaurando este muy completo, probablemente porque estuvo abandonado en un granero durante 40 años, pero extrañamente le faltan las placas de bronce que incluían los números de identificación. ¿Hay alguna forma de saber cuáles fueron? Soy fan de la marca, también tengo un TC y un J2. Por si sirve de pequeña pauta, es volante a la derecha y tiene un solo carburador, gracias y saludos al grupo.
I have an MG YA which I am restoring this very full, probably because he was abandoned in a barn for 40 years, but strangely missing the bronze plates which included the ID numbers. Is there some way to know what they were? I am a fan of the brand, I also have a TC and a J2. Just in case it serves as a small guideline, it is right hand drive and has a single carburetor, thanks and greetings to the group.
Durch Zufall habe ich 2000 im eBay meinem YB. gesehen und sofort gekauft, ich konnte aber nicht ahnen dass er mit Sch.Nr. 1550 der Letzter Gebauter MG-YB ist ????. Ich bin sehr stolzer Besitzer dieses wunderbaren YB.Seit August 2020 Lebe ich ganz im meiner Heimat SLOVENIJA, und meine LISSY so Heisst mein YB ist schon richtig Happy. Die Y Webseite ist eine Tolle geleenheit fÃ¼r alle Y.Besitzer. Liebe Grüsse aus Izola Ivo Sorry leider kann ich kein Englische Sprache.
By chance I got my YB in 2000 on eBay. I saw it and bought it immediately, but I had no idea that it was chasssis numbeer 1550 the last MG-YB built????. I am the very proud owner of this wonderful YB. Since August 2020 I have been living in my home town SLOVENIJA, and my YB, called LISSY, is really happy. The Y website is a great opportunity for all Y owners. Greetings from Izola Ivo Sorry, I can't speak English
As a young Army Apprentice, I had a Y type saloon MYO 952. Bought in 1966 and manufactured in 1947. I paid £22 2s 6d for it from a garage near the clock tower in Warsash near the Hamble River. The bill was £20 for the car, 15 shillings (75p) for the MOT, £1 to adjust the brakes and 7/6d for a tin of Neverleak for the radiator (Click here to view reeceipt - webmaster). I travelled many miles in it, my (now faded) memory of its fate was a scrapyard in Barkham in Wokingham. It was my first car and is very fondly remembered! Any news of its survival would be fantastic!.
In 1966 whilst working in a holiday camp in Norfolk, I was lucky to be able in my spare time to work on an old MG YB tourer (or so I thought) That Had the registration no. MG 4 and I managed to get it working again. I did get in trouble with the Police as it was not taxed etc, my fault! Does anyone know what happened to it?.
Webmaster - MG 4 (in the UK) is currently on a grey coloured Jaguar so it is more than likely scrapped now.
Hello, I am the proud owner of a MG YA series downunder in Perth. It was fully restored from a shed wreck to a sparkling gem of a car - the restoration was done by father over many years and all components were well sourced from around the world. This site is brilliant and very informative and keeps the passion alive.
Well,I'm now the proud owner of Y 6431. Engine no: XPAG/SC/X16289 which makes it the original engine according to the log book. This is a CKD car assembled at Brittans(?) motorworks in Dublin in 1951 and registered in County Mayo in May of that year. It has the shamrock etched into all the glass, including the windscreen. I estimate two years of my life to bring this lovely old car back to a usable condition. Thanks for a brilliant website and the inspiration to finally take the plunge. Pete Hayward. Co Kerry, Ireland.
I am considering buying a YB and while doing some research came across your web site what a find! Hopefully purchase will go ahead and another y type will be added to the list and back on the road in a few years.

What a website! The information compiled by all the good folks and the Webmaster that looks after posting it all and keeping it up-to-date, is absolutely astounding. I have a number of MG cars and the information held here is a very welcome addition to the technical and historical data that I keep for all the cars. I thank all those that submit their How-to-do articles.... INVALUABLE! Thank-you for keeping this site up and running.

Hope to buy an MG YA in the very near future - already have a TD, Wolseley 4/44 and a Morris Series E, so a YA would complete the family of these closely related treasures.

Recently bought YB 0973 as a rolling chassis with no motor or gearbox. Previous owner bought it basically as a body and chassis. He fitted it with a MGB 3.9:1 rear end and a MGB front suspension both with wire wheels. I am planning to install a MGB 1800 motor and gearbox. Not being a mechanic I would love to talk to anyone on the registry that has completed this conversion so I know what to expect. Feel free to email me. I'm looking forward to get this classic back on the road.

My father had a Y-Type in the early 1950s. I don't have any photographs, but I can see it in my mind, when we picked up my mother and baby sister, soon after she was born in Chase Farm Hospital in 1950. The registration number was BNH 368.

I have just added my two Y,s to the site. One was nearly completed 18 years ago with modifications and has been sitting idle, the other is a total resto which we just pullled out of storage today to have body work done . I have all parts and motor g/box but will need a new steering wheel and time ! Looking forward to an interesting paint job . Love this site. My first Y and first car was a YT restored while a first year student. Last I knew it was in Ballarat. Yes, I sold it. Before that I bought B and stored the Y . Live and hope to learn.

Hi I am now the proud owner of YB0251 the very first YB. The register is a great place to find information. The car is now undergoing a body off restoration so I will be visiting the site on a regular basis for information and help. I had the pleasure of talking to Gilbert Vickers today who had owned the car since the early seventies and promised to update him on the progress of the restoration. I also thanked him for preserving the car to date without him it would have be lost for ever.

I am the new owner of YB 0973, which is unfortunately in a bit of a mess at the moment - yet I fully intend to restore her to former glory as time and funds permit. So happy to have found The Register, and looking forward to communicating with those similarly afflicted! Cheers from across the pond. Thomas J. Webb, II.
