This month's mid-month Reprinted Article comes from Restored Cars magazine of Australia, September-October 1976 and covers a test drive in an MG YT. Tony Slattery has researched the licence plate and has found that "KUO-755" is chassis number YT3737. Last known owner mid 90's was in Victoria.

Tony Slattery's dimensioned drawing has also been added to the Parts Drawings page so you can make one up/have one made if yours is missing.
