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.
There are two ways to Register your Y. You can either:
