Long before anyone else lit a candle for the preservation and appreciation of the MG Y Series Cars, in 1978 John Lawson formed and then ran the MG Y Type Register. John also authored the first book there ever was called simply "MG Y Saloons and Tourers". Now available on DVD from the International MG Y Type Register as it is out of print and expensive though not impossible to obtain in book form. The MGCC Y Type Register Shop tries to keep pre-owned copies on sale too. John provided his members with regular magazines called 'The Classic Y' which was produced using the technology that was available to him.

 

These have been reproduced below in PDF format. Sometimes the originals we obtained were good, sometimes not so good. Some of the information contained in them has now been improved on in other places, but "this is where you saw it first folks". This collection provides the MG Y owner with historical source documentation. Certainly, every current MG Y owner owes much to John's foresight into appreciating our great cars. The originals used to make these PDFs have come from the collections of Paul Barrow, Davd Mullen, Adam Lombard and Mike Silk.

 

The reproduction of The Classic Y is brought to you as a joint venture between the MGCC MG Y Type Register of the UK (www.mgccyregister.com) and the International MG Y Type Register (www.mgytypes.org). Information in the original publications included personal contact details such as addresses and telephone numbers which Mike Silk (who holds the copyright to 'The Classic Y' from John Lawson) thought should not be shown to avoid any problems for the current property owners or telephone account holders. The redactions unfortunately do not make the end result elegant, but wherever possible, sufficient information remains to give an indication of where the car concerned was located. We hope that you understand the reasoning behind their decision.

 

The reproduction of 'The Classic Y' has been made possible thanks to the joint efforts of Mike Silk (MGCC Y Type Register) and Paul Barrow (International MG Y Type Register) creating PDF files, redacting and approvng the redactions. We hope that you will enjoy reading about the early years of growth in Y Type interest.

 

A comprehensive, interactive and linked PDF File is now available to download here. Articles have been grouped into chapters and you can click on a chapter heading in the contents which will take you directly to that chapter. You can then click on the individual reference number which will then download the relevant issue of The Classic Y.
