During the late 1940’s, MG produced two models: the nifty little TC sports car and the larger, middle-class sports saloon Y. This 1.25-litre car was introduced as a four-door saloon in 1947, a year later the YT appeared, a two-door, four-seater open tourer.
Only 877 of those open cars were produced, most of them were exported to the USA or to the colonies: Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. Only three MG YT’s remained in the UK, although later a dozen or so were imported back.
This white left-hand drive 1949 YT was exported to the USA. Around 5 years ago, the car came in a dismantled state back from the USA to the UK to be restored.
It is now in good running order, it still has the original engine with the twin carburettors. The car was finished in off-white cellulose paint and all upholstery was renewed.
It is on sale on at Classic Car Auctions at their CCA September 2017 Classic Car Sale at The Warwickshire Exhibition Centre. CCA estimates this pretty little car at GBP 20,000 to 25,000.
It’s not often that you can buy a car like this.
The car finally sold for GBP 17,600.(UNDER VALUED IN OUR OPINION)
