1950 MG YA Saloon


SOLD £14,388

The MG YA carried over some engineering from pre-war Morris models. Though the ‘YA’ had rack and pinion steering with independent front suspension,  although it still had single-leading-shoe front brakes. 

The IFS and steering put the car miles ahead of contemporary efforts by others, such as Austin and Ford.

The all-steel body resembled that of the Morris but had suitable modifications to the front and rear end to give a traditional MG 'look' with specially swept tail and rear wings.

The whole car was extremely well appointed by post-war depression standards.There were many features fitted as standard on the Y type such as the Smiths 'Jackall' four wheel hydraulic jacking system

The car we have here is presented well &  fitted with a wire wheel conversion, which looks the part!

Another upgrade includes a FIVE SPEED CONVERSION using Fords type 9 gearbox. (We have actually been fitting these gearbox's to many vehicles in recent years, predominantly MG 'T' series with great success) and twin carburettors.

The interior is lovely. Finished in a light Tan pipped in a darker Brown. The wood veneer on both the dash and door cappings also looks great and the whole interior is set off nicely by the head cloth and sunroof.

The engine compartment is a picture, even down to a spare set of spark plugs mounted on the bulkhead.

Bound to create tremendous interest.
