We are excited to have for sale in our Gateway Classic Car Saint
Louis Showroom is a very rare 1949 MG YT 2DR Tourer Convertible.
BACKGROUND: Only 904 YTs were built for export to the United States
from 1948 to 1950. The MG YT cars used rack and pinion steering,
which was a rarely seen option for a car in America at the time.
This particular MG YT fires right up and purrs just like a kitten.
It runs and drives very well and is ready for a new owner to drive
and enjoy it as often as desired. It is utilizing the same engine
as the TC, a 1250cc 4 cylinder, but with higher compression and two
SU carburetors producing 54.4 horsepower and 64 lb-ft of torque.
The independent front suspension setup features unequal length
A-arms and coil springs to provide valuable feedback to the driver.
Also standard were drum brakes and 16-inch wheels on all four
corners. The chassis on the YT utilized a steel ladder frame, it
was often and incorrectly said to be made of wood. What was made of
wood, most of which was oak, was the framework on which the
bodywork was hung. The MG YT Touring Convertible has 2 doors and
seats 4 passengers. The interior features leather upholstery and
wood grain accents, which was much more refined than the earlier MG
T-Series sports cars. This YT body is finished in light beige with
metallic brown fenders and a dark brown cloth convertible top. The
exterior color combination beautifully matches the beige leather
interior with dark brown piping throughout. The odometer reads
1,946, but the actual mileage is unknown. Options for this 1949 MG
YT 2DR Tourer Convertible include Leather Upholstery, Manual
Convertible Top, Wide White Wall Bias Ply Tires, and Hub Caps. To
