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 YT’s were built for export to the United States from 1947 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 a higher compression and two 1 BBL 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.

1954 MG TF

Engine: I4 1250
Transmission: 4- Speed Manual
Mileage: 1,500 ( since rebuilt )

Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this 1954 MG TF. This classic car is owned by the same person for the last forty-nine (49+) years and was always kept inside a garage. The TF was only produced between 1953 and 1955 and was the last of the T-Series before it was replaced by the MGA. There was a total of roughly 9,602 MG TF’s produced between ’53 and ’55 making these few and far between today. This MG is powered by a strong running 1250cc 1.3L I4. The engine was rebuilt roughly 1500 miles ago by “5R Restoration” making this car run like a top. Speaking of tops, the beauty features a convertible top that is in good condition along with the side windows as well. With an ample amount of restoration work done between 2009 and 2013 this car is in good condition. The work completed include: new brake system, front suspension rebuilt, rebuilt carburetor, bored and honed block .60, new crank shaft, cleaned heads and much more. The total amount of work was near $28,000 to ensure this classic car stays up and running for many years to come. The red leather interior is in good condition and was custom installed to look identical to the original interior using one leather red skin. The red on red really makes this car pop when cruising down the road. If you want a nice classic to turn some heads, then there is nothing better than a 50’s era MG. The compact size, nice body lines and curves really sets this car apart from todays vehicles. Some additional features include: leather interior, wire wheels, seat belts, and a spare tire.

It has always been garage kept in its 67 years of life with just a few minor paint imperfections which are expected because of it age. She is a real head turner. The TC Midget was the first postwar MG launched in 1945. It was quite similar to the pre-war TB, sharing the same 1,250 cc pushrod-OHV engine with a slightly higher compression ratio of 7.4:1 giving 54.5 bhp at 5200 rpm. The MG TC was exported to the United States, even though only ever built in right-hand drive.

The body was approximately 4 inches wider than the TB and measured at the rear of the doors to give more cockpit space. The tachometer was directly in front of the driver, while the speedometer was on the other side of the dash in front of the passenger. Options include: Bias ply tires, leather interior, wire wheels, and a convertible manual top.
