This charming MG YA example was first registered on the 9th December 1949 as KVO767 in Nottingham, England to a Mr Terence Desmond Hanson. The original UK buff Log Book shows seven additional owners with many invoices in the history file from 1974 to 1979 whilst owned by a Mr Roger Davis. The final entry is to a Mr Cyril Birch, incredibly still in the Nottingham area. On the 7th of July 1980, the last existing MOT certificate, shows the car with a mileage of 76,886 miles, so there is every chance that the total miles are accurate. The car would appear to have been then laid up for an intended restoration which, as so often occurs, simply did not happen. The last owner purchased the car in 2008 and with the assistance of an MG specialist in Essen, Germany, dully exported it there. In essence, it was in wonderful condition but it was quickly decided to restore the car which would eventually evolve into a full frame-off nut and bolt restoration, culminating in Historical German registration in 2014, with an insurance valuation of €29,500 and a Condition Report (-1). The total cost of the restoration was way in excess of €40,000!
