1947 MGYT

This car was previously at another restoration shop, and was brought to us to complete the restoration. Car will be restored for the owner to drive on nice, sunny days! Originally, the plan was just to restore for her to drive around and enjoy, but a rare car such as this deserved so much more. So the car was stripped to bare metal, metal and wood was repaired and the car was painted with a fantastic black color. The brakes, hydraulics, suspension, fuel system, etc. were replaced or refurbished to like new condition. A new convertible top was installed, and the supplied interior was reinstalled in the car. All chrome was re-chromed, and the end result is a fantastic car for the owner to drive and enjoy. It rides and shows superbly, and she will be beyond happy.

Restoration has been completed. The car turned out absolutely beautiful with is perfectly reflecting black paint job, gorgeous contrasting new convertible top and supplied interior, and newly powder coated wheels. The car is being delivered back to its owner tomorrow, and we couldn’t be more excited. Gassman Automotive is thankful for the opportunity to restore this rare MG and hope that the owner loves it as much as we do. Sad to see another car go, but so pleased to see another wonderful project completed.
