We were first introduced to our beautiful 1949 MG Y Tourer (YT) back in September 2016. She was then on a ship heading to the UK from Cyprus where she had spent the majority of her life in the hands of just one family. Daniel McDonald had dreamt of owning a MGYT, having owned a Y in his younger years but ‘not being able to afford the YT’ he came across a very rare right hand drive model available for sale.

Unfortunately she arrived looking somewhat different to what we were all expecting but even in this condition it was clear to see how stunning this little gem would become.

We even had visits from some renowned MG enthusiasts and specialists who had heard of her imminent arrival.

It was with great sadness that Daniel passed away in December 2016 but by special request from his family we were asked to continue with the restoration and give Daniel the car he always dreamed of.

And here we are…a little under a year later we are thrilled to hand over one of the most beautiful projects we have had the pleasure in building. As Daniel was a very keen golfer it was only fitting for the final photo-shoot to be held on the final hole of one of Suffolk’s most beautiful golf courses – Fynn Valley Golf Club.

Fynn Valley Golf Club is set in the rolling countryside of rural Suffolk in Witnesham, near Ipswich and is a friendly, family run Club.

A huge thank you to General Manager Ryan Parfett and the staff at Fynn Valley Golf Course, Jason at Sugar and Spice Photography and the McDonald family for their continued support.

On Friday 17th November  2017 on a crisp winter’s morning we completed our photo-shoot and here are the fantastic photos that I’m sure you’ll see for many years to come.
