Even those with a keen eye for detail would think our 1949 MG Y Tourer started it’s life in white…but believe it or not she was originally Clipping Blue (BMC Code: BU14, ICI Code: 0146 or 3300).
A credit to it’s former restorer this car shows almost no signs of the original blue colour.
We were starting to become a little nervous; the owner’s told us of the blue colour, all of the paperwork suggests it was blue, even looking back through the history, the signs all say she was blue but we could see very little physical evidence of this on the vehicle.
We have now completed the huge task of stripping her and just as we thought we’d covered every angle we removed a bracket. That one bracket told the full story!
