MGs first post-war saloon, the Y-Type employed the advanced features of coil-spring independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering, both of which would later appear on the TD sportscar. The Y-Type shared the contemporary TC sportscars 1,250cc four-cylinder XPAG engine, albeit in single-carburettor form and, MG being part of the Nuffield Group, made use of some body panels from the Morris Eight. Introduced for 1952, the YB incorporated a number of improvements including Lockheed twin-leading-shoe brakes, stronger clutch, 15-diameter wheels and a hypoid bevel rear axle, while modifications to the suspension curbed the Ys tendency to oversteer. YB production ceased at the end of 1953, by which time just 1,301 examples of this charming small sports saloon had been made. An important part of MGs competition history in the post-war era, UHK 111 was driven by Dick Jacobs to three consecutive wins in the BRDCs Daily Express-sponsored Production Touring Car race at Silverstone between 1952 and 1954, an achievement all the more remarkable for the fact that the car was driven to and from the circuit on each occasion. Proprietor of an MG dealership Mill Garage in London E18, Jacobs had obtained UHK 111 with the help of Tom Sangster, Nuffield Group Sales Manager, and John Thornley, MGs General Manager at the time. Indeed, Thornley would later credit Jacobs performances in the YB as being responsible for persuading MG to re-enter motorsport. Jacobs winners plaques are still in place on the dashboard and the car comes with original race programmes, 1954 paddock pass and period photograph ofit in action at Silverstone. UHK 111 underwent a two-year restoration in the late 1970s and there are numerous related invoices on file together with expired MoTs. Featured in numerous books on the MG marque, UHK 111 is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to February 2008 and Swansea V5 registration document.
