Like many T Series MGs, '391 YUB' started life as a US export and was converted to righthand drive as part of an extensive marque specialist restoration between 2009 and 2011. This included: a new body tub and attendant steel panels from The Hutson Motor Company; an overhaul of the engine, suspension and braking systems; the installation of a five-speed gearbox; a retrim of the interior; and all new weather equipment. Finished in the contrasting combination of Red bodywork and Cream interior trim, the TF has apparently only driven 2500 miles since the work was completed. The vendor unsurprisingly currently classes the bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, engine and transmission as all being in 'excellent' order. He informs us that, while the car has been issued with a DVLA chassis number, the correct one is HDB26/9985, as confirmed by the T Register. This handsome-looking MG comes complete with a collection of invoices and photos of the restoration.
