There are quite a few Y-Type Owners in Melbourne - some are very experienced at Y-Restoration. If you email me at mgyregister(at)optusnet(dot)com(dot)au, I will but you in touch with a couple of helpful owners.

I cannot help with the age of your badge, but it looks to be from the early days of the Octagon Car Club - can I suggest you email the image to the club directly and they will likely be able to answer the question.

Haha Chris - that was my first thought ... being Belper born and Derby raised!

Hi John,

Just spotted your posting on 3rd September.

I live in Melbourne, Australia, have restored an MGYA (Y3498) - amongst other cars - and know my way around the restoration scene down here pretty well.

Not sure what's behind your question but email me if you think I might be able to assist.
