Changes in the 11/4-Litre MG

A slightly revised version of the popular 11/4-litre saloon series “YA” to be known as the series “YB” is announced by the Nuffield Organisation. Detail improvements which have been carried out include a hypoid rear axle, similar to that used in the “TD” MG, to give quieter riding. Bigger shock-absorbers all round are a feature of the suspension, and an anti-roll bar is fitted at the front end. Braking is improved, and an 8-in clutch is used instead of the 71/4 in size of the series “YA.”

External differences are few. Both front and rear bumpers now have overriders, and the valance on the rear wings has been slightly deepened.
