Buying a classic MG - our guide makes it easier and safer to get the car you want
Guide to buying a classic MG
Our guide covers the essential checks you need to make when you set about buying a classic MG - doing your research so you have a good understanding of the model, making the vital vehicle data check, preparing a checklist of questions to ask the seller when you first call, visiting the seller to check and test drive the car, negotiating the price for the car, ensuring you have all the necessary paperwork, making a safe payment, getting a receipt, the car and the keys and finally notifying DVLA that you are the new registered keeper. See our five part guide to buying a classic MG.
