This is 'Major' my 1957 MG Magnette ZB Sports Saloon, now in British Racing Green metallic with 60,000 miles.


Capable of being used regularly as now unleaded & with a 5-speed conversion, front seat belts, indicators & -ve earth

Carburettors tuned & engine runs very well, drives beautifully, keeps up easily with modern traffic & cruises easily at 70 mph on motorway.

Fully restored & resprayed in 2001 with many new & refurbished parts since.

MOT & Tax exempt


Not concourse as driven regularly.

Trafficators and heater present, believed working, but not wired in.

Major was fully restored, resprayed a lovely metallic BRG and converted to unleaded by his 3rd owner in 2001 when he had done 50,000 miles. He was then then further upgraded by his next owner with, amongst other things, Hi-Gear's 5-speed conversion using a new Sierra Type 9 gearbox. Indicators and front seatbelts were added for safety and the electrics were converted from dynamo / positive earth to alternator / negative earth. His next owner mainly trailered him to shows and started a rolling restoration. Since then I have had wheel arches and sill ends professionally welded as required and then stripped the boot lid to bare metal in order to lead load the bottom edge for stability. I have also attended to the brakes and clutch by installing new repair kits to master and clutch slave cylinder and replacing front wheel brake cylinders. I have replaced speedo (needs recalibrating to match gearbox) and glovebox with second hand items, fitted a new carpet set, recent new battery and had the carburettors professionally reconditioned. Major retains his working, period, LW / MW radio with 6 preset stations and has only had 5 previous owners to me over his 60,000 + miles. Major has had £1000s spent on him over the years and has therefore been turned into a very practical and usable classic car whilst still retaining the MG Magnette's charm and character.
