SUPPLIED TO ITS FIRST OWNER IN DORSET ON 26TH APRIL 1957, THE MAGNETTE WAS TO STAY IN HIS POSSESSION UNTIL 1991 WHEN IT PASSED TO A RELATIVE IN HAMPSHIRE. ACQUIRED BY THE 3RD OWNER IN 1995 WHO SUBSEQUENTLY UNDERTOOK A PROFESSIONAL 'LAST NUT AND BOLT' REBUILD TO ORIGINAL SPECIFICATION INCLUDING FULL ENGINE AND GEARBOX OVERHAUL.

THIS LOVELY MAGNETTE WITH ITS ORIGINAL INTERIOR HAS BEEN CHERISHED SINCE AND MAINTAINED BY A LOCAL MG SPECIALIST.
ONLY FOR SALE NOW DUE TO THE OWNER'S ADVANCING YEARS THIS EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE IS AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO DRIVE AND
HAS THE FEEL OF A MUCH YOUNGER VEHICLE KEEPING UP EFFORTLESSLY WITH MODERN TRAFFIC.

WE FEEL THAT ANY SERIOUS MAGNETTE BUYER WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND A BETTER, MORE HONEST EXAMPLE FOR SALE.

ALSO WORTH MENTIONING IS THE FACT THAT WHILST MODERN INDICATORS HAVE BEEN FITTED, THE SEMAPHORE INDICATORS ARE STILL FULLY OPERATIONAL! A VERY VALUABLE AND CORRECT HMV RADIO WITH FM UPGRADE IS ALSO FITTED.

THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL HISTORY FILE INCLUDING PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE REBUILD AND ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE, BUFF (RF60) LOGBOOK AND SUBSEQUENT LOGBOOKS WHICH CLEARLY TRACK THE OWNERSHIP.
