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.

This Old English White and SkyBlue MG Magnette has had just three former keepers. Part of the reason this charming car is so well preserved is the fact that it has been wax-oiled - doors, rear wheel arches etc, with the plugs visible in the photographs as proof, as if the condition of the bodywork isn't proof enough!

When announced, the MG Magnette was very unique in the market place, as mid sized sporting saloons were as yet not fashionable. Designed by Gerald Palmer of Jowett Javelin and Riley Pathfinder fame, the Magnette ZA first appeared in 1953, although sales did not commence until 1954. Today there is much to commend them to ...
