1957 MG Magnette Varitone For Sale

Here is an opportunity to repartriate a very good useable MG Varitone – a modest gem in Britain’s motoring heritage. I imported it to Normandy in 2010 where it has been in active retirement, participating in occasional local tourist rallies and tours with friends. I fitted it with a new MG B unleaded 5 bearing engine and 5 speed (Ford) gearbox in 2011 ( work carried out by marque specialist Octarine, of Leigh on Sea. Receipts and details available). It has done only 3000 miles since.

The car was re-commissioned and painted not long before my purchase. The sills were re-done and a front wing replaced. All the chorme was also re-done. I have renewed the base of the front seats which have been recovered in high quality leather. It is a good but not perfect match with the rest of the leather which is original and showing patina.

Amongst other things the brakes and the clutch slave cylinder have been renewed.

The car is reliable and the 5th gear and the added torque make it an agreeable tourer. It presents well and turns heads but is not concours condition. The paintwork is showing a few small blemishes, there are a couple of small rust spots that have been put in holding pattern and the varnish on the dash is slightly crackled ( the previous owner clearly did not use the correct varnish when renewing it) . The headliner is still its original, somewhat weary, grey cloth – quite amazing for a car that is 62 years old)..

Overall am attractive and very useable car that can be further improved or simply used as is.

Selling because of problem with garage space.

The car is currently registered as a ‘voiture de collection’ in France. Original UK documentation should make it easy to re-register --- at least until Brexit!.

More photos and info on demand.

Car can be delivered to the UK… or come and collect it in
Normandy if you want to do a bit of tourism.
