I have a 1955 Magnette ZA which belonged to my late father. It was last driven in 1973 when it ran a big end which never got repaired. It has been garaged ever since but is in quite a sorry state. It had one previous owner before my Dad and I have the original log book and a workshop manual. It's registration no. was PDF 190. From memory I believe it has about 56,000 genuine miles on the clock.

I have very strong emotional ties to this car but unfortunately I don't have the ability or resources to attempt to restore it myself. Consequently I would hate to have it scrapped and would love the car to go to someone who will take it on and restore it to its original glory. Please contact me if you might be that someone !
