My friend and I have decided to sell our 1957 MG Magnette that we imported from South Africa earlier this year.

Unfortunately due to the pandemic it took forever to get it to the UK and during the storage and transportation the paintwork suffered blistering caused by long term heat exposure from the container. Unfortunately the shipping company are not willing to pay for the cost of a re paint even though we paid for insurance

The car is unbelievably solid due to the dry South African climate and also being stored inside pretty much all of its life. The car has never been welded nor needs any and you can clearly see underneath how amazing it is.

The car also benefits from having an 1800 MGB engine with a gas flowed head, 5 Speed gearbox and front disc servo assisted brakes. Upgraded exhaust system and oil cooler fitted due to the climate in South Africa but a great upgrade even for the UK.

We have just had a new Facet electronic fuel pump and pre pump bowl filter fitted

The car also has 5 MGB wire wheels with all matching continental tyres. But does come with a set of steel wheels that I bought for it

The interior in this car is unbelievable. We honestly thought it had been re done but on close inspection it’s definitely in original condition. Having one owner since the mid 1960’s who clearly looked after this car.

The engine and transmission conversion has been done to an extremely high standard and runs beautifully.

This car really has to be seen to be believed but it does need a full re paint and new screen and rear quarter glass rubber seals.

Once re painted this will be an amazing car.

The import duty has been paid but still needs UK registration. We are currently in the process of registering the car

I have many more photographs and videos of the car which can be sent via WhatsApp if needed.
