For sale is our beloved 1955 MG ZA Magnette, known as Puff the Magnette (Dragon)
We have owned Puff for the past 29yrs, having bought him in 1991 as a restoration project. He was fully stripped and restored in 1996, with guidance and advice from John and Lou Shorten, at which point an MGB 1800cc engine and overdrive gearbox were fitted – the original 1500cc engine was completely shot. We have extensive paper records of all work done to him, including MoTs and photographic records since 1991.
There are two retro-fitted rear seatbelts fitted for children. The seats were reupholstered in 2010 for a family wedding. The car has always been well maintained, regardless of cost and has had a complete respray in 2019. He has a full MoT, expiring on 27th August 2021.
Puff is a tax exempt and MoT exempt vehicle. Puff has a current MoT anyway, just to make sure he’s safe on the road.
He has four new tyres, had the electrics checked and was serviced this year and is in exceptional order. He has an insurance valuation for replacement, valuing him at £14k.
He has been our family car and almost daily driver for most of the intervening 29 years. He has been used in numerous family weddings, events and on the school run. He has proven an incredibly reliable classic and is only up for sale as redundancy threatens.
Puff is in excellent condition. We have not sprayed the engine bay or the boot as neither was required for a car in daily use. Puff is a very useable classic but could, if you wished, be brought up to Concours with very little effort.
Viewings are available by appointment. We are in Norfolk England, just south of Norwich city.

We can only put 6 photographs on this site. Should you require more pictures, we have lots. Some of the restoration, some of him as Wedding Car and lots of him at various angles. Just contact us for more.

No canvassers or onward sellers, please.
