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 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 the Classic car buyer, not least of all is the fact that when you arrive at a show in one, the chances are you will be the only one present.
We originally sold this car to last owner some 2 years ago and have now taken it back inpart exchange.Before we sold the car to the last owner the car had been recommissioned by a well known Classic car engineering company after beinf stored in a dry storage unit for same 20 years.
