This particular car has had only two owners from new and has been in the current ownership since 1978. These upgrades include the fitment of a more powerful ZB engine; front disc brakes; Spax shock absorbers; halogen headlamps; indicators rather than trafficators; generator to alternator conversion and the fitment of a stainless steel exhaust.
It has also been fitted with a sophisticated Tracker anti-theft system with a lifetime subscription. So if it ever does get stolen, the police will always be able to find it via the magic of satellite tracking technology – whatever would Palmer have made of that!

I intend putting a 3.9:1 diff in it to improve cruise performance and maybe down the road a pair of 1.5 inch carbs and an extractor exhaust.

In the early 1970's this Magnette belonged to Bart Spoelstra, who was the owner of the MG Workshop in The Hague The picture was taken in 1974 during a meeting of the Dutch MG-clubs at the Zandvoort Circuit. The Dutch registrar Henk Kroese confirmed that the car is still running after a complete restoration in 1995. It's creme over light green  The car was assembled in Durban/South Africa (which might explain the sun visor!) and imported to the Netherlands in 1971 and later converted to LHD. It is said to be a '55 ZB what must be a mistake as ZB's were introduced as late as autumn 1956.

It has done a genuine 27k miles from new. It was owned by a lady in Dorset most of its life and then went to Reading - that chap used it in Holland for a while before returning home - he sold it to his neighbour who in 1988 fitted 2 new floors and had the car resprayed/new brakes etc - his wife drove the car a few times and decided she didnt like it as the heater was not good enough ! So it was put in their garage and left there until my fiancee (Sara) bought the car for me. I have fallen in love with them both ! Gobby, Cornwall, UK

This car is an unrestored early version of the MG Magnette ZA. Since it has Chassis number 1251 it is exactly the 750th Magnette ever build! Of course it has the tin-top dashboard. I bought the car in Belgium and it is an original Belgium car originally delivered by “Romain Richard & Fils” in Namur on 3th of December 1954 (date of the first registration). According to the Hertitage certificate the Date of Build is 12-21 May 1954 and it has been despatched on 24 May 1954. The car has been in Belgium ever since until end of 2012 when I have imported it to the Netherlands were it got the Dutch license plate AR-64-17. Since it has been an original Belgium car it has of course Left Hand Drive and it has a kilometre speedometer. Although it is an unrestored car prior to the official Dutch registration the complete brake system and the front wheel suspension has been reconditioned. A new stainless steel exhaust has been fitted, the fuel hoses are renewed, same with the cooling hoses, the carburettors recalibrated and a master electrical switch (battery cut off) has been fitted. And at last rear seat belts has been fitted to accommodate two child seats. Since then we made some fabulous trips with our two small children on the back seat but sometimes they may play on the front seats (which the prever!).
