Lot 1915


1955 MG Magnette ZA Saloon
Reg. no. XWL 932
Chassis no. KAA23 8448
Engine no. 16AMW-U-H 281726
Launched in 1953, the MG Magnette was the first car bearing the famous octagon badge to make use of monocoque construction. Similar to the Wolseley 4/44, the MG benefitted from a larger 1.5 litre engine, befitting the more sporting image of the marque. The interior was luxuriously finished with leather and wood, and good handling was ensured by rack and pinion steering and independent front suspension. This example finished in black with red trim was originally registered in Oxford and it is a very complete and original car that has not been used for over 40 years. There hasn\'t been any restoration carried out to date, and as such the car is now in need of a full rebuild. There are still many original features fitted including the hard-to-find \'hockey stick\' front wing trims. There is no V5c with the car but it still has all its identification number plates fitted.
