1957 MG MAGNETTE ZB VARITONE. FIVA REGISTERED FOR COMPETITION.
RESTORATION IN 2011. GREAT CONDITION AND READY TO GO. £17,995.
This fantastic MG Magnette ZB Varitone is now 60 years old. After the car was restored in 2011 an application was made and received for FIVA registration papers which allows the car to compete in a lot of historic motoring events like the Monte Carlo and the Mille Miglia events and I believe the FIVA papers can be reissued to a new owner without further engineers reports. The car has not been used for these type of events yet but could be used competitively if you wished to do so. To obtain the FIVA pares the car had to be restored with originality in mind. At the time of the rebuild all body issues where attended to before the application of the correct Ivory and Autumn Red paintwork and then underbody sealing and cavity protection. New chrome bumpers add the finishing touch to the looks. The engine was rebuilt using a lot of new parts including an unleaded head and mated to the 4 speed gearbox with the addition of a new clutch. The engine has excellent oil pressure and is very smooth and responsive and runs nice and cool. The brakes are all rebuilt from top to bottom as is the clutch hydraulics. All electrical parts from points to coil were replaced. A couple of sensible upgrades have been added by way of electric washer pump and seperate indicator lights. The interior is very original apart from the new carpets. The wood dash has been re-varnished and the leather has been treated. The inside has the fantastic period look and the leather smell of an old British car. The boot has the original mat and boarding and houses the jack and tools for the car. The car comes with a whole load of spare parts and original items. There is a large history with the car going back to the cars supply by University Motors in London to its Managing Director first owner. There is a heritage certificate and original brochure, workshop manual, owners manual and the original buff log book in the file along with numerous invoices for work and parts. It is road fund tax an MOT exempt.
