Owned by myself since July 200. It has undergone a large restoration with new sills and a lot of work to the front wings, front valance and behind the splash panels. The bottom half has been resprayed in the correct dark blue (Mineral) but the top half is currently grey instead of the lighter blue (steel).

My Magnette doesn’t look pretty at present but it is now far more structurally sound than when I purchased it over 20 years ago but its fast becoming a retirement project!! After the initial purchase I thought 2-3 years would see it return to the road but the car was worse than initially estimated. I had to get its strength back in the structure which I have done but there is still a long way to go. Its condition gave me the opportunity to tastefully modify / update without destroying an original car. The modifications are to include: 1800cc 5 bearing “B” series engine, 3 synchro MGB overdrive gearbox,  4.3 ratio rear axle, Tandem hydraulic brake circuit incorporating an in line servo. I hope to paint it in the original beige / maroon as shown on the VIN plate code FC and have uncovered parts of the original colours. Adrian Tomlinson

This car was put away in a barn in Kentucky in 1976, and just pulled out in the summer of 2008. Although the paint is in poor condition, the car overall is very original and should make for an excellent restoration project. It was purchased in the UK, driven, and then shipped to California by the original owner. The car has all matching numbers and documented history including the MG warranty certificate, original UK license plate, shipping invoice, and the name and address of every owner since new. I promised to keep the most recent owners updated on my progress and drive it back down for a visit once it's complete.

When our ZA 13540 ate its main bearings, we faced a expensive engine re-build. Desperate, we tried the rusty engine in our $400, 65k mile, purchased-for-bits, derelict ZB 32954. It started and ran as if parked 10 days not 10 years! Painted, polished and purring, the ZB engine was transplanted into our ZA. Lucky to have an organ donor on hand!

For auction at Bonhams 04/2005: "It is believed that this Magnette spent time abroad before returning to the UK and being registered as ‘new’ in 1961. The car had been stored in garage on a Sussex farm for many years before it was spotted in the mid-1980s and bought by the present owner. It was subsequently sent to a firm of professional restorers specialising in MGs and lovingly brought back to its former glory. Exterior finish was changed from the original brown/cream to the aesthetically more pleasing red/cream traditionally associated with MG. We are advised that the restoration was undertaken between 2000 and 2003, and that approximately £12,000 was spent. Presented in very good condition throughout and reported as driving very well, the car is offered with history file containing sundry restoration invoices, expired MoTs and (copy) old-style logbook, and comes with Swansea V5 registration document and MoT to January 2006.
Estimate: £5,000 to 7,000"

 Original owner purchased the car new in May 1958 in GB for use while in the service. Returned to the USA in March 1960, and remained in the family as a family car for fun outings and daily driver use until the owner died in 1988. It had the motor replaced with a Gold Seal engine in 1968 with the odometer showing over 90,000 miles.The original owner's daughter took the car with her to Ann Arbor Mi.in May 1988 where it remained in her hands until June 1995. The original Gold seal engine required a rebuild with the odometer showing 15,000 (obviously 115,000 miles) which is not much use from a "factory rebuild" ,only 25,000 miles.  Ms. Lane stated she and her children learned to drive in this car, so she didn't like to part with it. 
I now have the car and will continue bringing it back to life.

I have owned my Magnette since 1977. I have always maintained it as best any one can. Six years ago I parked it in the garage and left it untouched for the 6 years. We were beginning a family and they needed me more than the Magnette.  In January 2002 I decided to get the Magnette back on the road. It took about 6 hours, separately, to get it back up & running. This car is mostly complete with as much original as possible. The picture of the Magnette and myself are at my 45th birthday . Buckey in AZ.

This Varitone was exported to Japan in 1997 and bought by Mr. Hideo Ohba from Tokyo, who uses his car every Sunday. In 1950's, new Magnettes were imported from England by a Japanese car dealer. I think about 20-30 cars were imported. These cars were mainly LHD for US soldiers and some of these are now available to buy. After 1980's British Car Shop imported Magnettes mainly from England, I think also about 20-30 cars. Read more...

This vehice was purchased in the former Republic of Southern Rhodesia by a police officer (ID unknown) based in (the then) Hastings, Rhodesia. It was then bought by a person (name known to me) who took it with him to South Africa at the time of Zimbabwe's independence. I then bought it through an intermediary (in 1989) and imported it into Austalia in 1991 - after driving it for a while and then starting a full restoration.  My understanding is that the car was imported into Rhodesia as a fully built vehicle (as suggested by the car number identification code).  The car was (so far as I know) completely original. I have removed (and had re-built) the original engine and have fitted a 1622cc unit I took from a very sad South African donor car which was then donated to local club members for parts. Although I started restoring the car in South Africa, I (and I have lots of excuses) did not complete the project until, with the hard work of one person in particular and advice, parts and support of a number of others, the car was on the road this month and passed the requirements of the local registration authorities (after a full over-the-pits inspection) this week - on the first try.
It is now fully registered for everyday use! John Monico, Canberra, Australia

One Careful Owner from New. Joan Evans is one of our special members who is over eighty years old and therefore now qualifies for a free subscription to Enjoying MG. Joan has owned her MG Magnette ZB Varitone since it was bought new in 1958 by her father for her personal use and she has driven the car on an almost a daily basis ever since. The MG sports saloon is still in superb running order and always fires up at the first press of the starter button. The only modifications that have been made to the Magnette are the fitting of an electric windscreen washer and separate rear flashers, as the original rear indicator system was inadequate and hazardous. The Magnette is only on its fourth heavy duty battery from new and has covered 96,960 miles in total. The Magnette is very special to Joan and her husband Roy who says that the wherever they go the MG is much admired by young and old alike.

I bought this car in mid 2005 at which time it had just had an MGB 1800 engine/rear axle/brake servo fitted. In 2006 I had a 5 speed Sierra gearbox fitted and in early 2007 had both rear wings and section beneath the boot completely replaced and resprayed including work to the rear spring hangers and inner offside wing.
Next on the list, when I get some money, is a disc brake conversion on the front and new springs all round. We use the car regularly and normally take it to France, with other MG's, on holiday each year.

The car was painted over 12 years ago and less than one year the the paint fell off. It sat for over 10 years, so last year my wife said, " Strip the car and paint it again and get it back on the road." So last year I stripped it, primed it and had it painted again. I have been putting it back together this past summer and the engine is in the machine shop getting a redo. I have installed a Datsun 5 speed and painted it light green and dark green. James Jans

From there it made its way east to Nova Scotia where it was sold to a fellow in the Canadian Army. When he retired he brought it west to Ontario. He ran a restaurant and needed money for startup and I became the owner.

The car was registered to Air Vice Marshall Arthur Percy Ledger, who kept it until his death in 1969. I bought it in May 1969 from a family member who inherited the car but didn’t use it.  It was our only family transport for 5 years then failed its MoT in 1974 at which time we decided to buy another car and eventually restore the Magnette. Three houses and many cars later we took it to John Shorten in Norwich in April 2006 and brought it home almost exactly one year later. It has the original engine and the work done was very comprehensive, including the fitting of 2 ‘new’ right hand doors and front wing I had owned since 1970, still in factory primer with the tags attached. It was taken down to bare metal and re-sprayed in the original cellulose colours. I have new carpets and headlining, as well as new inner door panels still to fit – that will be part of this year’s work but my wife Sheila and I are looking forward to going to Silverstone and other events throughout the year even in its slightly unfinished state. I advise people that it has been a financial disaster, but only in simple money terms. In respect of an investment in my retirement, which starts in 5 weeks’ time, it will be worth every penny. I attach a photograph for you to see when we got it home last year, then at Sledmere in Yorkshire: Barrie Hope.

I am the 5th owner of this car. This car was sold new in Seattle Washington by Rowland Motors. The Original Owner was Mr. D. Dyar of Seattle. I purchased this car on 23 Jan 2004 for $6500 U.S. from Mark Jones, Mark is partners with a Mr. Tom Mohle, who purchased the car from the original owner. All original tools, manuals and literature were supplied to me. I have all documentation going back to 1960, and can trace all owners including having met the Gentleman who sold the car new at Rowland Motors in Seattle in January of 1959. I had the car repainted at the restoration shop owned by the same gentleman who sold me the car – His partner, who does the mechanical side of the restorations, was the second owner and provided mechanical care for the car for the original owner, and her husband after she passed away. At one point during the painting process, four of the five owners of this car were together in the same room drinking wine and discussing her current state! She is now as she was then; 68 hp 1489cc, 4 speed (3 synchro) trans, trusty reliable drum brakes all ‘round and an absolute blast to motor in!

The Magnette is in excellent shape for its age and runs great. There is a restoration plan in the future, but for now my wife and I just enjoy traveling in style.

Yesterday  a nephew (Alex), my brother in law and I travelled to Chaparal, New Mexico (from Arizona - 500 mile round trip) and purchased one rough '59 (late 58) ZB and the last remaining parts from 2 other '57 and '58 ZB's. I haven't decided yet, but I may attempt to restore the complete car and I will make available parts that I don't need to other enthusiasts at affordable prices to keep everyone rolling. Paid $1,800 US for the whole mess from one Louis Wolf.  Phil White, Arizona

Ebay 02/2008: Some history and clarification after talking with my sister-in-law. She bought it when she lived in Southern California from her boss in 1967. The engine is original and has been rebuilt when she had it (she remembered it was a 'valve job' but couldn't remember what else was done). Was reupholstered, restored and repainted close to 17 years ago and has been sitting in their garage til I bought it because the idiot painter "lost" alot of the chrome he took off. All receipts come with it including all the stuff she bought on her two trips to England to replace what had gone missing and receipts for stuff ordered from England. All the stuff was there and never put together. That's what I thought I would do but didn't get it finished. Now my house is on the market as of two weeks ago so that's why I decided to let it go…

A picture of Phil White's 59 ZBV from Arizona that he acquired in California. The PO had an accident and had been unable to care for her (like many, I call her Maggie). I do all my own work (half the fun of being an owner) and there has been a lot of it. She's back on the road now and running nicely. Originally blue, then racing green -- her PO painted her the varitone grey. I also have a '62 MGA MKll that she shares time with. Magnettes are wonderful personable autos!

This Maggie was offered to Gobby of Cornwall to buy, but the car is too badly corroded to save and will ,he's sure, be broken for spares. Supplied by Mumfords garage in Plymouth ,Devon. Owned by Mr John Ashton who lives in Landrake, Cornwall. Spookey that it is supplied by the same dealer as my Wolseley 4/44 and is only a few cars from my 'unusual varitone' ! being either 35963 or 35863 ! Purchased in July 2005 by Mike Hearn. Now the  car is a real jem. What happened?

John Weston-Smith sent me this picture from 1987 some time ago. He found the car in London, parked on the street. The owner had not used it for some time and the clutch was seized. They managed to free it though and it was a really nice driving car as he said. It's was fitted with wire wheels, MGB engine and Jaguar Mk2 rear lights. It was sold around 1989 to someone living on the south coast of England. Is it still around?

A Mystery! An ordinary ZB with Varitone chassis no. This is an old picture. Meanwhile the car needs a restoration which she will get in Cornwall.

I have owned it since Sept 2000, and have completed a few cosmetic jobs - recarpeted, rechromed, resealed underneath, added correct headlamps, renewed boot lining, added brake servo, added flashing indicators with hazard warning, had leather repaired and recoloured. Now in very nice condition to original spec (it had been structurally and mechanically rebuilt and resprayed damask red in late 1990s by previous owner). It won 2nd prize Pride of Ownership at Norwich 2001.
