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?

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.

Finished in rare and very attractive 'Island Green' this example retains its carefully refurbished original bottle green leather interior and dark green wheels. The interior wooden dash and headlining are also in good condition. According to the vendor, the car has been the subject of a sympathetic restoration by the last two owners, using new parts from world-renowned ZB specialists John and Lou Shorten. It is understood (but not warranted that) over £10,000 has been spent returning this car to it's prime - money well spent judging by it's crisp handling. The vendor also states that “a complete doors off, windows out re-spray, new screen rubbers and Waxoyling making this the ideal car for classic rallying - Nancy Mitchell was very successful in a ZB back in the 1950s – or continental touring.

This car had been stored outside (and still is, in a field) apparently for some time. It looks to be in generally very poor health.There is quite serious corrosion on most panels and the floor looks completely shot.

Blue Varitone first registered 2 Jan 1959, and still with original interior and period-accessory 'Ace Mercury' wheel trims. It was repainted in 2006, but has never required full restoration due to the care lavished by its second owner, Tony Sanger. He kept the car for 32 years until I bought it in 2003, after it appeared as the main photo subject in a Practical Classics article.  Stephen Tickell, Surrey UK
