Restoration of early Magnette 528

Paul Dalkov in Denmark has recently completed the restoration of a very early ZA, which may be the second-oldest still existing. With chassis no. 528, it was originally exhibited at the Copenhagen Motor Show, and was offered for sale a few years ago, in need of considerable work. Paul bought it and embarked on a careful restoration project, keeping the many detail differences which distinguish this car from later production - he has had several other Magnettes so is very familiar with their construction. As might be expected it has no front quarterlights, but there are many other interesting points:

 

  • The blower motor (painted red in photos) has an oilcap)
  • Brake lines are attached to the front shock absorber mountings
  • Different handbrake brackets to accommodate the original rear axle radius arm that was later dropped
  • Different wiper motor
