Affordable Fun for Four: ’59 MG Magnette
The MG Magnette was the original mid-fifties sports sedan from the British Motor Corp. The drivetrain of the Magnette was lifted from the MGA, though it debuted in the Magnette two model years before the MGA came to market. The original Magnette ran from 1953 through 1958 and replaced by the ZB in 1958, the latter featuring more horsepower and optional items. The Magnette has been praised for its four-seat capacity, traditional MG character, and capable road handling. And this eBay auction features a ZB with a stock 1500cc engine. The car isn’t perfect but we don’t think it will take much to iron out the problems. Why would you want an MG with a roof? If you want to participate in popular events and rallies, it is nice to have a roof over your head. And frankly, you won’t be one of a dozen English sports cars. You will have a nice sporty ride that can be quite competitive. Mind you, this could be the least expensive way to be cool. Read more on eBay by clicking here.
