Looking for a classic British car for not a lot cash? This 1957 MG Magnette car could be that car, although you'll have to do a little work to really get the best out of it.

The car is in good original condition, in a birch grey / twilight colour scheme, along with a red leather and wood interior. It also comes with 12 months MOT and a beige log book. It's also had some work already.

The engine is described as 'excellent' and it has a rebuilt gearbox, along with new high ratio rear axel, all-new stub axles, king pins, bushes, wheel bearings, discs and callipers, new rear brake cylinders and chrome wire wheels with recent tyres. The biddy is described as 'solid' too, with minimal rust.


On the downside, the paintwork needs looking at, there's a missing driver's door pull, chrome has some minor pitting, the upholstery has seen better days and the sun visors need sorting out.

So a decent classic, but one that still needs working on. Price? Currently £125.
