Description

- One of just three examples known to exist with coachwork by Jarvis of Wimbledon

- In the current ownership since 1975

- Recent restoration, larger capacity fuel tank, engine by Barry Foster to F3 specification

One of only three known survivors with coachwork by Jarvis of Wimbledon, this Magna was purchased as a project from Dan Margulies in 1975. Following a period of storage, a full restoration commenced in 2005. Detailed records of this, including an engine overhaul by marque specialist, The Montlhery Garage (a full flow oil filter with feed to the rear main bearing and side water pipes to the cylinder head being fitted) are on file. Other works included a new, larger capacity, fuel tank for longer range, new aluminium wings made to exactly replicate the missing originals, re-cored radiator, overhauled carburettors and dynamo, re-spoked wheels and new hood and sidescreens. The chassis has been fully overhauled with new bearings, brake cables, linings etc. A fast road camshaft has also been fitted. At some point the engine has been changed for another of the correct type, which is recorded in the MG Car Club's MMM Register. Attractively painted in red with black leather seats and blue Wilton carpet, this sporting 6-cylinder MG will come fitted with a black steering wheel and is accompanied by a Swansea V5, photographs and records of the restoration work.
