MG KN MAGNETTE
A face-lift, pure and simple. The K series saloons never sold well, and one way to dispose of surplus bodies was to fit them into a more marketable chassis/engine combination. The chassis was the long wheelbase K1, the engine the N-type 1271cc unit, and body featured a sunshine roof, badge bar and different instrument panel. Sliding windows were standard. With 56bhp it went quite well, 78mph with a following wind being one test maximum, brakes and steering were up to par and it retailed £399.
