MG MAGNETTE III/IV

Saloon.

The good old BMC/Farina theme with twin carburettors, some extra bhp, leather trim, an MG grille, and the odd octagon or two dotted around the scenery. MkIV (1.6-litres/68bhp, automatic option) from August '61. Slightly more 'U' than an Oxford or Cambridge, but better suited to country cabbies than to enthusiasts.
