Story of MG Farina Magnette, Chassis Number 22237
MG Magnette Mk4. Chassis number 22237, engine number 5518. RHD. First registered in New Zealand on 6th November 1963, this rose taupe ( a dark grey,) on old english white MG was purchased new by a Mrs. Pearson, the mother of the present owner. In December 1969 Mr. Ian Pearson purchased the car from his mother, with 26,000 miles. The car is well preserved, as it was steam cleaned on delivery from England, and well undersealed. In Ian's ownership the car has continued in use and has had many running repairs, such as new windscreen, new screen seals, a rebore, and the odd seat repairs. The car has suffered the sun's effects on the plastic indicator lenses, which are crazing badly. Current mileage unknown.
