The 15/50 superseded the 4/44 in 1956, the main difference being the larger B series engine. Similar to its sister MG badged Magnette Za and Zb and its big brother Wolseley 6/90 and Riley Pathfinder, all designed by Gerald Palmer who also designed the Jowett Javelin.
After a major restoration in the late 90ís, this particular car was cherished for several years, touring the UK including Wales but by 2015 had fallen into disrepair and was destined to be broken for spares when I rescued it in 2017.
Although the shell and floorpan were basically sound, many £££ís and hours work over 8 months included:
Respray - chrome - trim - engine overhauled - brakes replaced
Invoice file and schedule shows £12,000 spent.
