MG Magnette ZB

Make & Model Family

The ZA was replaced by the Magnette ZB that was announced on 12 October 1956. Power was increased to 65 HP by fitting 1½ inch carburetors, increasing the compression ratio from 7.5 to 8.3, and modifying the manifold. The extra power increased the top speed to 85 M. P. H. and reduced the 0-60 mph time to 18.5 seconds. The similar Wolseley 15/50 now shared the ZB's B-Series engine.

A semi-automatic transmission, marketed as Manumatic was fitted as an option on 495 1957 Magnettes.
