Launched at the 1953 London Motor Show, the Magnette ZA was styled by Gerald Palmer. A well-mannered sports saloon equipped with independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and hydraulic drum brakes, the newcomer was powered by a 1.5-litre B-Series engine allied to four-speed manual transmission and was an accomplished sports saloon with peppy performance and good handling which accounted for 18,076 sales prior to the 1956 arrival of the ZB. The improved Magnette ZB range included a Varitone derivative complete with enlarged rear window and (typically) two-tone livery.
