A unique model of the Maestro production line has been donated to Maestro & Montego Owners Club by the Museum of Oxford. Boasting incredible levels of detail, the scaled-down Maestros are made of fibreglass and encased in a wooden display unit.

So far the club has found out that it was used in 1986 in relation with the Year of Industry, and went round as part of a display in a lorry to local schools. As yet though, the origins of its manufacture are unknown. The model was loaned to club member Tanya Field for last week’s Cowley Car Display in Templars Square shopping centre. And when it’s out and about, the MG Car Club has kindly offered to display the model at its Kimber House headquarters in nearby Abingdon. That means people will be able to view it alongside other great attractions such as exclusive factory MGA and MG Magnette models, as well as the extensive Kimber House archive.

“The Maestro & Montego Owners Club couldn’t be more delighted to be the new custodian of this unique model of the Maestro production line,” said Tanya. “It’s a real part of Maestro history and the detail and quality of the model is first class. We are also very grateful to the MGCC who have offered to store it when it’s not on tour.”
