Full Description

1957 Austin A35 Two-door Saloon

Very presentable little Austin; most recently been used for display purposes after long term ownership; few previous owners; runs and drives; beautiful example

This A35 has only really had five owners since its first registration in January 1957. Up until 1959, it was in the care of Austin/BMC themselves, until being sold to lady owner in Coventry who, according to logbooks on file, owned the car for a considerable time until ownership changed again in 1989. The car then remained registered to a chap in North London until 2010. In 2016, our vendor acquired the Austin and although occasionally used, it made a great little exhibit within the showroom of his international removal business.
We would not want to guarantee the mileage on a vehicle of this age, although there are multiple MOTs on file, the earliest from 1977 and the latest in 2011 which show the mileage to be consistent. Bidders will need to make their own mind up on this but certainly the condition is impressive, although not concours. One can only imagine that it is likely to have spent a lot of its early life stationary.


Ownership history is well documented in the file, although there are no bills for any maintenance over the years. It is sure to have had a respray at one point though, the chrome work is certainly better than average, and the interior looks to be nicely original.
Running, driving and cared for, for many years, this little A35 is definitely worth coming to have a look at.
