1957 Austin A35
Owned by our vendor for the last 18 years and seldomly used but regularly put through an MOT until 2012
Introduced in 1956, the Austin A35 was a much-improved version of its A30 predecessor, the name reflecting its larger and more powerful 35bhp A-Series 948cc engine which it borrowed from the new Morris Minor 1000.
This powerplant gave the little Austin a surprisingly nippy performance for its class and even led to some saloon car racing successes during the late ‘50s – indeed A35s are still being campaigned in historic races today, often humbling much larger machines with their pace and agility.
Garaged by our vendor since 2003, this A35 has only covered approximately 250 miles since and is only being offered for sale due to an imminent house move. Regular outings to the MOT station have almost been its only use so someone new to take her out for some long drives is needed soon.
This Austin certainly runs and drives, although bidders should be made aware that the foot brake is not currently operable. Once serviced, it would be a perfectly useable vehicle, with some cosmetic issues to the paint and seals that you may decide to attend to or not.
