Fabulously original Vintage AE Chummy; remarkably complete with
some nice features; engine turns; the prefect oily rag resto; rare
Last on the road in 1966, according to an old MOT on file, this highly original and unmolested Chummy was discovered in a London lockup where it had been sitting patiently for some 40 years.
It had clearly been well loved and someone had stripped the paint off the car which still looks pretty solid. It was sold in 2019 as a non-running project and remains pretty much in this state apart from some careful corrosion protection. The vendor was attempting to reunite the car with its original number GH 1327 when the continuation buff logbook turned up which made the process much easier, so it now comes with a current V5C showing its original London GH number which is non-transerable.
It retains some of its original upholstery around the rear seat area, has very solid floors but will require some work to the spare wheel holder which shouldn't be too difficult.
It has been fitted with a Bowden conversion at some point and a front spring gaiter. The engine turns over on the handle but no attempt has been made to start the car after all these years.
The file includes a handbook, various Association Magazines, a garage lubrication chart and some interesting correspondence from its owner in the 1960s when he joined the Masons!!
It looks remarkably complete, with hood and full sidescreens and although needs work, would be simple enough to turn into the perfect oily rag Austin which will cause interest and comment wherever it goes.
