  • For Sale: modified 1959 Austin A35

    Hi Folks,
    Reluctantly offering this modified Austin A35 that I'm the custodian of, for sale, hoping someone on Backroads will be interested before I post on Donedeal.
    I only use it about twice a year and really, it should be out there being enjoyed a lot more, by a new owner.

    ​​​​​
    ​​​​​
    One too many toys for my current work circumstances, means I can’t hang on to both.
    ​​​​​​
    ​​​​​

    The car was a professional build by a rally fabrication business, for the proverbial little old lady owner. See below
    ​​​​

    The conversion was very well engineered and executed, as witnessed by the Metro Servo and Distributor placement in this pic.
    ​​​​​

    The car came with a folder of receipts (totalling £4,996) as well as some old MOTs’.
    The V5C reflects the 1400cc Vauxhall engine fitted.
    Full spec below
    • 1.4 Vauxhall Astra engine
    • Caterham Bellhousing
    • Type 9 Ford five speed box
    • Twin choke Webber carb fitted
    • Shortened prop
    • Uprated diff
    • Front brakes have been uprated with midget disc's
    • MG metro pedal box with servo
    • Dual Circuit Brakes
    • Mini heater fitted
    • Heated front windscreen
    • Clean Interior
    • Good seat covers
    • Headlining
    • New carpet
    • New seals fitted to front and rear screens
    • New tuck and roll door cards
    • Seat belts fitted
    • Stupid Stereo
    Bodywise its pretty solid with some surface rust patches.
    I'm ashamed to say that during my ownership, I managed to damage the rear passenger wing

    Oh that is super Pat. I love home-brew hotrods, but have come to accept I simply don't have the skills to work on them.

    Good luck with the sale

          That car is a former resident in our lock up but I'm not sure If i ever met the owner.
          I seem to remeber it was the only car that ever started reliably at that time.
          A lovely little car in great condition and a very reliable and usable classic.

            Thanks for the comments folks, I'll be sad to see it go, but needs must.
            Was asked a question about Insurance, I have it insured fully comp with AXA, on a classic policy with all mods declared.
            Hope this helps.
            Best Regards
            Pat

                That would be a great way to travel across the Irish Sea to the Goodwood Revival race weekend.

                It would fit right in.
