1972 Austin 1300 Countryman - rare estate For SaleAustin 1300 finished in Black, originally harvest gold in colour but repainted some time ago.
72000 recorded miles, current MOT and tax free (historic).
The bodywork is really solid with little evidence of welding, a very practical and spacious small estate car.
We have used it for long journeys including a holiday in Devon, with no reliability problems.
The car is fitted with the MG1300/1300GT style engine with an 11 stud high compression head. It has been converted to alternator, and has a brake servo fitted.
The brake lines and fuel lines have been replaced.
Not so good bits
The car does suffer from weak synchro's which I understand is quite common on these cars. Also it does burn oil on the overrun which is likely to be worn valve stem seals.
Paintwork finish could be better.
