1959 AUSTIN A40 Farina Mkl Deluxe Saloon ~ SOLD

This wonderful Austin A40 Farina Mkl Deluxe saloon will be one of the best examples left in existence.

As shown on the Heritage Certificate, it was built on 2nd April 1959 and registered new on 9th April by L F Dove of Croydon and given the registration number VOY182 which it still wears today.

Its first owner only had the car for three years until 1962 when he died and left the car to a family friend in his will.

This friend kept it for 15 years until 1977 when he passed it on to his son, a Rolls Royce engineer and long serving respected committee member of the A40 Farina Club, who kept the car for 39 years until he died in 2016.

This engineer had a full body restoration carried out on the car in 1992 by Auto-Renovations of Chesterfield with new panels supplied by the Radford Panel Company of Warwick. The original invoices for this work at a cost of £2511.74 are in the history file.

Since this work the car has only covered around 10000 careful miles travelling to dozens of classic car shows of which details are in the history file. It has been a prize winner on more than one occasion.

In March 2007, the long term owner had a full engine rebuild at a cost of £1224.27 and since then the car has only covered 3302 miles.

In November 2013 it was featured in seven page article in Practical Classics magazine testing Swinging Sixties saloons. Two copies of the magazine are included in the history file.

Recently it has been part of a private collection and has only come onto the market as the collector has limited storage and it needed to be sold to make room for a newly purchased 1930s saloon.

The current MOT runs until December 2019 although it is now MOT exempt and the car will be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner at no cost as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class. The current recorded mileage is 60137.

The very large history file contains the current V5, copies of previous V5s, the current MOT certificate, 33 previous MOT certificates dating back to the 1970s, invoices for parts and work completed, insurance policies over many years and lists of classic car shows attended along with a charming hand-written fuel log book.

Classic 1960s motoring and likely to be an excellent investment.

UK wide professional delivery is available. Please ring for a quote. We are also happy to deliver to any mainland port for export.
