1954 AUSTIN A40 SOMERSET DROPHEAD COUPE (1 owner only 24000 miles )
Finished in light grey with dark grey leather trim and matching grey hood. The Somerset was made to replace the Austin A40 Sports car. This motorcar was purchased new on 22/7/1954 by Miss Chadwick of Wimslow in Cheshire. Chassis number GD875058, engine number 1G991469 and registration number UFM 543. All numbers are matching. The body was made by Carbodies of Coventry and differed from the saloon in having separate front seats that fold forward to give access to the rear.
This is a very original and unmolested solid example which does need work but is, in my opinion, an easy restoration. It has taken me 30-40 years to find one of these for sale as my father had one when I was small and nostalgia being what it is – made me long for one for such a long time. This one is a lovely car but I just don’t have the space to keep it nor the time to realise its full potential. We can ascertain from the servicing schedules that the car has covered 8189 miles by 11/4/1978, 11494 miles by 23/8/1978, 13043 miles by 31/5/1979, 15296 miles by 30/5/1980, 17863 miles by 04/6/1981, 19543 miles by 27/11/1981 by the original lady owner from new. The mileage today is an incredibly low 24622 miles. So, what we have is very low mileage example which starts first time, runs very well and drives like new.
Features include 3 position hood, leather trim, period badges, wing mirror, toolkit etc.
History folder includes current V5, DVLA paperwork, old road tax discs and holder, original sales catalogue, running in and maintenance records instruction booklet, previous invoices, service schedules, motor fuel ration book, original Shell lubrication red plastic folder, AA way ahead mag, ordinance survey 1977 route planning map, AA membership handbooks 1980-81 and 1982-83, folders and envelopes, letter 10/8/2018 confirming purchased brand new by Miss Chadwick and passed to her nephew on her demise, mileage and ownership confirmed by our agent who sourced the car for us, AA information for Miss Chadwick membership number M.289854 and Wikipedia information on the A40 Somerset. As my own experience testifies, it is rare to find this model for sale as there are few made and very few still surviving. This is a unique opportunity to own a lovely solid and rare A40 Somerset Drophead coupe with extremely low mileage. £12995
