1946 AUSTIN 8 - RARELY SEEN NOW, LET ALONE OFFERED FOR SALE! For Sale

Here is my 1946 Austin 8, now a really rare immediate post-war example. There are plenty of 7s out there, probably due to their huge build numbers, but very few 8s. The previous owner tells me that he spent 2k getting her to this state. She is solid, she starts and she drives. She has brakes too. However at the moment her 6-volt battery is flat. She does not pretend to be a show queen nor does she pretend to be worth anything like 8k. Indeed I am asking less than half that for her! She is in need of cosmetic attention (maybe paint her if you choose to?) but is priced accordingly. An ideal chance to acquire a rare classic which will allow you scope to put your own stamp on her! I think it's probably a fair assumption that the old girl is ex-South Africa (note ZA on boot lid). That would account for her excellent structure. You may be able to see just how good the floors are in one my photos! She was imported into the UK in 1984. Again, hence the strong, basically rot-free structure. All my classic cars are treated as the equivalent of motoring antiques. This one, for example, is 73-years-old. They cannot be compared to the wife's six-month-old Chelsea tractor and they are bound to come with imperfections, quirks and bits and pieces that will need attention even if it is some time in the future. They do however come with oodles of charm, appeal and are there to be loved like a family pet. If you are new to the classic car scene, then please bear all this in mind. Most examples have clearly had work over the decades and I cannot predict how much or how little they will need in the future. That, I am afraid, is the nature of the beast in the world of classic cars. Motoring antiques is what they are. I love my Georgian dining table, but I can see all the scars and signs of previous woodworm. Had I wanted a brand new table, I would have gone to Oak Furniture Land. Well perhaps. Demand is outstripping supply these days and they don't make the old girls any more. So, make some allowances and drive away with a smile on your face. It goes with the territory, and therefore must be accepted, that they are always going to need on-going care, attention and repair. Don't tell me some way down the line that the full beam doesn't work or that you have discovered something I knew nothing about. They are bloody old. It happens. They come in and they go out. It seems as though I have become a "re-homer" of classic cars. I accept all major debit cards and a ten per cent deposit is required at the point of sale with the balance due within three days. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote. Thanks for reading, Martin. (07595-020282).
