1951 Austin AS3 A30 early internal boot hinge model For Sale
Austin As3 very rare early model with internal boot hinge design (only very early AS3 models had this)
Highly original - excellent contender for oily rag resto - you won’t find another this untouched I wouldn’t think! Believed to have been off the road since circa 1971!
Floors are excellent no welding needed, boot floor good, does need outer sills and front lower wing repairs but that’s probably all to make it roadworthy on the welding front , all door gaps are good , door posts rust free. Unfortunately the windscreen and passnager side door glass were broken when it was in storage - I have found a replacement windscreen and taped the windows up to keep it dry for the time being - unfortunately I don’t have unlimited dry storage now hence the sale!
Loads of great early features all present of the top of my head there’s -
Mint uncracked original early steering wheel
Early X frame bonnet
Early seats with unusual mounting frame in good condition
Original kidney shape radiator
Small steering box and master cylinder cover.
Smaller different front panel in good shape with correct grill and badge
Dash in great shape (totally different to later models)
Small round smiths heater fitted which would of been an option when new.
Gold seal engine fitted that is totally complete, goes without saying mechanicals need total overhaul but it’s all complete.
Unfortunately no paperwork - the original vin tag and number plate are still there so will be able to be re-registered with a little help from the Austin owners club.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a very early example that has not previously been got at / welded or bodged up.
Any questions please ask, Thanks Mike 07708470030
