This pretty Austin has spent the last 10 years sat in a garage, although needing a good clean up and recommissioning it is still in decent condition, having been restored several years ago.
The interior is very good and original with lovely big red leather seats, decent headlining and carpets.
The paint has some micro blistering and a couple of scuffs, but even under the dust has a good shine!
The chrome has been rechromed at some point and looks like it will polish up well.
Mechanically, the engine turns over on the button, but we haven’t tried to run it yet, the clutch and brake hydraulics are stuck, so they will need stripping and overhauling. The body and panel work looks very solid, floors, sills, doors, wings and wheel arches all look excellent.
The car comes with up to date V5C, drivers handbook and a proper factory workshop manual.
This is a pretty straightforward recommissioning project, which we can return to the road for you if required, please call for a chat on cost.
Price as is: £2495
