This is a now very rare example of the first of the “modern” big post war Austins.
We sold the car a couple of years ago and it has now come back in part exchange.

It has been in regular use and was driven 50 miles to us, it has a couple of modern concessions, an electric fuel pump for easier hot starting on modern fuel and subtle flashing indicators.
The car was restored, we think approximately 20 years ago from a pretty sound and original condition.
As can be seen from the pictures, it is still in very good order, polishing up well, although there are a few cosmetic blemishes here and there. It hasn’t had recent body repairs, so what you see is what there is.

The 2.2 litre four cylinder engine fires easily and runs well with good oil pressure, it is surprisingly powerful and torquey and propels the car at a good pace, even on the hills!
The column change ’box works well and is straight forward to use.
The brakes pull up nicely and are good for a car of the period, all this adds up to a car that is very useable in modern traffic.

The car comes with a literal ”boot full of spares”, a service and a fresh mot (even though it doesn’t need one).

It is ready to enjoy, use as is or cosmeticallly improve as you go, the choice is yours!
