Here we have immaculate presented Austin A40 Somerset first registered on 19.1.1954. This car has an incredible history file with all receipts and paper work and corresponding letters, all documented from 1954 to present day. The history file even contains its original bill of sale - bought from Hargreaves and Bailey Ltd's showroom at 39-41 King Street, Blackpool, and costing 706 10 shillings and fourpence. The paperwork also includes an original insurance document from 1954 costing £17 15 shillings; both documents are in incredible condition no tears whatsoever.

It has a remarkable history file registered to a professor in its life, history files do not come like this often all documented PLEASE SEE PHOTOS

This Somerset has been beautifully restored via a bare metal respray - all window rubbers were removed and on completion of the paint job new ones refitted. It boasts a glass-like shine in this stunning black. The interior, carpets, and roof lining are all in absolutely tip-top condition. It still contains its original tool kit, even the tyres have all been replaced with classic Michelin at great expense, not the cheap budget tyres.

If you're looking at a classic car of this quality with all the chrome work bumpers, grill door handles etc have all been done and really does complement the black paint work.

Some of these Austin A40 Somersets have worn gear changes because all the linkages have decayed, this one goes into gear so smoothly without fault whatsoever. The underneath of the car is rock solid. I have driven this car through our local country roads and what a total pleasure it is!

Complete with its original Owner's Manual, cars like this very rarely come on the market in this type of condition with such a fascinating history file. The pictures we have taken on this car do not do it any justice what so ever.

You really need to see this to appreciate it.

Now ready for viewing if you would like to arrange an appointment to book a test drive at Craner Classic Cars, The Gate house, Nottingham
