Although this Austin A40 Somerset is now MOT exempt as it was manufactured prior to 1960, it will have an MOT until September 2018.
It was registered new in November 1953 and given the registration number PTT301 which it still retains.
The history file contains the current V5, an original buff Log Book, a copy of a previous V5, some previous MOTs and Road Tax discs, a number of invoices, a series of photographs showing the restoration and an original handbook.
The car will be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner if required at no cost as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class. The current recorded mileage is 19362 but this will not be correct.
If you want own and drive an inflation proof car that brings a smile to you and all who see her then this is a good value classic car.
Historic Road Tax is free, it is MOT exempt and the cost of Classic Car Insurance is low. Unlike modern cars, working on them is a pleasure.
