Here is a gorgeous Austin A50 Cambridge 1500cc. She is, to my eye, two-tone turquoise and cream and wow is this a period colour combination for a 1950s car! Basically, rot and rust free with an excellent and seemingly original underside, she doesn't half turn heads on the open road. And the open road is just where I have been with her today now that the sun has come out and the roads have dried. She's a delightful drive with instant and crisp column gear changing and a perky 1500cc ohv engine. I don't think you need to do anything to this lovely 63-year-old car. Just enjoy it. Her deep red interior is in fabulous order as is the totally original dashboard. Red carpets are fine too and do not need attention. Neither does the headlining. These "cows' hips" (that's a reference to the appearance of the tops of their rear wings and was common terminology back in the day) A50s are exceedingly rare these days. Doubtless they fell out of favour once the Farina models were launched in 1957 and many were probably lost to the banger racing circuit. But you realise just what a great looking British family car they actually were once you see one and then jump behind that glorious 50s-style chrome spoked steering wheel! A superb alternative to Morris Minors, Mark 1 Ford Consuls, A30s, Vauxhall Victors and any other staple diet type classics you can think of from the day. It's a model which stands out from the crowd in this day and age and she is fit and pretty enough to grace any showground. All my classic cars are treated as the equivalent of motoring antiques. This one, for example, is almost 63-years-old. They cannot be compared to the wife's six-month-old Chelsea tractor and they are bound to come with imperfections, quirks and bits and pieces that will need attention even if it is some time in the future. They do however come with oodles of charm, appeal and are there to be loved like a family pet. If you are new to the classic car scene, then please bear all this in mind. Motoring antiques is what they are. I love my Georgian dining table, but I can see all the scars and signs of previous woodworm. Had I wanted a brand new table, I would have gone to Oak Furniture Land. Maybe anyway. Demand is outstripping supply these days and they don't make the old girls any more. I accept all major debit/credit cards and a ten per cent deposit is required at the point of sale with the balance due within three days. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote. Thanks for reading, Martin. (07595-020282).
