Bessie, our beloved 1936 Austin 12 needs a new home...
We have had the pleasure of owning and driving 'Bessie' since 2014, but the demands of a young family mean we just don't have the time to really make the most of her.
Finished in Burgundy and Black, she is in lovely overall original condition. Runs and drives well on her original wire wheels. Beautiful Bedford Cord interior with full-size sliding sunroof. She comes complete with a rear trunk to complete the period look, and a full size custom cover which she wears when not in use.
Lovely to drive and own, but needs someone who has the time to enjoy her rather than just look at her!
