1955 Austin Of England A30
This little A30 has spent most of its life in Guernsey until shipped back to the UK last year.
This matching numbers A30 has only done 62,000 miles from new and only covered 3000 miles in the last 22 years.
There is a lovely history file on the car with many receipts dating back to the early 1980's and several original hand books and workshop manuals.
Its condition can only be described as superb the paintwork has a great shine as you can see from the pictures and has no rot or rust showing what so ever its a truly solid and honest car. The car is not concours but a car to be proud of at any show that requires no further expense spending on it just clean, enjoy and polish the chrome trim.
She has just been through an MOT with no advisories at all.
Interior and Equipment
Lovely red seats and carpet in very good condition. The dash and clocks look and shine like new and all switches and gauges work as they should.
Continental pack which includes the front sun screen, door mirror, spot light and rear GB chrome badge.
mmmmm let me think!!!! A heater which works great
Beautifully straight panels and door gaps, all panels open and close as they should like the day they were new. The Baby Austin has been fully painted underneath and is sold with no rust or rot to be found. The semaphore trafficators work with a swift clean action. All bright work is first class with no evidence of rust or tarnishing.
Wheels and Tyres.
Almost new white wall tyres with perfect chrome hub caps.
Engine and Transmission
The little 803cc A-series engine starts on the first turn of the key and is very smooth and quiet in operation. The clutch and gearbox are excellent its a joy and pleasure to drive. As you can see from the pictures the engine bay is immaculately clean and the engine runs dry with no leaks what so ever.
