Description 1955 Austin A30 4 door saloon

1955 Austin A30 4 door saloon.

This charming little Austin A30 was restored to a very high standard in the 1990's and is still in very good condition today. I have some photographs of the restoration work being carried out. Several old MoTs are with the car.

The engine has been replaced with a high compression 948cc unit and it starts easily,sounds fabulous and runs well. The gearbox is fine and it has recently had a new complete Borg and Beck clutch assembly fitted. The brakes work as well as you would expect!

The interior is indecent condition, good seats and carpets. Headlining is ok although there are a couple of small holes in it.The dashboard is in nice condition,even the heater works. Some later type indicators have been fitted asthe original semaphore indicators are damaged and one lens is missing. They are in the boot though and could be repaired or replaced. There is also a set of garish red front and rear racing typeseatbelts included, all the brackets are in place and they just need refitting if required.

Structurally the car is nice and solid. The underneath looks fine and the sills are excellent.

The paintwork is showing signs of age but it just adds to the cars charm.

There is a lovely period roof rack with the car and I have a nice vintage suitcase to go on top of it which the new owner can have(will post a photo soon).

To summarise, this is an awesome little car with a wonderful patina. It is well known to the club and in 2014 it took part in the Austin owners club Devonian rally where it drove down from Yorkshire and didn't miss a beat. There is room for improvement but it is just nice like it is. Mechanically it is great. It has not been driven much in the last year so could do with a check over.I took it out today though and it was fine, raising plenty of smiles! One of the front n/s wheel studs has broken and needs replacing before being driven a long way.

The car has a sensible reserve price. Delivery can be arranged at extra cost. Payment by bank transfer or cash.

For more information please call John on07940976805. Thanks for looking.
