For Sale - 1956 Austin A30 Seven fast road spec

• Fast Road 1275cc engine
• Special Mk. I Frogeye Sprite wheels
• Five-speed gearbox

First registered on 1st July 1956, this fabulous little Austin was first registered to a Rev. John Williams Huxley-Williams from Worthing who passed the car to his daughter, one assumes, a Miss Muriel Grace Huxley-Williams. We might assume that today, the Rev. Huxley-Williams may recognise the motor car he purchased over 64 years ago but certainly not the way it drives as it has been upgraded at huge expense. The idea was to have a generally standard looking car but with a punch. This I may verify as one BMW owner found out to their embarrassment recently. The specification sheet is long but includes the following:

The power unit is a 1275cc rebuilt Midget engine with roller rockers, uprated cam, Duplex timing chain, Fidanza alloy flywheel etc. plus a Les Ryder gas flowed cylinder head. The gearbox is a Type-9 five-speed unit with hydraulic clutch. The braking system has been upgraded to Midget front discs with the rear brakes modified to hydraulic with Minifin drums. The steering column, fitted with a leather Moto-Lita steering wheel, is an A40 unit that is slightly shorter than the A30 column but incorporates an indicator switch that operates the lights on top of the front wings and rear lights. The original semaphore units are still in place and operate correctly. The suspension has also been attended to and includes a front anti roll bar, 400lb springs and is slightly lowered. The wheels are specially adapted Sprite Mk. I (Frogeye) items, slightly widened and shod with excellent tyres.

The interior and boot space are in good order and includes a tool kit. Importantly, the coachwork is very good and outstanding on the undersides with factory seams and no signs of any repair work at all.

This little Austin comes with a large history file that includes, the original buff logbook, recent and period invoices, old MoT test certificates, an original handbook and a UK V5C registration document. Classed as a Historic Vehicle, it is MoT test and tax exempt whilst the number plate, VPO 389, is transferable and included in the sale.

At a glance, this Austin A30 looks stock and very pretty. There are no auxiliary instruments, rev counter or roll cage and so, to the uninitiated it may be suspected that this is a standard car. However, start that engine and this Austin comes alive. Great fun and always smiles wherever you go, unless you are that BMW driver of course.
