134787 / 1953 Austin-Healey 100
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/qaptdt6 According to past owners, this Austin was converted to V8 power and raced in numerous SCCA modified events during the mid-1960s. That meant, when the time came for a ground-up restoration, the car was a fairly straightforward project. A five year reboot, which included an original body and new front fenders, was split between A&M Deluxe Customs in Cornelius, Oregon and So-Cal Northwest Speed Shop in Tualatin, Oregon. With the heavy lifting complete, a race-themed color combination was built with Ford white and deep blue two-stage. And in 2011, when the current owner purchased the car, he contracted Realistic Auto Restorations of St. Petersburg, Florida to shake everything down. Today, this 100 sports a level of fit and finish that puts most European metal to shame. And that solid appearance is backed by proven mechanicals which make driving an absolute pleasure. Yank this roadster's leather-strapped hood and you'll find a 327 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that twists 9.5 to 1 compression into roughly 330 horsepower and 350 lb./ft. of torque. Purchased from Precision Engine of Houston, Texas, this road-ready small block features a balanced rotating assembly, Speed Pro pistons and a modern Speed Pro camshaft. At the top of the mill, a trio of reliable 9 super 7 carburetors, which breathe through custom, smoothed air cleaners, funnel life into a shaved Edelbrock intake. At the sides of that intake, cast iron heads hang 2.02 and 1.60 valves between polished Edelbrock valve covers and coated block hugger headers. Behind those headers, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences fire between Ron Francis wiring, an MSD coil and loomed Taylor cables. And in front of those cables, a custom, 4-core aluminum radiator makes good use of a Derale Performance puller fan. Naturally, this Austin's thoroughly updated underpinnings do a bit more than hint at its history as a track weapon. A high quality Art Morrison chassis provides a solid foundation. Behind the 327, a fresh Tremec TKO600 5-speed twists a standard differential around a Ford 9-inch rear end, 3.00 gears and 31-spline axles. That first class drivetrain rolls on a double A-arm and 4-bar suspension; which is fitted with tubular, chromoly control arms, forged, 2-inch drop spindles, a poly-seated, 7/8-inch sway bar and adjustable coil-over-shocks. Turns come courtesy of custom Flaming River rack-and-pinion steering. Smooth and solid stops are provided by Wilwood Dynalite hydraulics, which squeeze 10 and 12-inch drilled and slotted rotors. Spent gases roll from custom, 2.5-inch stainless steel pipes to throaty Magnaflow mufflers and substantial stainless tips. And power spins through attractive Rocket Racing Igniters, which turn 195/65R15 Federal Super Steel 657s around 3-spoke spinners. Like its exterior, the interior of this 100 is simple and tasteful. Front and center, bomber-style seats sport clean Moss leather. A classy dash centers a retro mirror on Classic Instruments telemetry, Classic Instruments accessory gauges and a chrome fire extinguisher. In the middle of the floor, a petite shifter features a custom shift knob. And in front of the driver, a custom, Mike Lempert-built steering wheel spins a deactivated trafficator. With its smooth V8, modern 5-speed, comfortable interior and vintage swagger, you'll never tire of finding this custom in your garage. Stop watching opportunity pass you by.

British Motor Corporation Story
BMC was the largest British car company of its day, with (in 1952) 39 percent of British output, producing a wide range of cars under brand names including Austin, Morris, MG, Austin-Healey and Wolseley as well as commercial vehicles and agricultural tractors. The first chairman was Lord Nuffield (William Morris) but he was replaced in August 1952 by Austin's Leonard Lord who continued in that role until his 65th birthday in 1961 but handing over, in theory at least, the managing director responsibilities to his deputy George Harriman in 1956. BMC's headquarters were at the Austin plant at Longbridge, near Birmingham and Austin was the dominant partner in the group mainly because of the chairman. The use of Morris engine designs was dropped within 3 years and all new car designs were coded ADO from "Amalgamated Drawing Office". The Longbridge plant was up to date, having been thoroughly modernised in 1951, and compared very favourably with Nuffield's 16 different and often old fashioned factories scattered over the English Midlands. Austin's management systems however, especially cost control and marketing, were not as good as Nuffield's and as the market changed from a shortage of cars to competition this was to tell. The biggest-selling car, the Mini, was famously analysed by Ford Motor Company who concluded that BMC must be losing £30 on every one sold. The result was that although volumes held up well throughout the BMC era, market share fell as did profitability and hence investment in new models, triggering the 1966 merger with Jaguar Cars to form British Motor Holdings (BMH), and three years later leading to the government sponsored merger of BMH with Leyland Motor Corporation.

SCC: Austin Mini Cooper S 1968 - Giro di Prova - Test Drive - Probefahrt - Prueba de manejo
Recently we came across this beautiful Austin Mini Cooper S 1968 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos or receive a like! Thanks a lot! The Mini is a small economy car made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s. Its space-saving front-wheel drive layout -- allowing 80 per cent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage -- influenced a generation of car makers. The vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent of its German contemporary the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T. This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis. It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy (Innocenti), Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and Yugoslavia. The Mini Mark I had three major UK updates -- the Mark II, the Clubman and the Mark III. Within these was a series of variations, including an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van and the Mini Moke -- a jeep-like buggy. The Mini Cooper and Cooper "S" were sportier versions that were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967, although in 1966 the Mini was disqualified after the finish, along with six other British entrants, which included the first four cars to finish, under a questionable ruling that the cars had used an illegal combination of headlamps and spotlights. On introduction in August 1959 the Mini was marketed under the Austin and Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini-Minor. The Austin Seven was renamed to Austin Mini in January 1962 and Mini became a marque in its own right in 1969. In 1980 it once again became the Austin Mini and in 1988 the Rover Mini.





Austin Metro Review (Top Gear 1991)
Quentin Wilson gives a review of the first generation Austin Metro (1980 to 1990 models), pointing out it's short comings, such as the rust issues and the somewhat unreliable Hydragas suspension and the A-Series engine. As a result, these cars are now as rare as hen's teeth. This video is the property of the BBC .

THE BEST OF MOTORING IN THE THIRTIES
To buy the DVD go to http://www.motorfilms.com A compilation of classic original travelogues from the Austin and Morris Archives re-mastered for DVD. The 1930s was an era when motoring was still fun. Small cars such as the Austin Seven and the Morris Minor carried a modest price tag and brought motoring within the reach of the middle classes for the first time. They celebrated the freedom this relatively new form of transport gave them by exploring the length and breadth of the British Isles. These charming travelogues, produced by Morris Motors and the Austin Motor Company, were intended to demonstrate the virtues of their products. Along the way they captured a snapshot of Thirties Britain - its scenery, its people, and its way of life. So jump into the passenger seat and take a trip back in time, through the picturesque villages of England, up into the magnificent mountains of Scotland, and past the impressive monuments of Wales.
