1st Sept 13 1957 Austin A35 first test drive
First shakedown testdrive in the Baby Austin, pleasantly suprised about the
performance, although didn't use full throttle. Just a few things to sort
out. The previous owner had pieces of cloth wrapped around the inner door
linkages, I can see why now, they rattle against each other, Mary's
reaction at the end makes it all worth it for me, she was very happy with

Eamonn O'Neal and Nicky Fox take a look at some vintage British motor cars
- the Austin A30 and the Austin A35, courtesy of members of the Austin
Owners Club. Nester Warrel takes Nicky on a ride in her vintage model
talking about how she got it and why attracted her to this car in
particular. Eamonn finds out what distinguishes the A35 from the earlier

A Fabulous Austin A35 Delivery Van in Beautiful Condition with Just Four Former Keepers - SOLD!
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED
A fabulous Austin A35 delivery van in beautiful condition with just four
All-steel unitary construction, steel load floor, roof extraction
ventilator, wing mounted side lamps, pressed steel facia, full width parcel
shelf, balanced regulator front windows, toughened glass, large
speedometer, total mileage recorder, water temperature gauge, warning
lights for; no dynamo charge, low oil pressure, headlamp high beam,
directional indicator position, interior courtesy light.
This charming A35 delivery van is finished in two-tone Island Blue and
Snowberry White and looks amazing and shiny. It provides the perfect
backdrop for a highly mobile advertisement for the business it represents
as is currently the case with removable transfers. The correct white
radiator grille remains undamaged. All the chrome work is bright with only
minor aging on very close scrutiny. The delicate wing mounted side lamps
are fully functional and intact as is the Austin of England rear badge.
Black and silver pressed aluminium plates complete the period look.
This delightful A35 was fitted with the optional passenger and rear seat
configuration which has all been expensively reupholstered in the exact
black P.V.C coated fabric with latex foam foundation and white piping
creating a fantastic look. The interior carpet has been cut to exact
fitment but is non-original and should be changed for authenticity. An
additional period water temperature gauge has been neatly fitted and other
than a temperamental fuel gauge, all controls function perfectly. The
spacious rear offers 60 cubic feet capacity which combined with the rear
wide opening door offers tremendous versatility. The spare wheel and tools
are correctly located beneath the load floor.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This model is the very final variant of the Austin A35 Van known as the
type A-AV8 which in the last two years of production, (1966 -1968), was
fitted with the Mini's 848cc A Series engine. Fun, spirited and nippy
combined with brilliant economy and excellent parts availability makes this
van a sensible choice. All major engine components have been recently
replaced but a little smoke can be seen under hard acceleration. The four
speed transmission is a joy to use.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Correct pressed-steel wheels finished in white with original fitment Austin
chrome hubcaps are all shod in new 165/70 R13 tyres. Recent brake
cylinders, cables and pipes provide safe stopping power.
Registered new on the 1st May 1968, (three months after production ceased)
this Mk3 Austin A35 light van is one of the final vehicles to roll of the
production line. With only four former keepers and written evidence of a
recent major rebuild detailing every part replaced this charming example
provides a fantastic opportunity into fun classic van ownership. Suitable
also for business ventures as a marketing/promotional tool should one wish.

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.
