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 the car.

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 former keepers. EQUIPMENT 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. EXTERIOR 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. Structurally perfect. INTERIOR 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. HISTORY FILE 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. MOT June 2013, Tax Except and HPI Clear.





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.

Goodwood Revival 2010, St Mary's Trophy, Race One
Race one of the St Mary's Trophy for saloon cars raced between 1950 and 1959. Martin Brundle was the highlight of the race for me, moving up from 4th place to challenge for the lead in his Austin A35 (car# 1), before contact with the leader punctured a tyre and ultimately put him out of the race. His efforts were more than appreciated by the crowd though! Tom Kristensen took the victory in his first visit to the Revival (driving an Austin A95 Westminster), after a good race with Patrick Watts (in the Volvo Amazon 122S) was cut short by mechanical failure.





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.
