St. Mary's Trophy Races, Goodwood Revival 2012
A collection of footage from the St. Mary's Trophy races for saloon cars of
the fifties at the 2012 Goodwood Revival. These hugely varied tin-tops
always provide exciting on-track action and this year featured a fine
battle between cars as flamboyant as Mk1 Jaguars, Austin A40s, a fine BMW
700 and the unique V8, rear engined Tatra.
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
A Look At The Vintage Austin A30 & A35 British Motor Cars
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
A30 model, and goes through some of the improvements that were made to the

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.
Tax exempt and HPI Clear.

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.
