These early cars were only built between 1952-1953 and are identified by having the fuel filler neck on the rear wing, different hubcaps and a smaller front grille. They also have a round speedometer rather than the square item fitted to the later cars and slightly different switchgear.

This particular example is a rare 4-door model that was built on the 14th October 1953 and is a very early example of the much-loved Austin A30. It has been in storage for some years and will require light restoration.

The body is very solid and the car benefits from having new tyres fitted.

The car is offered complete with V5 registration document and a Heritage certificate confirming the original specification. It also retains its original registration number, which is eligible to be transferred.

This car will make an ideal starter classic for any enthusiast and could prove to be a relatively easy and inexpensive restoration to undertake.
