FOR SALE A rare surviving Austin Metro Automatic with an incredible 16,464 miles from new. EQUIPMENT All steel unitary construction, laminated windscreen, twin door mirrors, locking concealed fuel filler, grey moulded bumpers, side rubbing strip, styled halogen headlamps, twin rear fog lamps, loadspace lamp, front head restraints, rear parcel shelf, header rail console with digital clock, floor mounted centre console, heated rear window, variable-delay intermittent wipers, rear wash/wipe, cigar lighter, push-button pre-selector LW/MW radio. Dealer options; Rear mudflaps. EXTERIOR Finished in factory original colour Champagne Beige, (Code LMK), this fantastic and rare edition Metro Automatic has covered a remarkable 16,464 miles from new and is preserved in superb condition. The paintwork boasts a wonderful polished shine and uniform finish, and all panels are straight and damage free. With many Metro’s having succumbed to the harshness of daily use and the elements in the 1980’s, it is a true delight to see original features such as factory spot welds to the rear arches as well as supplying Austin-Rover dealer fitted number plates, rear screen sticker and tax disc holder. Only very close scrutiny will reveal light markings and touched in scratches, utterly insignificant and barely worthy of mention. The front and rear light clusters and even both side repeaters and rear fog lamps are factory fitment with the Austin logo to the lenses. Once a common sight on our roads, this fantastic example really does stir up nostalgia. INTERIOR The Metro Automatic was factory built to the same specification as the HLE model and as such featured higher levels of equipment to include, variable-delay intermittent wipers, header rail console with digital clock and Plain and Moonstripe Tweed trim with padded front head restraints. A testament to the incredible low mileage, the seats in the Flint colour scheme, (Code CNC), remain in pristine condition with no damage or wear whatsoever. All interior trim is as new and could almost convince you that you are in a 1985 Austin Rover showroom! Low mileage indicators include prominent veins to the steering wheel and factory fresh controls and switchgear. The push-button pre-selector LW/MW radio works perfectly but digital clock is not functioning. Reminiscent of a far simpler motoring era, this highly collectable Metro is truly delightful. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The legendary and time proven A-Series engine of 1275cc displacement needs no introduction. Producing an ample 62bhp, this sedate Metro offers a relaxed driving experience with a top speed of 92mph and 0-60 in 15.5 seconds. The engine bay is spotlessly clean and factory plates, stickers, panel stampings, and protective wax visible. Factory fitted with an oil cooler as standard on the Automatic model, the four-speed automatic transmission with manual overide facility operates exactly as it should. Even the special, directional light filter which prevents the illuminated gear selector markings from reflecting in the windscreen at night remains effectual and fully functional. Ideal for the classic show circuit and every day retro motoring! WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Factory standard pressed steel TD wheels remain fitted and are shod in premium brand 165/65 R315 TD tyres which include original fitment, whereby renewal prior to regular use would be a wise safety precaution. The dual line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs pull the car up quickly and safely. HISTORY FILE Registered new on 1st October 1985 by Austin Rover Main Dealers and Leycare approved outlet, Brooks of Martock, this cherished Metro has covered an exceptionally low 16,464 miles from new! An Austin Rover cars sales brochure from 1985 with accessories booklet and price list tells you how a brand-new Metro Automatic would have cost £5,916.46 at the time. The history file is huge and contains a large folder of neatly filed service invoices as well as every MOT certificate dating back to the early 1990’s. The extensive service history fully verifies the mileage and offers an insight to the fastidious maintenance this car has enjoyed. With Metro’s fast becoming a symbol of the era and increasingly collectable, this pampered example is without question of the best in existence. MOT August 2019, HPI Clear.

It has a 1200cc engine mated to a column change manual gearbox. The upholstery is in lovely condition and the load area unmarked without the bashed wheel arches and dented panels usually found on commercials.

In Europe and England in the 1950s, skyrocketing fuel prices brought on by the Suez Crisis were driving sales of microcars and so-called “bubble cars”. BMC chief Leonard Lord considered these motorbike-powered cars dangerous and uncivilized, so he charged his team to develop a compact car capable of carrying a family of four with a level of refinement not found in micro cars. Alex Issigonis was lured away from Alvis to spearhead the engineering team and his only limitations were that the car should fit in a 10 x 4 x 4 foot box, and be powered by an existing engine to keep costs low. Issigonis’ resulting front-drive, transverse-engine Mini would soon prove to be one of the most influential cars of all time. More than 5 million were built between 1959 and 2000, along the way becoming a cultural icon and symbol of British pride. The Austin Mini is a truly classless automobile that was embraced by everyone from the working man to the Royal Family. Despite its pragmatic purpose, the Mini’s innovative hydrolastic suspension and “square” stance gave it tremendous kart-like cornering ability. This captured the attention of Issigonis’ friend, racing car builder John Cooper. Together the pair persuaded reluctant BMC management to allow them to develop a hot version of the Mini for homologation purposes. The resulting Mini-Cooper featured a larger engine, front disc brakes, twin SU carbs and a close ratio gearbox. The Cooper was followed by the Cooper S, with 1,071 cc or 1,275 cc engines to homologate the car for the Under-1100 and Under-1300 classes, respectively. The Cooper and Cooper S took the rallying world by storm, and could also be seen handily whipping much larger competition in the British Saloon Car championship. In the same way the standard Mini was a British pop-culture Icon, the Cooper S became an icon in the world of motorsports. This fabulous 1965 Austin Mini Mk1 is one of just 2,384 originally built to the hottest 1275 cc Cooper S specification. The accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate shows this car was special-ordered via Wimbledon Motor Works, Ltd of London with a build date of September 22, 1964 and that it is one of just 1,060 of its type built for the home market. It was finished as it is today in Tweed Gray with an Old English White roof and despatched on October 5th 1964, registered “FLO 979C”. The first owner was an advertising executive named Roger John Paterson, who registered the car through his company, S.P.M. Advertising, Ltd. Mr. Paterson specified his Mini in the same configuration as the Works racers, and it is clear that he was quite fond it, retaining the car for nearly four decades. Unlike so many examples of the Cooper S, Mr. Paterson kept his car in road trim and never raced it, so it has survived the years remarkably intact, down to the correct original engine, body and hydrolastic suspension. It was used regularly before being taken off the road between 1976 and 1981, when it was treated to a light restoration and returned to duty with the Patersons. The Cooper S would stay in the family until Mr. Paterson’s death in 2003. At that time, Mrs. Paterson consigned the car with UK specialist Sussex Sports Cars. Following the sale, the second owner returned “FLO” to Sussex Sports Cars for a more comprehensive restoration. Part way through the project, he sold the car and the new Italian owner had it converted to left hand drive and the interior updated with red highlights, though he never took delivery. Now fully restored, FLO 979C would pass through the hands of respected dealer Duncan Hamilton before crossing the pond to join the personal collection of noted dealer and enthusiast Bill Noon in 2006. Mr. Noon would have the Cooper S sympathetically prepped for historic rallying. It was issued an FIA passport and in 2008, Noon and his co-driver would compete in the legendary Tour Auto in France. The car performed very well, even winning one of the hillclimb stages outright. Mr. Noon parted with “FLO” in 2011, when it joined a large collection of English and European sports cars. Recently refreshed and presented in fast-road specification, this Mini Cooper S remains in excellent condition, wearing its original livery of Tweed Gray with Old English White roof. The paint is in excellent condition, and the body is straight and tidy. Chrome and bright fittings are in fine order, and the car rides on correct original steel wheels wrapped in sticky 165/70R-10 Avon CR6 ZZ tires that are equally suited for road or rally duty. The interior remains in excellent condition, in left drive and with red and gray trim using correct type materials and patterns. It presents in fine fettle throughout, with very good detailing. Should the next owner want to participate in more serious events, a pair of color-keyed racing bucket seats will be included, as will the Safety Devices roll bar and a discreetly installed on-board fire system. The 1,275 cc Austin A-Series engine presents in beautiful condition in factory correct dark green paint and topped by twin S.U. carburetors complete with original air cleaner intact. The engine runs well and delivers a healthy punch, propelling the tiny Cooper along the road at surprising speed. Combined with the hydrolastic suspension and grippy Avon rubber, the driving experience is an absolute thrill. This is rare opportunity to acquire a genuine, documented Mk1 1275 S with matching numbers and excellent history from new. Discreet modifications make it ready for the road or for use in any number of driving events worldwide. A sheer delight to experience, this is a wonderful example John Cooper’s legendary giant-slayer.
1969 Austin 6CWT Van. As BMC's policy was to provide both Austin and Morris with complete commercial vehicle ranges, Austin-badged variants of the Minor van and pick-up were sold following the end of Austin A35 production in 1968. These featured Austin badging and the corporate Austin 'crinkle-cut' radiator grille but were otherwise identical to the standard Minor commercials, and were sold as the Austin 6cwt and Austin 8cwt. This Austin van has been part of a private collection and displayed in the previous owners business premises as an advertisement aid. We haven driven the van five or six miles when photographed and found it to drive just as it should with a strong engine and gearbox. The paintwork is very good with no signs of rust or rot and the interior very tidy. This Morris is a very presentable usable van, with a very good engine bay and load area. The whole concept of purchasing a light commercial for private classic motoring combined with its advertising potential is one we have enjoyed for many years and proved to be an enormous success. Without doubt the most economical and successful form of advertising known to man!. The van will be sold with a fresh MOT. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit and credit cards available. Delivery can be arranged.

About this Austin Mini Countryman De-Luxe This lovely looking, London supplied Mini Estate is believed to be the second oldest surviving Austin Seven Countryman, its build date of 16th June 1960 being three months before the official launch date. As the Heritage certificate confirms, it was supplied in Tartan Red (as it is today) and with the plate that it still sports (4507 MH) to a Mr John Buck by Car Mart Limited and the date of despatch was 25th July 1960. The registration document infers that the car was then listed for sale almost immediately and was purchased by the second owner, a Mr John Hurford who owned the car for the majority of its life. It subsequently made its way onto Ebay in 2011 where it was purchased by the third owner, Mr Nigel Howard who embarked on a sympathetic rebuild. The paint was refreshed to the tune of over £7000 and the woodwork removed, refinished and refitted although the interior Longstone vinyl trim and and cloth headlining have been retained. The original engine and mechanicals have been rebuilt and detailed and there are invoices for whatever was needed. The fourth and final owner part exchanged it with us and we drove it back from deepest darke

Good original interior and many correct parts but still work would be required to get to take it to the next stage, Records dating back to 1947 show it is a matching number vehicle. Pretty and stylish in original period colour scheme. Respectable condition with scope to improve, based on an original body and fittings. Still carrying many original features, including the leather interior. Runs and drives but with scope to improve after minor works. Engine and ancillaries appear original to the car.

According to a buff card log book in the file this lovely Austin Ascot saloon was first registered on 30 th June 1934 to a Mr. Devon of London and a little bit of research confirms that its BMH654 registration is one of a series of numbers issued in London from May 1934 onwards. It has been in the care of its current owner since 2003 and has clearly been in regular use as everything appears to work well apart from a slow reading speedometer and the Hobson Telegauge fuel level indicator though it does come with a perfectly serviceable dip-stick! As far as I can see it is very original apart from having been repainted in 1970 from cherry red to primrose yellow with black wings and roof and at some stage the front seat cushions appear to have been recovered though they match the rear seats very well. The four door saloon coachwork is sound and makes no untoward rattling noises as you drive along and the doors open and close without dropping on their hinges. To be fair the some of the paintwork could do with a bit of tidying here and there but the general standard of its finish is good. The upholstery is smart with no tears in the seat backs or cushions and the door trims are complete
We are delighted to offer this beautifully presented Austin Heavy 12 Burnham Saloon onto the market. VX 3960 appears to be very correct and still retains a large amount of originality including its registration mark. The car has spent the past three/four years with one owner in the York, Selby area and over this time has proven completely reliable, usable and comes to us on the button and driving superbly. When initially purchased by the recent owner, the Austin was treated to a new water pump impeller, a new oil pressure gauge, new wiper motor and wiper arms. From the history file with the Austin, we know back in 2011 some major mechanical work was carried out. This included dismantling the engine and rebuilding it as necessary. New parts included gaskets, head studs, valve guides, valves, timing gears, timing chains, manifold studs and nuts and new sump bolts. Further work included fitting a new clutch, stripping and cleaning the Autovac and setting the brakes. VX 3960 drives very well with good steering, efficient brakes and the engine runs and performs beautifully. The four speed gearbox is a delight to use, the 12/4 cruises nicely and feels strong, robust and reliable. The Aus
£15,950 Originally registered as OD4251 in December 1932 this delightful Austin 7 tourer has an extremely detailed history, covering the ownership from the 1930's, together with copious notes on the upkeep of the car since the late 1940's. Restored in the late 1990's with bills and receipts dating back to that period, the Austin has been in Jersey for nearly 20 years. The previous owner undertook a major rebuilt and improvement to the engine which is fully described in the accompanying folder. A very well maintained Austin 7 Tourer, with recently rebuilt 'Trials' specification engine, details of which can be provided on request. A very well documented car that has restored in the last twenty years, and very recently upgraded by Torque Engineering Attractive blue coachwork with black wings, with new duck hood, a slightly old restoration in excellent condition.

1968, finished in its original colour scheme of Sandy Beige with Old English white roof, black interior, lots of history, old style log book, correct optional reclining seats, 4 1/2” J wheels, twin fuel tanks, Mota-Lita steering wheel, excellent example, they don’t often turn up as honest as this one.
£6750 Originally launched in 1958, the Austin Healey Sprite went through four Marks, before the Healey name was dropped late in MK1V due to the Healey connection being discontinued in 1971, so the final 1,022 Sprites built were simply Austin Sprites. This was a cost-cutting move of Donald Stokes', enabling British Leyland to stop paying royalties to the Donald Healey Motor Company. There was no direct successor, as BL's extensive range already contained the MG Midget, which was identical to the Sprite except for badging, and the similarly dimensioned and priced Triumph Spitfire. This 1275 cc Austin Sprite was one of the last series built in 1971, and was registered a year later in 1972 Originally registered as NUC292L in 1972, the Sprite has been subject to the attention of four enthusiastic owners since the 1980’s. who have well maintained the car, it comes with a sheaf of invoices detailing the work over the years, including more recently 2012 / 2013, the engine was rebuilt for fast road / track use, with an engine rebore with new H/C pistons and tuning modifications carried out in the last 7000 miles, the Sprite was MOT’d this year and is due for renewal in January 2018.

This competition car was built from scratch using new & reconditioned parts throughout. The works were undertaken by specialists & is finished to a high standard. The car is ready for shakedown, then competition at Sprints, Hill Climbs & Circuits with the 750 Motor Club & the VSCC, although the car would need some modification to gain a "Buff Form". A write-up of the build & specification is available on request. Potentially a very quick car.
