They are going stupid cheap. The possibility of an engine rebuild hangs heavy, though.

Morris L getting a bit confused here. Overstates production numbers and I think is wrong about rear light too.

Looking at the Austin Memories website gives correct production figs.

What I did not know was that the bodies for early A30 cars were pressed in Dagenham! Wonderful info! I wonder how built-up they were before they got to Longbridge - parts must have gone by train. Later bodies were made by Fisher and Ludlow in Birmingham. I did not know that Austin did not press their own panels.

The A30 is a nice little car - this example looks to be in 1970's condition when I had one. I had a 35 too - less powerful but the 30 felt slightly more vintage and better made.

There was an increasingly decrepit 2006 one sitting on a driveway near the village of Chenies for months on end. I used to hack past it, but I think it has been removed now. God only knows where it went, but I bet the owner couldn't afford the repairs on it.

Google Maps still has a aerial view of it - it's the red thing in the middle of the screen.

My first car was a 2 door A30. I put a stage 2 tuned head on it and used it for club 12 car rallys. I used to have bruises on my spine from the metal reinforcing in the driver's seat where I had to press so hard on the brake pedal because of competition linings. PXH898 I think it was.

As you were!

Apologies if this has been posted already.  I try to stay out of this thread as much as possible, for fear of the bleeding inevitable happening.

Proper money. But then it looks like a proper example to my relatively untrained eye!
