Lot 1927

Description:

1964 Austin Half Tonne Pick Up
Reg. no. XFX 89B
Chassis no.
Car no. A/HK6/195536
Engine no. 16AG-N-L-4731
The Austin A55 was introduced in January 1957, building on the success of its A50 predecessor with a mild redesign and slightly more power – 51bhp – from its 1.5 litre B-series engine. The passenger version of the car, the Cambridge, was replaced for 1959 by the A55 Mark II, which introduced BMC’s new Pininfarina styling. The commercial versions – the half-tonne pick-up and van - did not receive the same Italian makeover and continued in the same guise right up until 1973, being sold under both the Austin and Morris brands. From 1963, they were available with a larger 1.6 litre engine.
This 1964 Austin-badged example was last on the road in 2005 and is currently on SORN. We understand that the engine and transmission are good and the interior would clean up. It is also currently fitted with a tow bar and a rear load cover. The truck will need some restoration work to get it back on the road, however, it seems to be a mostly sound vehicle and should be a straightforward and rewarding project. The vendor reports that the truck has run in the last few years. It is offered with a V5c and lots of paperwork/history including old MOT certificates, tax discs, road tests and even the original driver\\\'s handbook.
