Description

The Property of a Gentleman and Racing Enthusiast
1958 Austin A35
Registration no. VDD 866
Chassis no. A2S5HCS135097
Engine no. 54,503

Austin's A35 replaced the A30, its nomenclature denoting its more powerful 948cc engine. Supplied new by Arnold's Autos & Allen Ltd of Stroud, this A35 has obviously been lightly used and well cared for and is the subject of an older restoration. It is supplied with many invoices for past works and some old MOT certificates. Running and driving it will need some recommissioning prior to active use following a period of storage.
