Call Harry 0739 44444 80 www.cherryvalleycarsandclassics.co.uk Only 2 owners, with 4-speed column change with thousands spent on her over the years. A rare car as they were only in production for 18 months as the Austin company was anxious to launch the Farina shape design as quickly as they could. Superb driver, engine starts easily and runs so sweetly, quite on the road with no untoward bangs, knocks or rattles. Totally solid car that presents very well with only a few minor blemishes as expected on a 67 year old car. Well maintained with a large history file she benifits from recently had 4 new tyres, new copper and flexible brake pipes and service. The Austin Motor Company had marketed a saloon variant of their A10 with the Cambridge name as far back as 1937. Following post-war austerity, in 1954, the Cambridge name was revived for the unitary construction 1.2-litre A40 and the identical-looking but 1.5-litre A50. In 1957, a restyle adding shallow tail fins, a larger rear window and a bigger boot brought about the A55 Cambridge, like the one we have here. It used the same BMC B-Series 1.5-litre (1489 cc) 51 bhp engine, which gave a top speed in excess of 75 mph. Also new for the A55 Cambridge was the option for two-tone paint - it having become a popular automotive styling feature of the mid-fifties. Around 154,000 cars were produced before the Farina-styled A55 Cambridge MkII with larger tail fins was introduced in 1959. Very affordable entry level classic car, classic insurance, economical to run with inexpensive maintenance costs. All parts are readily available for ongoing care and maintenance. Owning a classic car is a hobby & you will spend time & money in ongoing care & maintenance, this is part of the joy of owning a classic car. Please don’t compare her to a modern car. She’s 67 years old, and there may be imperfections, blemishes & age related wear & tear in there somewhere, even if not apparent on first viewing. It is inevitable that some degree of tinkering may be required even to a car in this condition. The description of the car is based on my opinion, & it could be that it will differ from yours. If you are considering buying the car, I recommend that you examine & test the car and satisfy yourself as to its condition and suitability.
