The pressed steel bodywork, which sat atop a conventional ladder chassis, was propelled along by an cc engine, giving a top speed of 55mph. He continued to care for the Austin 10 Cambridge, maintaining and improving it over the years as necessary.
The Brian James Sprint Shuttle trailer is in very good condition please see photographs and comes with a security wheel clamp, locking coupling, a set of car tie-down straps, high security tailgate locks and padlocks, and a complete set of six keys. If not required by the new owner, this trailer will be offered for general sale.
The work included lead loading the steel bodywork where necessary lead is the traditional and longer-lasting alternative to using a tub of P38 from Halfords… and as you can see from the photographs, the car now looks very good for an octogenarian and should continue to do so for at least the next couple of decades with nothing more than ongoing care and the odd smear of polish.
As is expected on cars of this era, some of the chrome fittings have lost some of their perfection.
If best from the concours judges was your requirement, both the side lights and radiator grille on this Austin would need re-chroming but are perfectly usable as they are. The green leather seats have developed a wonderful patina, as have the door cards. The front seats have been sympathetically refurbished with new springs but the work has been carried out with an eye to retaining their history and overall appearance, something we wholeheartedly approve of. The rest of the interior is wonderfully evocative and largely original, which is exactly as it should be.
The mechanical work that was undertaken in the late eighties was done to a high standard and the owner tells us that the car continues to run and drive very well indeed, starting on the button even after spending the winter in hibernation. The only point to note is the rear springs, which have sagged. The car also comes with a of spares and bits'n'bobs including spare distributor cap, dynamo, spark plugs, some coolant hoses, fan belt, trolley jack, and a car cover.
Accompanying the Austin is a charming little book that details all the steep hills over 1 in 12! Compatibility with Google Maps is not guaranteed The recent respray was partially documented by way of some photographs and the car comes with some old invoices and paperwork. As can be seen, the Austin has had 'modern' indicators fitted in addition to the working trafficators.
These were installed many years ago using parts most usually seen in ex-Army vehicles, leading the owner to believe that this car survived WW2 in the care of the Armed Forces and was then stored for many years before being released into civilian life - unfortunately no paperwork from the era exists to substantiate this.

If needed, please remember we have a network of trusted suppliers we can recommend: Thames Valley Car Storage for storing your car, AnyVan for transportation needs and Footman James for classic car insurance.
We offer far greater opportunity for bidders to view, or arrange inspections for each vehicle thoroughly prior to bidding than traditional auctions, and we never stop encouraging bidders to take advantage of this. We do take a good look at the vehicles delivered to our premises for sale, but this only in our unbiased personal observations, not those of a qualified inspector or other professional, or the result of a long test drive. Also, localised paint repairs are common with collectable and classic cars and if they have been professionally carried out then they may be impossible to detect, even if we see the car in person.
So, unless we state otherwise, please assume that any vehicle could have had remedial bodywork at some point in its life.
Additionally, please note that most of the videos on our site have been recorded using simple cameras which often result in 'average' sound quality; in particular, engines and exhausts notes can sound a little different to how they are in reality. Please note that this is sold as seen and that, as is normal for used goods bought at auction, return policy does not apply. See our FAQs for more info, and feel free to inspect any vehicle as much as you wish. Back to listings Austin 10 Cambridge View vehicle description.
