SUMMARY

Cute and charismatic, this A35 makes the perfect promotional vehicle and is on offer at No Reserve.

DESCRIPTION

  • Introduced in 1956, replacing the highly successful Austin A30, the A35 was widely respected for its reliability and proved to be extremely robust and economical
  • The name reflected the larger and more powerful 35bhp A-Series four-cylinder engine, enabling a slightly higher top speed and better acceleration.
  • Purchased in 2005 by our vendor, the little van was used daily, promoting his business up until COVID and used sparingly in retirement since
  • Repainted in its original Tweed Grey during current ownership
  • Fitted with a pine tool box which does contain some original parts, though this can be removed should the new owner choose to do so
  • One or two interesting period features including the rear window sticker from the supplying dealership, badge bar with early badges, an aftermarket three-dial instrument panel and multi-holed internal wall panelling for small item display
