1957 Austin A55 Cambridge Left-Hand Drive. Presentable Driver. Lots of Character 1957 Austin A55 Cambridge Left-Hand Drive. Presentable Driver. Lots of Character In January 1957. the A55 Cambridge was introduced to replace the A50 model. It used the same 1. 5 L B-Series engine as its predecessor. though with a higher compression ratio: 51 hp (38 kW) at 4250 rpm was now available. [12]
The Cambridge had been restyled somewhat and now had a larger boot and much larger rear window. The car was also lowered by fitting 13 in (330 mm) road wheels which were smaller than those on the A50 but the overall gearing remained the same by changing the rear axle ratio. Two tone paint was an option.
Just over 150. 00 were produced when it was replaced by a new Pininfarina-designed A55 Cambridge for 1959 (known as the A55 Mark 2).
A de luxe A55 with manumatic transmission was tested by The Motor magazine in 1957 had a top speed of 77. 1 mph (124. 1 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 27. 0 seconds. A fuel consumption of 31. 6 miles per imperial gallon (8. 9 L/100 km; 26. 3 mpg-US) was recorded.  
The car offered here is a sympathetic older restoration which shows fairly well. Gaps are fairly even throughout with the exception of the trunk. The paint does have a few visible flaws. but shows very well as you can see from the photographs. Brightwork and glass are decent. The engine number matches the number on the service tag inside the door jam. and looks original and authentic.  
We believe it has been in British Columbia for its entire life. as suggested by the LADD Austin/Studebaker of Kelowna dealer licence plate frame. While much of the history is umknown. we are happy to field questions on this A55 to the previous owner. The photographs should speak volumes to this A55 Cambridge's current condition. It runs. drives. and stops well and only has very light oil leaks. We can assist in finding a British classic car specialist in the area to do a PPI should you want one performed.
Overall. this car is a great driver and a bit of a lark to own. It gets lots of attention on the road. The manual column mounted gear shift is fun to use once you get the hang of it. The interior is holding up well with light patina. The trunk contains the original carpeting and tire iron. It is a fun car. One of our associates use to commute in an A55 (not this one) about 25 miles a day for three years and loved every minute of it. If kept up well they are a great classic for summer evens and light road use.
Please call Robert at +1 (250) 532-6547 to have any additional questions answered or to see the car in person.
