Technical specifications, photos and description:
For sale is my well built modified 1967 austin a40 farina mk2. It has been built in the view of one day racing or hill climbing which i will never be able to afford so it is now up for sale.
Its had lots of professional welding done to floors. inner wings. aswell as front and rear crossmebers so is a very solid car.
whole of front ends including engine bay has been repainted 2 years ago. The body is in very good condition for age with only one or 2 small areas possibly needing attention one day (but not for a long time).
specs are as follows:
mg midget front hubs. discs and calipers with peter may engineering tapered bearing conversion standard rear drums and shoes ss braided hoses all round all run by tandem late mini brake master cylinder using racing blue brake fluid. This gives a very good pedal and strong brakes for an a40!
steering box has been rebuilt with new bearings and set up correctly.

lowered 400lb main springs

all in all this car drives amazingly is pretty quick for an a40 quicker than a standard 1275 and will give most boy racers a surprise! handles very well and stops well too not to mention how good it looks! im going to miss it alot
