If you are reading this then you are most likely already aware of the huge increase in value and desirability of these rare little gems. hence if you are looking for a true investment and/or a fun usable little classic then look no further as the A40 Sports is the car for you.

This particular car is in very good solid overall condition having benefited from many new parts over the years. She was sold to me as a `restored` vehicle. albeit an older one at that.

Although still very solid I would say she is now ready for another light restoration and recommisioning.

No welding will be required but a new paint job. some chroming and no doubt some tinkering/servicing here and there.

She starts fine with Easy-Start but needs fuel pump sorting.

She also has a tonneau cover and a soft-top (needs attaching).

She has the uprated 1500 engine installed but still has the original in the boot if you decide to keep her original.

Still has original column change.

 I`m not going to go into too much detail on this one as I know how desirable they are and I am more than happy to answer any genuine questions from any prospective buyer so feel free to ask whatever you need to know.

As far as values go I`m sure you have a fair idea already but I have seen these advertised for as much as £20. 00+. !!!

I`ve had a quick look on eBay and various other sites and it has confirmed what I already suspected that there are hardly any of these now available for sale.

The above in mind I think this delightful example makes for a wonderful opportunity for both an investment `AND` for your own enjoyment. !!!

I hope I have covered most things but please feel free to ask as many questions as you like.

Thank you for looking

 

Obviously due to storage of my trade vehicles and the very nature of older vehicles. I would suggest a good service/overhaul of all fluids. brakes. rubbers. clutches. pipes. engines and electrics would be advisable and most likely needed in some cases.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

 

Winning bidder to pay £500 non-refundable deposit via Paypal within 24 hrs of auction end!! Deposit `MUST` be paid PRIOR to collection!! This request is purely to deter the day-trippers. hagglers. re-negotiators and winning bidders who feel by their winning of the auction just puts them in the privileged position of having first refusal with the `option` to buy!! 

 

Obviously a hugh apology goes out to all you genuine eBayers who appreciate. understand and follow the correct ethics of the auction. but as like me I`m sure you`ve had similar frustrations and fully understand the need for my plea.

Hello
Is this car still for sale please?


from MARIO, dated 10 june 2015
I am sending a query as to whether you would be able to locate for me an Austin A40 Somerset Convertible, as per enclosed photo of one at an English Clasic Car Show. This is a personal interest of mine since that was my first car, which we (our family business) imported to Ecuador, South America, as dealers/distributors for the vehicles produced by the British Motor Corporation - BMC I would be also interested in locating an Austin/Morris Mini Moke. Please let me know if you would be able to help. Thanks in advance, Sincerely,

from Richard, dated 08 may 2015
