Arizona car in storage for decades sold buy an estate (father of a son). Small under rocker rust. Excellent body. Doors & trunk lid open, close perfectly & tight. Cracked windshield and driver side glass was broken so I removed it,  No rust in trunk which is black not blue as in photo. This is a very rare export left hand drive car. The Dorset is the 2 door model representing only 7% of sales. Most all Austin of these few years have been made into hot rods and drag cars. This can be a companion car to one. More valuable over time and easier to use. 40 HP 4 cylinder overhead valve and four speed forward trans. In the 70s it was repainted in metallic looking red over the original dark red. Velour interior in really great condition. Red headliner. Interior trim painted to match but the dashboard is not restored. Perhaps a plan for a different color. I have 5 really nice knobs for the replacements.  Under dash shelf is stock and inside of glove box is really good. The original vin plate was removed from the glove box door apparently for painting. It could not be found. New plate is included. Same Vin# of course. Although this is a 1949 it is very much a 1948 in features. Perhaps a carry over from the prior year . The model stopped production in late 1949. The starter pull cable is broken. I have not started the car. It appears complete. Includes a good 6 volt battery and hand crank. Plugs out it spins very free. Plugs in there is compression in a clear pattern . Pushing it gear in it moves hard. Out of gear it can be pulled around one handed. Based upon the paint on the block and oil pan Im thinking the egine was probably out.  Brake peddle is firm . The frontend  linage is sloppy. Car comes with a tie rod linkage from a car having 9 000 miles. I bought the junk to get the frontend parts, crank and knobs. Odometer reads 01800 miles so 101800. Not sure if cable is connected. Please call with question. I really don't like typing. Buyer arranges and pays shipping. I can help push this light weight on a trailer. Looked for years for it but too much on my plate.
