1954 Standard 8 4Dr
This beautiful little 1950's family saloon is entered by an elderly enthusiast who has enjoyed a lifetime in the motor trade.
Purchased as an alternative to his A35 only to realise how fond he is of the little Austin he cannot bare to part with it.
Reluctantly one has to go, so it's last in first out! An informative history folder includes early invoices and receipts together with M.O.T certificates, etc. Workshop manuals and spare keys are included. This much admired example benefits from period wheel trims on radial tyres, wing mirrors, factory fitted heater, etc.
The general condition is superb with unmarked original upholstery and west of England cloth headlining. The door shuts, boot area and engine bay are immaculate.
The responsive 803cc engine is quiet with no apparent oil leaks. It starts first pull and purrs impressively. We are confident this will not disappoint the most discerning purchaser.
We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le-dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.
