Austin Westminster A110 Manual Overdrive, Tin Dash – 1962 – Reserved
What a number plate too!
Here we have a super rare and beautiful Austin Westminster (A110) with the great benefit of having the hugely desirable manual gearbox with overdrive.
This is the 1962 ‘tin dash’ model and is an absolute joy to drive, the wonderful straight six 3 litre engine is a total gem and being married to the 3 speed manual gearbox with overdrive is, in our opinion, the best possible combination to own.
This is a very solid un-restored example with great looks and she drives 100% spot on. This Westminster is ready to jump in and enjoy with no niggles or issues. We strongly recommend an early viewing as we can’t remember the last time we had one as good as this.
This has mainly been a one owner car for the majority of her life and she has been cared for so very well, a genuine credit to the former owner. This Westy has only got just over 58,000 thousand miles on the clock and comes with the original buff log book and some interesting original handbooks.
The car has a recent full stainless steel exhaust fitted. We fitted a new battery.
The same 3 litre engine is also used in the Westminster’s famous cousin, the Austin Healey 3000, we all know how well that car goes. Therefore owning one of these old Austin’s mean that you have a very viable classic car for regular use on the modern road.
This is a truly lovely example with excellent coachwork and a wonderful interior – there are a few of signs her of age, but very few. Some of the chrome could be re chromed, but this is purely optional and by no means necessary. The seats are in the process of being re-collonised and are otherwise fantastic. The coachwork is straight and shiny, the car drives so very well. The brakes and steering and suspension are all spot on, she starts first time and every time and she is quite ready to enjoy straight away.
We always try and offer a part exchange service wherever possible and we offer a very competitive nationwide delivery service too.
Come and visit us in the Hampshire countryside, just outside Basingstoke.
We look forward to greeting you and showing you this lovely old car.
