Listing Detail Tabs

This is my little Austin which I bought with grand plans to put back on the road, but unfortunately a back injury means I am no longer able to complete it. The highlights are as follows:

Extensive panel work professionally done to remove all rust. Only a very small amount of smoothing a little filler around the rear end and she'll be ready for sanding and paint.

Registration is live in the system and currently on hold/restoration so does not require a re-vin. Just get a WOF and you're on the road again.

Complete 1098cc engine and smooth case gearbox (Was a runner when removed from donor car).

All other necessary parts required to complete, plus some extra spares as well and a front cut off another car they includes the wiring loom.

Easy to move so would be a simple job to put on a transporter I believe. Happy to assist the buyer where I can in that regard.

I have a number of extras that the buyer will get first option of buying in addition to the van, including a disassembled but sound marina 1275cc engine and gearbox, later model mini alternator, Austin/MG metro HIF44 carb, Honda prelude/civic seats etc, all of which would be a simple fit and yet a healthy improvement over the original parts, whilst still being able to return to factory original when desired. A-frame shown not included.

With the work that has been put into rebuilding the body on this, you won't find a better one anywhere, but there is still painting and reassembly to be done on this rare and appreciating classic.

The first picture is a concept I had drawn by David Irving, motoring artist from Banks Peninsula, of how I was intending to build it up.

Has been dry stored throughout my ownership.

May consider swap, early starlet or corolla, anything 4age, 13b, 12a or v8 powered; mx5, sprite, midget, or spitfire, other English classics; classic motorcycle; 4x4 or 4wd Escudo, Vitara, ute or similar depending what you've got. Anything considered.
