As the proud owner of what may be the only Austin A30 Countryman Estate on my side of the pond...I thought I would start this thread to keep tabs on the orphan Austins that pop up for sale. If you see one for sale somewhere in N. America, please feel free to add a post to this thread with the link.

Here's a couple to get us started:

On Ebay now, a 1948 Austin A40 Devon, no reserve. Be nice to have some photos of the engine bay, wouldn't it? In N. Carolina.

Also on Ebay, a 1954 Austin A40 Somerset, partially restored, located in Rhode Island

A 1950's Austin A40 Somerset (photo below), at Beeks Auto in Gardiner, NY (10 mins from New Paltz). Spoke to them Friday, they want '$1,500 or best offer).(845-255-7376)

Oh the memories.

My second car was a Devon and my second and third were Somersets.

Take the time to understand what a part does and how it does it, then you'll have a better understanding of how to fix it when it goes wrong. Beats the scattergun approach every time.

That Devon in NC must be unusual, a LHD car. I like it. Wish I had room for it.

I'll add my Austin A35 which I am currently building for vintage racing. The car will be similar to Rae Davis' A35 Goodwood racer.

By the way, this was my first car, an A40, in 1966.

I looked at that A30 in North Carolina and it is very nice, I bought my Morris Minor from the same guy, the Morris needed a lot of work.

Went to the Ancaster, On, British Car flea market & car corral today. Saw these 3 old Austins, all of which were for sale!.

A 1938 Austin A10, 'barn find'. Only $500. I hope someone has the barn space to store it for another 50 years, can't imagine you'd ever make even a fraction of your money back on a restoration.


Next a 1958 Austin A95 Westminster in seafoam green for $8,500 (call 289-981-2738 if interested). Leather interior was complete and original, I'll use that lovely British word 'tatty' to describe it. Exterior was awesome.


And finally, a 1959 Austin Cambrian white over red for just $4,500 or best offer (call 705 944 5771 if interested). I followed this car for 10 miles at 55 mph on the way to the show, then talked to the owner. Converted from an auto to a stick, lovely inside and out. If I hadn't bought the Countryman last December, I would have made an offer on this today.

Another Austin on ebay: 1960 Austin Champ (military jeep). You'd be the only one at Cruise Night with one of these. Asking $6,600, bidding only at $450+.

And another on Ebay...listing says this is a 1935 Austin 'Sedanca'. I think it's actually an Austin 10, but if anyone knows for sure please post and let us know.

Here's a 1958 Austin A35 in very rough condition, with an overly optimistic reserve of $2,500. Since it's only 8 hours from me, I'd take it for, say, $400.
