I would like to personally tour this seller's barn! Among many other odd and rare microcars, the seller is offering this 1954 A30. Certainly seems complete, although I would reserve the phrase 'beautiful in every detail' until after I washed the damn dust off! Asking price of $7,000 is high compared to very nice running/driving examples seen on this page over the last few years...but if its' needs are few, this could feel like a good deal in a few years. I ran the plate number on Gov.UK, but didn't get a hit. For extra credit, name as many other vehicles in the photos as you can! Outside Minneapolis, MN.

Found! The very first Mary Kay Cosmetics car! Ok, just kidding. This is a 1934 American Austin coupe, and Mary Kay didn't start until 1963. But that pink paint job is really something, isn't it? This one looks to be in great shape and very complete, and was on the road quite recently. Asking price o f$14,500, in Wisconsin.

WHAT is that (propane?) cylinder in the back?!!
Front seats look as if they came from a TR4! Neat though
Looks like a custom built trailer too.

Anyone need a pair of America parts cars? The one pictured is said to be a 1967 edition. No word on the year or condition of the other car mentioned, but logic suggests its worse than the one shown. $1,200 for the pair in Grand Rapids, MI.

I really like this 1961 Metropolitan. Very late in the production run, single-color hardtop, and SNOW in the background! Don't see that very often on this page! In Kamloops, BC, with an asking price of $19,500. Thanks to Alan and the British Saloon Car Club of Canada facebook page.

Thanks to Alan at the British Saloon Car Club of Canada for this one - a lovely 1981 Austin 850 panel van. Love this color! Lots of new parts. $13,500 in Oakville, Ontario. Couldn't restore one for this money!

The owner of this 1949 A125 Sheerline doesn't appear to be under any illusions about its value in it's current condition. Opening bid of $400 has been met, with no further reserve. I do have to object to the term 'complete car', however. Wouldn't a complete car have upholstery on the seats? smiling smiley In Delaware.

Well, this is interesting. Owner has tried to sell one of these Austin 8s several times on Ebay, to no avail. Now he's pairing it with a much nicer blue 1948 Austin 8, which appears to have a brand new interior, an engine that runs, and who knows what else? Asking price of $5,500 still seems high to me. Thoughts?

Outside of Boston is this 1966 Princess. Doesn't sound like the owner is very fond of the brakes, or the RHD! Could certainly use more photos! $28,000 seems like all the money.

The owner of this 1953 Princess appears to be bailing out of the restoration process. Although much work is said to have been done, and the car is alleged to be 'complete', I always worry that parts go walkabout when a car as been disassembled as long as this one appears to have been. I mean, the 'assembled' photo isn't even digital! Asking price of $10,000 seems very optimistic.

Looks like it needs a bunch of work including reassembly of the bodywork. Has a rebuilt engine.

1938 Austin 10 Cambridge engine & other parts available. Engine has been rebuilt. 0 miles on engine. Body Needs work. All the fenders & hood are in good shape It would make a great street rod. The car is slightly bigger than an Anglia.

Brock, is there any difference between the Austin 8 and the 10, other than engine size?
