Introduced in 1956, the A35 replaced the highly successful Austin A30. The name reflected the larger and more powerful 34hp A-Series engine enabling a slightly higher top speed and better acceleration. Similar in appearance to the A30 except for a larger rear window aperture and a painted front grill with chrome horse-shoe surround, both had 13” wheels and was offered as a two or four door saloon, ‘Countryman’ estate and van. The A35 was successfully raced in its day and can still be seen today at historic race meetings.
This stunning A35 was used by the GRRC to promote the 2016 St. Mary’s Trophy at the Goodwood Revival but did not enter in the following series. In fact this wonderfully prepared car has only seen one competitive outing in the Goodwood Sprint in 2018 and has been so sparingly used that it would make for an excellent basis for entry into the excellent HRDC series. This is certainly the prettiest and best presented A35 we have seen in a long time and is sure to bring a huge amount of joy to the lucky new owner.
