1957 AUSTIN A95 SIX WESTMINSTER AUTO SALOON (power steering)
Documented low mileage car with only 40000 miles from new. Finished in mid grey with a white flash which is nicely complemented by a mid-green leather trim piped in ivory. This truly lovely car which would be perfect for a wedding vehicle has covered an incredible mileage of just 40000 miles from new (in 58 years) which is fully documented in the history folder and on the MoT certificates. This is a totally mint and original example of this marque of car which, as any Austin enthusiast will tell you, is extremely rare to find. The original registration number ULF 373 still adorns the car and this valuable number is transferable and even the original number plates are still fitted. The car resided in a dehumidified and heated storage unit from 1971-1988, a total of 17 years. It made a brief appearance before being stored again from 1992-1996 adding only very few miles during these periods. The car was purchased by its last owner in June 2010 with 35800 miles on the speedometer. A re-spray was undertaken by this keeper to bring the car up to his exacting standards. This is the only cosmetic work carried out on the car. The last owner then fitted a brake servo system to upgrade the brakes and to make it safer for today’s motoring. He also fitted ‘Otto’ electric steering to the car to make the car more pleasurable to drive. Both units are fitted discreetly and are mostly hidden and the car remains original and in perfect condition in every other way.
It has to date covered a total of just 40000 miles and is powered by a fast and reliable 6 cylinder 2699cc petrol engine with an automatic gearbox and with the benefit of power steering making it a very easy to drive classic car. The history folders includes, a history write up, images of the car, a mileage history report starting in 1957 to 2015 with year by year mileage records, previous road fund licences, current and previous V5’s, previous MoT certificates confirming the genuine mileage, MoT related paperwork, MoT document holders, HPi certificate, various invoices totalling circa £4.5k for maintenance/upkeep and upgrades, list of shows at which the car has attended, winners plaque from Museum of Transport and the Radcliff Fayre, various write ups and articles on Austin vehicles.
The motor car is fitted with the following, electric Kenlow fan, Kenlow hot start system, adjustable fuel regulator, twin horns, chrome rocker top cover, Servo brakes, wing mirrors plus one door mirror (fitted to the quarter light), Austin emblem to bonnet, full size original Austin wheel trims with Austin hub caps, side flash in white, Austin over mats, automatic gearbox, power assisted steering, bucket seats with centre arm rests, arm rest to the rear, chrome tail pipe, locking petrol cap, ashtray, inertia reel seat belts, Austin radio blank and heavy duty battery. The original tool kit, wheel brace and jack are all located in the boot along with a spare tin of paint, a spare oil filter and a bottle of engine substitute. It is a great pleasure for us to offer this amazing car. Very few A95 Westminster’s still exist without full restoration and even fewer exist with low mileage like this one. This is the best example we have ever seen and probably the best A95 Westminster in existence. What a glorious car to take to shows and of course Goodwood! £14995
