I cant explain it, but Ive always had a soft spot for the humble Austin A30, so we decided to finally do something about it and bought one! Before you get too concerned, dont worry Im not planning on towing our van with it...somehow I dont think the 803cc sewing machine under the bonnet would cope too well. Its a 1954 model, very original and unmolested, all it needs is a set ofwhitewall tyres. Buying something online and unseen is always a worry but we were pleasantly surprised. So even though its not a tow vechicle, we think it makes for a pretty cool addition to the garage alongside a vintage van!

Wow, paint it blue, flared guards and HD Holden running gear. Now that would be a tow car!!! I have towed the Hunter Minor and Supalite behind our Morry Minor Ute, not good if you encounter a head wind.
Hello misslulu, you should get may years of driving pleasure. If the old 803cc gives up the ghost think about a 948cc motor. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. There is a great A30 club in Melb called the Australian Austin A30 Club austina30.asn.au/index.html they are a wonderful group of people.
Thanks gypsy10 for the advice. We have recently joined that same car club and are in the process of getting the car on club rego this week. Havent been to any meetings as yet but they do seem like a great bunch! Cant wait to get it on the road and enjoy this little beauty
