Footnotes

  • Austin's reply to the Morris Minor - the A30 - was launched at 1951 Motor Show. A more cautious design than the Minor, the A30 was nevertheless Austin's first unitary construction car and the first to be powered by the famous A-Series engine. The A30's selling price undercut the Minor's by £10, thanks in part to such cost-cutting features as external door hinges, a solitary rear light, sliding windows and rear brakes operated by a single hydraulic cylinder via a mechanical linkage. A two-door model joined the four-door original in 1953, with van and estate versions following in '54. The model was updated in 1956 with a wider rear window, remote-control gearshift and the 948cc engine, becoming the A35. Saloon production ceased on the Mini's arrival in August 1959, though the A35 van would live on until 1968.

    This A35 was supplied new by R E Saunders of Walsworth Road, Hitchin, Hertfordshire to its first owner, Dr Heuzal Howard Dunmere. The A35 was Dr Dunmere's first car, which he used to take his driving test. Unfortunately, it would appear that he was not a natural driver, failing the test on numerous occasions. Eventually he gave up trying and in 1964 sold the car to the Sharpe family's museum in Essex, from which it was purchased by the current vendor in 2006. The car came with a certified recorded mileage of only 3,278, to which a further 25 have since been added making the current total 3,303. '860 CUR' has just been re-commissioned for the road and comes with the related bill for £491.98.

    Presented in generally excellent condition, this un-restored A35 four-door saloon is almost certainly the lowest mileage and most original example surviving; indeed, we are advised that the spare wheel has never been used and that tool bag has never been opened. A wonderful opportunity for the British-car collector, '860 CUR' is offered with current MoT certificate and its original logbook and service books.
