  • Said to ‘all run well with everything working as it should’
  • Documents are not currently present, but the vendor hopes to find, however is still listed on DVLA system
  • Signs of filler and rust in places, with some window rubbers requiring replacement

The A35 is very similar in appearance to the A30, except for a larger rear window aperture and a painted front grille, with chrome horse-shoe surround, instead of the chrome grille on the A30. Both have 13 in (330 mm) wheels. The semaphore turn-signal indicators were replaced with modern front- and rear-mounted flashing lights. A slightly easier to operate remote-control gear-change was provided. Much of the improved performance is a result of different gearbox ratios. The A30 has the first three ratios close together then a big gap to top (fourth gear). The A35's ratios are better spaced and give a higher speed in third gear.

This Austin A35 a lucky survivor with the vendor informing us that the garage next door had a fire ruining the contents. The heat was so intense it bubbled the paint on the A35 but the car itself survived, hence the crazed look.
