And now for something completely different, that's guaranteed to render anybody's granny completely speechless - in short, a 4.6-litre V8-engine Austin A35! Lovingly built in Belgium to its current drag racing specification by a friend of the vendor but, as yet, never used in anger, the 'Gasser' is painted in a striking shade of Purple and the interior finished in a pleasing mix of body colour, chequer-plate and Black leather. The impressive mechanical specification includes the following: the aforementioned Ford Mustang engine coupled to a two-speed B&M quick shift/line lock semi-automatic transmission; Ford 9.25 locker differential with cut down axle, built by the renowned Andy Robinson; Ford Transit vented disc brake system up front and Ford drum units at the rear and full roll cage. The vendor regards the Austin's bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, V8 engine and transmission as all being in 'excellent' condition. Though he's trailered it to shows and events he feels it is time for somebody to enjoy the car to its full potential, so is now offering 'Little Rascal II' complete with a lever arch file crammed with drawings, plans, specifications and receipts from the build of this one-off classic, that inevitably ran into thousands of pounds.
