This stunning Austin A35 Van was first registered on the 18th August 1961. This is the first Austin Van we have owned in over ten years and it has spent the past five years as part of a fifteen car plus collection in Lincolnshire. 696 UKX has comes to us on the button, driving superbly, presenting in lovely condition and was driven to us faultlessly.
The last owner bought the A35 in 2011 and it had previously been in Derbyshire for four years. The V5 only records four former keepers but we do not have early history to confirm where the Van has spent most of its life. On purchase in 2011 it was checked over and work included replacing the rocker cover gasket, fitting a new fan belt, new Kevlar hoses, new rotor arm, condenser and coil, new contacts, new distributor cap, two front flexi hoses, front wheel cylinder kits, new brake shoes, a canister oil filter conversion and a new stainless steel exhaust system. Since then, the Van has been MOT tested each year and has covered around 2000 miles.
The Van has arrived in lovely condition with very smart paintwork, a strong straight bodyshell in structurally excellent order and with bright presentable chrome work. The interior is delightful with lovely carpets, seats and dashboard and the rear compartment is very clean and well presented. The engine bay appears very original and whilst is not at show level, or as fresh as the exterior, it looks well, honest and original. 696 UKX drives incredibly well as these Vans tend too. It holds the road superbly, brakes feel efficient, it handles well and the engine performs beautifully. The gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the clutch feels excellent and the overall driving experience is great fun. This is a really well presented, on the button A35 Van that can used and adored.
