1964 Austin A35 Van 2,597 (Not Warranted) £6,400 + buyers premium


On the Surface: This 1964 Austin A35 Van, affectionately named ‘Noddy’ by its previous owners, boasts a charming Spruce Green finis. The van exudes originality, maintaining an authentic escque condition that captures the essence of its era.

Maintenance: The rear of the van accommodates an array of spare parts, including the original driver’s seat, replaced to accommodate a more comfortable alternative chosen by The Vendor.

History: Accompanying the charm of ‘Noddy’ is a comprehensive history file that tells the tale of its care over the years. The documentation includes a series of MOT certificates spanning from 1989 to 2005, providing an insight into the vehicle’s roadworthiness during that period. Additionally, the file holds old tax discs, a magazine cutout featuring a previous owner with this A35, and a valuable Austin A35 Lubrication Chart.

The Model: Introduced in 1956, the Austin A35 replaced the popular A30, showcasing advancements in power and design. Powered by a robust 34 hp A-Series inline-four engine, it boasted improved performance, including a higher top speed and better acceleration. The A35 retained the iconic aesthetic of its predecessor but featured a larger rear window aperture and a painted front grille with a chrome horse-shoe surround. Noteworthy changes included the replacement of semaphore turn-signal indicators with modern flashing lights.

Sale Insight: We are delighted to offer this unique opportunity to own a rare Austin A35 Van. ‘Noddy’ beckons enthusiasts and collectors alike. Its Spruce Green exterior, provenance, and history file make it a standout. The inclusion of spare parts and the original driver’s seat adds practical value, while the overall condition reflects the dedication to keeping its authenticity. This A35, though a mere conversion, stands as a rare example, ready to continue its journey with a new custodian.
