1965 Austin A40 Period Race Car

Looking for new owner and driver after 8 years of fun !!

£39,995.00 (Sold)

  • Model: 1293cc
  • Variant: Race Car
  • Doors: 2
  • Year: 1965
  • Colour: Black
  • Reg No.: CDL843C

I have owned this car 8 years and raced with success in the Masters series " Oldies but Goldies " and with the current Touring greats series run by Julius Thurgood in the " HRDC "†

I ran last weekend at brands and was doing 1 min 2.62 second laps , in the A series challenge came 4th over all . With more races under the belt and a capable driver I am sure a couple more seconds could be found .†

I rebuilt the car on an acid dipped lightened shell 3 years ago and got the weight down to 740 kgs with a full tank of fuel .†

Engine was built originally by MED and has omega pistons , steel crank , hot cam and cooper 13 stud head , rebuilt every year and last dyno report 2 meetings ago was 125bhp . Jon Lee at Lynx has dynoed the car every year for me .†

The last engine and gearbox rebuild was by Mark Daniel whose A40 runs 1 minute runs at Donnington†

It has a dog box with 2 meetings under its belt a spare is included ( needing refresh )†

LSD rebuilt 2 meetings ago†

Larrence half shafts†

twin bearing axle ends imported from the states .†

Hardened and treated wheels†

Dunlop 4.50 L tyres†

New harness†

Ally rad†

Ally catch tank†

Ally fuel tank†

Facet racing pump .†

perspex glass†

Adjustable lever arm rear dampers†

Stiff anti roll bar†

racing springs and coils†

Everything is up to spec with current regulations†

The list is endless to build a car to this spec would cost £50k plus I have invested over that in the car and thoroughly enjoyed racing it . I have new toys to play with and this potential front runner needs an enthusiastic new driver to keep it at the front . I can pass on all necessary contacts for race prep and parts to assist with your new venture . I will also remain on the scene in my Healey Jamaican and soon to be finished Galaxie fastback and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have .†

Any questions 07957 338503 call Matt , will look at lower value trade ins , defenders and classic cars ideally
