“Here we have an Austin dorset built in 1948 but not sold till 1950.the car spend all its life in the usa and is a left hand drive model.i have loads of history with it and as far as I can see it’s had three owners.the body and paint are in exellent condition and the chrome like new it looks as though it’s never been welded.the car is not stock either and runs an mgb 1.8 engine and back axle the gearbox is triumph with Morris marina internals.the front end has mgb disc brakes from an mgb v8.the car was built by a very reputable Austin restoration company in the USA and all the work carried out there.the interior is lovely and has air con and a heater.the wheels are tr3 15” with radial tyres.i can’t imagine the car has done more than 5000 miles since it’s full rebuild.the car drives realy well on and off the motorway and has its lever arm dampers replaced with modern shock absorbers.there is far to much to say about this car and probably only about 15 left in the uk.all in all it looks original but very very usable old car that drives great.please don’t hesitate to contact me either by phone or email as I have plenty of picturesthe car is located in paisley Scotland.”
