Auctioneers notes: What a pleasure to have the opportunity to offer this car for sale by Auction in our Autumn Classic – she is a most delightful example – These A40 Sports were designed and manufactured in conjunction with Jensen Motors who made the all aluminium bodies, about 4000 were made. I have spoken to Tony, an A40 Sports expert in the Austin Counties Car Club and he says there are less than 20, as far as he is aware, still surviving.
Past history is very short but there is a plack in the file which says “over a 5 year extensive restoration was carried out from 1988 – 1993 by the owner who was the proprietor of LJ Cox & Metal Fabrication, with the help of D Maton of Salisbury, Wilts” She also comes with a current Spare Parts Catalogue and a good number of Austin Counties Car Club Magazines.She was brought back from abroad in 1993 and has had 3 registered keepers. The car has a current V5 C and an older V5 . May be viewed strictly by appointment.
