Classic Car Auctions says:

Super rare and equally as quirky, the Austin A40 Tourer....


  • Right-hand drive from new and powered by a 4-cylinder, 1200cc, 40bhp OHV engine
  • Built from CKD kits at the Austin Distributors Federation plant in Petone, New Zealand
  • One of very few examples in the UK as they were only distributed in Australia and New Zealand
  • Arrived on our shores in July 2019 and just the one owner in the UK 
  • Clearly the car was restored in its native New Zealand prior to coming to the UK
  • Looking like a grown up Dinky Toy, it seems to generate affection from all
  • On offer from a large private collection, this little Austin has plenty of love to give
