“BEATRIX' Austin A35

RALLY TEC’s own classic car

This is “BEATRIX” our Austin A35. She has a 948cc engine producing 34 BHP.  She was made at the Austin Longbridge plant in Birmingham in 1958. When new she cost £583 and Road Tax was £12 10s 0d.  This 2 door Saloon was first registered 13 February 1958.  The Austin A35 can easily fit in the most compact of garages being only 11ft 4in (345cm) long and 4ft 7in (140cm) wide.

We have to confess she is not quite standard as she has a SU carburettor instead of the original Solex.  MG Midget front disk brakes and a brake servo is also not an original fitment but at least they give us a sporting chance in modern traffic.

At the end of the 2016 session, a significant number of repairs were undertaken, including new seat padding, carpets, servicing of the brakes and full testing and repair of the electrical system.  Unfortunately we discovered that at some time in the past some dubious ‘repairs’ had been made using just body filler, so this was cut out and good metal welded in its place.

RALLY TEC attend a number of classic car shows throughout the season, so we look forward to seeing you at a car show soon!
