1960 Austin A40 Farina for sale in our Chicago Showroom. This Austin A 40 is in great shape with solid rocker panels and floor boards. The current owner drove this car in, a 1.5 hour trip, with no issues, and mainly uses it on weekends. The red paint is in nice shape and the black vinyl interior is neat and clean. This 60 Austin has no options, and only came with a heater, washer wipers, has a manual choke and a vintage Stewart Warner temperature gauge. It does have a spare tire, sun visors, side mirror , and rearview mirror. It was a very small estate car with a horizontally split rear opening having a top-hinged upper door and bottom-hinged lower door. October 1959 also saw the standardization on both cars of self-cancelling indicators and the provision of a centre interior light and, in early summer 1960, a flat lid was added over the spare wheel in the rear luggage compartment. At launch the car shared the 948 cc A-Series straight-4 used in other Austins including its A35 predecessor. Apparently this Austin got 33-38 MPG back when it was road tested in late 1959. The suspension of this Farina was independent at the front using coil springs with a live axle and semi elliptic leaf springs at the rear. The drum brakes were a hybrid (hydromech) arrangement, hydraulically operated at the front but cable actuated at the rear. The front drums at 8 in (200 mm) were slightly larger than the 7 in (180 mm) rears. Cam and peg steering was fitted. Individual seats were fitted in the front, with a bench at the rear that could fold down to increase luggage capacity. The trim material was a vinyl treated fabric. Options included a heater, radio, windscreen washers and white wall tires. The gear change lever was floor mounted and the handbrake between the seats. The door windows were not opened by conventional winders but pulled up and down using finger grips, a window lock position was on the door handle. The Austin A40 Farina was a compact car introduced by the British Motor Corporation in 1958. Located in our Chicagoland Showroom, which can be reached at 708 444 4488.
