I don’t know anything about old cars, but I believe this is an Austin Cambridge A55 Mark II. This model was built between 1959 and 1961. The launch price was £ 802.

The car had a lovely two-tone red/gray paint. I love the two red pillows in the back of the car.

  1. I asked my brother who, is a car genius, if he knew anything about this rare little gem. This is what I got: “Earlier editions of this car, the A40 for example in 1958, were styled not in London as one would expect, but actually styled by Farina, an off-shoot of Pininfarina, a laudably famous Italian automobile firm responsible for some of the most beautiful cars out of Italy, including nearly all of Ferrari’s most iconic automobiles.” You can find his blog here: onetrakmind.wordpress.com

    Amazing what you can find out sometimes when you just ask haha! Also, it’s really amazing how art and engineering overlap so often. Thank you for posting!
