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.

    Stunning image – it’s perfect!

  2. 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!

  3. This car has certainly a character and a personality. Your picture made me want to get in and take it for a ride.

  4. The two red pillows are just the perfect, meticulous touch to your meticulous composition.
