Description of 1971 Austin America

Rare 1971 Austin AMERICA. This car is made by British Leyland of Birmingham England. You never see these, ut they weremade from 1968 to 1972for export to the United States only. They manufactured approximately 55,500 only to try to compete with the Volkswagon Beetle. There probably are very few left. This one is mostly original, ut the paint has been touched up. It's a running, riving car, ut not a show car. If you are into these cars, his one would be worth restoring. It's very solid, nd not all beat up. It has 76,136 actual miles on the odometer, nd has a clear title. The wheels and hub caps are all original, nd even has a matching spare rim, lthough the tire won't hold air. The tires on the car are not good either, ut do hold air and have half the tread left. The floor boards are not rusted out. There is flaking rust on the underside, ut it just needs sand blasted off. There is minor rust in the trunk. This is a front wheel drive, our cylinder car. This one has the rare automatic 3 speed transmission. It seems to shift well. I've only driven it a few miles. I just bought it for resale, s I know it's a rare car. The interior is in very decent condition, ut the drivers seat has some rips in the seat part. Also the rubber part of the gas pedal is missing, nd has a pair of vise grips clamped to the rod. It works the throttle well, ut looks bad. I found this car stored in a garage, nd the owner said it had been in there 20 years. It preserved the car well, ut he left the gas in it, nd mixed new gas with the old to show me it ran. So the tank needs drained. It starts ok, ut you can smell the old gas when running. It takes awhile to run correctly (cold blooded), ut I think it's the old gas. And lastly, he ignition sometimes doesn't want to start the car. They do sell new ignition switches, nd it's easy to change, ut I use a screwdriver on the back of the ignition to jump a couple wires when it won't turn over. I'll pay for a new ignition if the car sells for my low reserve price. All lights and turn signals work well. This is a very restorable car. It's not for me, ut if you collect British cars, t may be for you. As for payment, do NOT use paypal. I accept cash, ank cashiers check, r wire transfer. I can have the car shipped anywhere in the United States. If you are overseas, can get it to the port of your choice. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. I buy and sell cars and classic motorcycles at least 35 years old, o let me know what you have, nd maybe we can work something out. Email with any questions, r my phone number. Thank you for looking, nd may God Bless You All. Rich
