1947 Austin A40 Restomod Stock: 0306-PHX Engine Size: 355 V8 Transmission Type: 3-Speed Automatic/TH400 Exterior Color Yellow Interior Color Gray Miles: 17, 469 () Location: Phoenix, AZ Vehicle Options AM/FM Radio Cassette Player Cloth Interior Front Disc Brakes Power Brakes Power Windows Seatbelts-Front Tilt Wheel Description This one is just too much fun to pass up. It only takes a quick glance to know this 1947 Austin A40 is not just some classic British economy car. The bold paint and hood scoop are just a hint at the beastly V8 power that lies underneath. This is the full custom build for someone who knows really cool things come in small packages.
The Austin A40 might have helped put England on wheels, but it's a rare sight over here today. In fact, many British car fans might be keen on seeing an A40 at their favorite car show. But don't let them get too close, or else this wild child might make them spill their Sleepy Time tea. After all, the yellow on this one is more vivid than a sunrise on the Thames, and the custom pinstriping is bolder than anything on the Union Jack. You'll love the extra attention and investment that was given to the details like the single-piece steel front end that now incorporated the bumper and frenched the headlights. Along the sides, the shaved door handles give this a sleek look. Plus, those iconic and bright Cragar SS wheels cannot hide even when masked by the rounded fenders. It all ends with some thoughtful details like the color-matched bumper, more pinstriping, and even an integrated third brake light.
The best British sport coats are made from tweed, so it seems fitting to use that for the interior. There are enjoyable features like bucket seats, power windows, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo. The details are nice with Austin's flying A logo used for the door pulls. And we love how that is also embossed into the door of the fully finished trunk (now mostly used to hold the battery box.) But as nice as this one is finished, you're really most concerned about the performance pieces after all, that's why the full VDO gauge panel takes up the whole dash. Plus, the grippy sports steering wheel on a tilt column and a Hurst Pro-Matic 2 shifter are the right performance tools to get the job done.
The interior and exterior already tell you one thing this custom is all about the engine. While everyone sees that tall air grabber poking out of the hood, that's just the tip of the performance iceberg. You can tilt the whole front section forward to reveal plenty of shining aluminum that's equal parts flair and function. This is a 355 cubic-inch V8 that's been balanced and blueprinted for performance. Plus, it has go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Ron Davis Aluminum radiator w/electric fan, Mallory distributor, and Pro Car long tube headers that feed straight out into the rumbling dual exhaust. Making sure all this power gets to the road is a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that feeds a Ford nine-inch rear end. Plus, you have a wide set of classic Pro-Trac tires on the rear. The front suspension is a beefed-up ladder bar setup with front discs, and the rear has adjustable coilovers. So this is an all-around performance build.
Here's proof that good things come in small packages. It's a one-of-a-kind that won't disappoint with the big power and the crowds it attracts in public. Call today!!!
