Step back in time and immerse yourself in the nostalgic allure of classic British motoring with this 1968 Austin 1100, offered for sale at our showroom on behalf of the owner.

The 1100 was the first front-driver to become Britain’s best-selling car, which it did for an astonishing seven years. The Mini was the ground breaker, but had the 1100 not been such a runaway success, who’s to say that transverse FWD wouldn’t have been regarded as a quirk, rather than the industry standard it is today?

The 1100 looks much like any other early Sixties saloon, but while the car’s basic shape was laid out by Alec Issigonis, Pininfarina was brought in on a consultancy basis, with most of its input going into the handsome front end.

Lovingly maintained to retain its original splendour, this 1968 Austin 1100 boasts a good exterior and a well cared for intereior. Notorious for rotting, this 1100 has managed to stand the test, albeit with the odd small blemish in the usual places.

Smooth Performance: Powered by a reliable engine and paired with a responsive transmission, the Austin 1100 delivers a driving experience that’s as enjoyable today as it was decades ago. It will never set the world alight but it will through you back to years gone by.

Whether you’re a seasoned collector seeking to expand your portfolio or an enthusiast looking to experience the nostalgia of classic motoring, don’t let this chance to own a piece of automotive history pass you by. Contact us today to schedule a viewing at our premises near Exeter!
