The Austin A40 Somerset was produced by the Austin Motor Company from 1952 until 1954. The Somerset replaced the Austin A40 Devon and, as a body-on-chassis car, it was comparable in size to its predecessor. The Somerset featured an updated 'Transatlantic' body style with flowing lines, as distinct to the Devon's bulky looking body. Resembling the larger Austin A70 Hereford, its design was aimed at improving export sales, particularly to America. Initially offered as only a 4-door saloon, a 3 seater 2 door convertible, of the same body style was introduced in late 1952. The Somerset shared a number of components with the Devon which included a similar 1.2 litre four cylinder engine. The Somerset's engine was updated to produce 42 hp, compared to the Devon's 40 hp, giving the car a top speed of 70 mph. This incredibly original 1954 Austin A40 Somerset Saloon is finished in two tone grey with a grey interior. The vendor tells us that the first owner had it for 60 years from 1954 to 2014, followed by two further owners. The car has only 28,000 recorded miles since new, which the vendor says is correct. The cylinder head gasket, battery, clutch and brightwork have all been re-newed. The optional Smiths heater is working perfectly, and the car comes with service receipts, and with hand books. The vendor says that the car drives very well without fault.
