We defy you to look at an Austin A35 and not break into a smile. They manage to combine period charm with real world running gear and make great everyday starter classics. They can be enjoyed as they are or uprated for some fast road fun.  

A little-known fact; the always popular Austin A35s were raced by Graham Hill in 1958 as part of his award-winning team. If it was good enough for him… 


Launched in September 1956, the Austin A35 replaced the very successful A30. The new A35 was the most rapid car in its class, by a significant margin. 

The bodywork and the 13” wheels stayed largely the same. The principal alterations were a larger rear window, a painted front grille with chrome surround and the abandonment of semaphore turn-signal indicators; they were replaced with modern front and rear mounted flashing lights. 

The Austin A35 came as a 2 or 4 door. The most popular being the 2-door model, like this one.

This particular example has had a full refurb – here are some of the highlights. 

  • All body areas treated  
  • New panels welded as needed 
  • One new sill 
  • Body fully prepared and resprayed 
  • Most parts re-chromed 
  • New polished stainless-steel front and rear bumpers 


Open the driver’s door and you’ll find an interior packed with original elements, all in exceptional condition. The original steering wheel is in place along with period knobs, buttons and switches. The central instrumentation cluster is dominated by the super Smiths speedo. The original gear lever is also in-situ. 

The interior didn’t escape the restorer’s attention. 

  • New sound deadening 
  • New underlay 
  • New carpeting throughout 
  • Original seat frame repaired 
  • New cushioning and upholstery fitted 
  • All new rubbers and seals 

Upgrades include 

  • LED interior lighting on a buzzer warning system 
  • Two new gauges fitted 

It is not common to see an Austin A35 have this much time and money lavished on it. The blend of new and period has been completed well. 


Austin A35s provide a supple, compliant, quality ride. Handling and road-holding characteristics are actually very good, considering their age. An additional bonus is the frugal fuel consumption. Above and beyond all that, they are fun! This one has had the engine, gearbox, brakes and electrics all overhauled.

Guide Prices?

We’re different. But you know that. And we’re always honest. In a sector where no two classics are same, how does anyone put a ‘guide’.

Well, everyone knows the broad value of classic, let’s all be honest. So we don’t need to tell you what you already know, do we.

The ‘market’ decides and the old cliché that ‘it’s worth what someone wants to pay’ is no less true. So why kid everyone!

But, because we are different, if it really does matter to you, that’s fine, we want you to be happy. Just drop us a line at auction@evoke-classics.com and one of us will be delighted to ring you back and discuss, it’s what we do.

Tedious but it’s vital you read this, please.

We will always strive to offer the most descriptive and transparent auction listings available. However, we can’t claim to be perfect. Your own analysis is very important and we are here to help and also answer any and all queries you may have prior to purchase.

We offer and positively encourage buyers to view, or arrange inspections for each vehicle thoroughly prior to bidding.

If we do take a physical, as opposed to a remote, look at any of the vehicles on our platform, they are not those of a qualified vehicle inspector or other professional. Nor do they include a test drive unless expressly stated.

As with all vehicles of a certain age, localised paint repairs are common. This specifically applies with classics.

So, please, unless we state explicitly to the contrary, please assume that classic vehicles on our platform could have had remedial bodywork of any kind at some point in its life.

Two final comments on images and photos.

The vast majority are supplied by vendors. Camera technology has and continues to improve significantly, but please note and understand that image and sound quality does vary. If you would like vendors to provide more images please ask us and we will contact the vendor for you.

If you are at all unsure, just ask us. It is what we are here for.

Finally, finally, finally. Please note that vehicles are sold as seen and a returns policy is not applicable. This is the norm for used items acquired at auction.

Our Terms and Conditions are here and our FAQS can be found here or contact us: auction@evoke-classics.com
