The Images below show some of the mechanical components from the car and are included for those interested in originality.
This image shows the cardboard label that is attatched to the rear brake backing plate in the same place on both sides. Any ideas on what ( if anything ) was printed on it?
Front brakes showing little sign of wear to the linings having only travelled about 4000 miles from new!
An Original Armstrong shock. The other front and both back are painted black. There are a number of new components fitted to the front right suspension of this car. Some still have Austin part numbers painted on them. So perhaps the main impact that destroyed this car in 1956 was to the front right?
