Up for sale is a 1931 American Austin Roadster project car. It was last registered in the mid 1950’s and has spent the last 50 years in a barn. Although this car is weathered and incomplete, it is a great opportunity to buy a decent project. The seller originally intended to get the car running in as is condition and enjoy it, but his plans changed. The engine turns and the car rolls. The correct gauges are missing as are some other parts. The seats are missing, however, they are reproduced. The windshield should be replaced, but it is also available through the aftermarket.
If you’ve been looking to restore a roadster, this is a prime opportunity.
This car has been sold.
