Late night Ebay finds:

There is someone in Wyoming who may have stumbled on a small parts hoard.  So far, the ebay seller has three items up, however that doesn’t mean more wont show up.  It appears that his stash may contain Bantam and Austin pieces.

New Listing: The perfect souvenir from this years meet, an American Austin Coupe

With a little work, this little gem could be exactly the type of car you have been hoping for. Originally restored by the owner’s father in the 60’s, he started detailing it in the 1970’s but did not finish. The car has sat in this condition for the past few decades but was running not too long ago. The current owner believes there may be an issue with the clutch and also thinks all of the parts will come with the car. The seller has cherished his father’s car for decades and wants to make sure it gets into the right hands.

Although this is listed as a project, it looks like a solid car that just needs a little TLC to be a runnable car. I would be tempted to enjoy it without the canvas installed to enjoy a sun roof.

The car is located in Copper Canyon, Texas and the seller is asking $8000.

A nifty vintage photo:

The little American Austins and Bantams seem to have been very photogenic cars.  A remarkable number of photos exist in consideration of the relative few cars that were actually built.  Today, a vintage photo came onto ebay featuring an American Austin coupe and a Chris Craft boat.  The seller makes it look as though it may be the beginning of a romance, however, who knows the true story.  Besides the potential story that may surround the photo, I’m curious about whether other cars were allowed on the docks at the time, or if the Austin was a special exception.

Here are a couple photos:
