A lovely example of an A70 Hampshire 'Woodie' built under licence by Whiteacres of Stoke-on-Trent.

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • This charming 'Woodie' has obviously been carefully restored at some point and still presents well today
  • In the 1950s, most manufacturers outsourced their estate cars to specialised coachbuilders
  • The majority of A70 estates were built by Papworths of Cambridge with 'barn doors' at the back, however, this example was finished by Whiteacres with an attractive tailgate
  • Powered by the robust 68bhp, 2199cc OHV engine from the Austin 16 with a four-speed, column change manual gearbox
  • The Hampshire Countryman and pickup continued to be sold through into 1951
  • Accompanied by a good restoration history. Nice old girl
