Description:

1972 Austin FX4

Here is a chance to own a true classic. There are not many of these in the US. This one was brought here in 1998. I have tons of paper work that traced it's journey here and how it's been kept here since arriving. Since I've had it I cleaned it top to bottom. I've rebuilt or replaced nearly everything in the braking system. It has 2 new Optima batteries that start the diesel engine quickly. Upon start up it will smoke a little until it warms up. About 3 minutes. Gear shifts are crisp and clean. It's meant for city driving so 45 to 50 mph is about all you'll get out of it. Trans is kinda noisy above that. I had the seats recovered. All but the two jump seats which were in great shape. Paint is a 20-footer. Great shine but a few flaws. Very, very little rust. No holes just some cracking on a door. I've seen a couple of these on ebay for sell but the reserve was never met. I have the reserve on this one really low.
