Rick,
Do you (or anyone here) know what colours the commercials came in and the Austin names for these colours?
Also, we're they available in bare primer? I've listened to the video but I don't think it was mentioned.
By 1954, would They have shared with Morris colours?
Thanks, Mike.

Not sure, somewhere I have a colours leaflet for the Devon cars but I doubt it covers the commercials too. I'll have a look

Hi all, just wondering whether this vintage(?) AMAL carb might be identifiable in this short vid?

Continuing with the Talbot uploads of late, is today's short addition where I give an update on finding one of the few parts that the car is missing.

Rick;
Re the Amal, why not contact http://amalcarb.co.uk/other-amal-carbs.html

One thing I think I noticed, it seems to be a butterfly carb rather than the more usual lifting barrel and needle.

Added to the Anglia E494A page this morning, a video walkaround of a wonderful '52 Anglia complete with original bodywork, paint and trim. A proper "survivor car" if ever there was one.

I recorded and uploaded a vid this morning talking about how many is too many old cars? And thoughts I have to reduce the workload a little.
