Ex-James Hull Austin for sale

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - CONTENTS -

An 11,000-mile 1982 Austin Am­bas­sador, for­merly of the James Hull col­lec­tion that Brightwells sold on be­half of Jaguar Land Rover Clas­sic back in March, is up for sale in the CCW clas­si­fieds.

Owner, Josh Wills, of JW Mini Ser­vices, says that he at­tended the Bices­ter sale in­tend­ing to buy a dif­fer­ent car al­to­gether, but ended up com­ing home with the rare non-run­ner in­stead. He said: ‘I’d al­ways fancied an Am­bas­sador, but it needs to go into an­other col­lec­tion now.

‘It was easy enough to get go­ing again; I drained out the old fuel, re­placed the cam­belt, fit­ted a new bat­tery and re­placed the rear wheel cylin­ders.’

Rare Am­bas­sador is now a run­ner, but is now look­ing for a new home to go to.
