This in­cludes Austin 8,10,12,16s, Devons, Hamp­shires, Here­fords, At­lantics, A40 Sports and the Som­er­set and Austin A40 Light Com­mer­cials.

The club is run by en­thu­si­asts and is open to all with an in­ter­est in these ve­hi­cles, whether you own a ‘Coun­ties’ ve­hi­cle or not. It holds an an­nual rally at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions each year, plus monthly area meets, as well as pro­duc­ing award­win­ning stands at NEC clas­sic car events twice a year.

New & used spares

The club of­fers an ex­ten­sive range of both new re­man­u­fac­tured parts and sec­ond­hand parts for Coun­ties Austins. The ded­i­cated spares ser­vice is con­tin­u­ally look­ing into the re­man­u­fac­tur­ing of ob­so­lete parts, as well as ser­vice items to keep Austins on the road. The club holds a vast stock of new and used spares that are avail­able on a mail or­der ba­sis.
