Austin - Austin Cambridge

The Austin Cambridge name covered many models of cars built between 1954 and 1969. All Austin Cambridge models had 4 cylinder engines fitted, and these cover the range of Austin A40 , Austin A50 , Austin A55  (Mark 1 and 2) and Austin A60. All the Austin Cambridge models had the monocoque chassis construction from the begining. For 1954 the Austin Cambridge was a 4 door based on a the 1200cc Austin A40 or the Austin A50 (1.5 litre) which was a much more popular car. In 1957 both the A40 and A50 were replaced with the A55 Cambridge which was mechanically similar but now fitted with smaller 13 inch wheels to make up for the taller roof but in 1959 the car had a massive make over, and now called A55 Cambridge Mk2 with a new body styled by Farina ( with increased wheel diameter to 14"), which was pretty much the same vehicle as the Morris Oxford. The A55 was replaced by the next Austin Cambridge, the 1622 cc A60 Cambridge at the end of 1961, the A60 having a longer wheelbase and a wider track. The Austin Cambridge continued in production at Cowley, being gradually updated until 1969.
