We have had a very busy year at Austins of Old Arley Ltd.

We started the year with an Austin 10 Cabriolet in the workshop that required a complete overhaul of the chassis, mechanics and running gear. Whilst undergoing this essential maintenance we had a new stainless steel fuel tank manufactured to the original pattern.

In April, we fitted an Austin 10 Conway with our new Crank Seal Conversion Kit. This kit has been carefully designed by us and precision manufactured, it replaces the original oil thrower to reduce oil contamination in the clutch area from the engine.

Also during the early part of the year we had another Austin 10 in the workshop for an overhaul of the chassis and mechanics. Both the brakes and hubs were fully reconditioned with new bearings and seals. A new ignition kit was fitted during an engine service and the fuel system was cleaned and new fuel pipes were fitted with a reproduction of the AC glass fuel filter. These new filters have the added bonus of a replacement paper filter.

May, saw the completion of a complete rear axle recondition on an Austin 7 Ulster and the repair to an Austin 10 that was brought in after a fire in the engine bay.

Throughout the summer an Austin 12 Harley was also requiring the chassis and running gear overhauling, including a complete recondition of the front and rear axles, including brakes and hubs, suspension bushes and steering.

The latter part of the year we have been focusing on engines and gearboxes that have been brought in for reconditioning as well as doing some minor repairs and maintenance on our workshop.

We are currently working on our website after some problems we experienced when it was migrated earlier this year. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We plan to open an internet shop where you can purchase parts directly, however this is not quite ready so in the meantime we will update the ‘parts for sale’ page with many of the new products we have sourced or had manufactured this year.  We do still have a large stock of second hand items for the Austin 10’s and the larger Austins so if there are any items that you require please don’t hesitate to give us a call or email us at or through the link on our ‘contact us’ page.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and custom and wish you all

A Very Merry Christmas
A Happy New Year

Quality restoration work for your vintage Austin
