History of the Austin A40 Farina

An important model built 1958-1967 for Austin though perhaps not apparently so based on appearances. It was the first Pininfarina (the prestigious Italian designers) styled car for BMC, as well as being the first "two-box" design plus with its Countryman Estate version it was also among the very first hatchbacks. The initial 1958 was very strongly based on the Austin A35 despite its Pininfarina styling, even keeping the A35's hydro-mechanical brakes which wouldn't be changed to proper hydraulic brakes until the 1961 Mark II model. The 1962 upgraded would feature a larger 1098cc A-Series engine slotted in instead of the usual 948cc
