History of the Austin Cambridge
The Austin Cambridge featured a big leap forward for Austin and how they produced their mid-sized cars, with them finally adopting monocoque construction with the Cambridge saloons that they built from 1954 till 1958. The A40 was the bottom of the range, using the same 1200cc engine from the A40 Somerset leaving it feeling slightly underpowered. This was compared to the next in the range, the A50 with its 1489cc 50bhp engine. The A55 featured no engine improvements but did feature a larger boot, fledgling fins and a larger rear window. Also the basis for van and pick-up forms, the Cambridge continued being produced in these latter variants up until 1971.
