Austin A55 Cambridge Mk II.jpg

Austin A55 Cambridge. 1959–61 (prod. 149,994). 4-door saloon, 5-door estate. F/R, 1489 cm³ (I4 OHV). Austin version of Farina-designed saloon and estate range, twinned with Morris Oxford V and others. Marketed as larger with better visibility, though engine essentially carried over from Mk I, albeit with greater power—though still underpowered with woeful handling. Countryman estate from 1960.

Manufacturing location: Cowley, Oxfordshire, England
