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. 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
