Austin A40 Cambridge
The third 'A40' was launched in 1954 to replace the A40 Somerset together with the better equipped A50 Cambridge. A new 1200cc ohv engine started the BMC B-series engine family. The A40/A50 Cambridge shared a monocoque bodyshell designed by Dick Burzi. This design was also adapted for the A90 Westminster. The A40 Cambridge was very plain compared to its A50 sibling, and even lacked wind-up windows on base models. In 1957 the Cambridge was upgraded to A55 and the A40 models were dropped.
