A55 & A60 Cambridge 1959 to 1969

<p><span style="font-size: large;"><strong>Austin&nbsp;A55 &amp; A60 Cambridge 1959 to 1969</strong></span></p> <p>Although Austin's model designations and names started the 1960s by doubling-up, overlapping and reusing the same ones, in the same way that had made the 1950s a bit confusing, at least the looks were all new! The previous model A55 Cambridge medium saloon gained a new body, drawn up by Pininfarina, with plenty of modish fin and chrome. It was also sold as a Morris, Wolseley, MG and Riley in an effort to cover as much of the market as possible, then upgraded to the A60 in 1961 (a facelift and a bit more power).</p> <p>The standard tyre for the lifetime of the model was a 590-14 crossply (640-15 on the Countryman estate version). A suitable radial replacement for this would be a 165R14 (or a 185R14 for the Countryman, but please do check clearance on this wider tyre, and also that you have the wider wheel).</p>
