Buying an Austin 10

I have a 1931 Austin Seven at present but old age and arthritis make it increasingly difficult for my wife and I to get a comfortable drive.
I like the Austin 12 but don't think that I could get one in and out of one in my garage so that has started me looking at early A10s. Can some kind person tell me the width of an A10 with one door open enough to get in and out
Are there any general tips that anyone can give on the points to look out for?
I am hoping to get to the National Rally in a couple of weeks time to get a better idea of Austin 10s.

Re: Buying an Austin 10

The Austin 10 has a body width of 4 foot 7 ins,the door open will be around 2 feet hope that helps,as what to look for the main thing i would look out for is the engine block make sure there is no tell tale signs of water marks which would indicator a cracked block apart from that just a general look around,good luck Ted
