Hi Paul, interesting question. In 1955 Battista Farina was tasked with creating a new 'baby Austin' which would appeal to the foreign markets which BMC wanted to break into. To save money and speed up the process he used most of the established and proven mechanicals and running gear from the then current A35 and "just" put a new body on it.
I can't answer your specific questions (but I think the A40 screen rubbers are unique to the car) although I know there'll soon be my more knowledgeable colleagues on here to tell you what does and what doesn't transfer between marques.
