Welcome

The A40 Farina Club was founded by Cynthia Hiller in the autumn of 1979 to assist owners of the models to keep their cars on the road, although the Club also warmly welcomes non-owners as well.

We have nearly 370 members (mainly in the UK, but others are scattered around the world).

Annual subscription is only £17.50. There is a one-off fee of £10, ( that goes towards funding our spares service ) and for re-joining/lapsed members.

Technical advice is always available, spares are advertised in the quarterly magazine Farina News and our spares co-ordinator helps Club members source parts and panels while our car sales co-ordinator acts as intermediary between those selling an A40 and those wishing to buy one. New repair panels and sills are currently being produced.

Although there are quite a few concours vehicles and some specially prepared, very quick racing/rallying cars, the majority are "everyday cars" and indeed any A40 in any condition is always warmly welcomed into the Club.

We organize informal gatherings during the year :-

                      SPARES SERVICE

                     ( as of Feb 2018 )

The club spares project has now been running for seven years and has proved to be very popular with our members. Over the years, and with their enthusiastic support, we have now sourced and manufactured an extensive amount of stock. We are now probably the largest supplier of A40 Farina parts ( in the world !! ) and, with virtually no overheads, are usually the least expensive. We also supply reconditioned parts, (on an exchange basis), and are constantly researching additional spares re-manufacturing projects. We send to both the UK and overseas destinations almost daily.

Although we only sell to members, the club’s low annual subscriptions make joining a worthwhile investment. It is no coincidence that club membership has increased steadily during recent years. Parts and initial joining fees can be paid for by credit/debit card.

We hold such a large selection of parts that it’s impossible to list all here but below is a list of our more popular items:
