Austin A40 Sports - Suppliers around UK

Sometimes one tends to forget about one crucial thing: Even in the 1950s a car was not just a product of one company, but relied on many suppliers big and small to build parts for the finished product.  When I worked on my car and found all their badges hiding somewhere I got a glimpse of how many people were involved in the finished car rolling of the production line.

Interestingly many of these companies were located in the Birmingham area, so parts back then won't need to encircle the globe before filal fitting.
