as you can imagine finding spares for such an old car isn't going to be easy
and its going to be a case of finding used parts form here and there

thy this site as they show an austin 16 chassis in the classifieds for a start

and here

and this firm may be able to help as they have a nice example

I'm afraid thats not how the site works,

I've provided the information of where to look to help you with your problem and we're here to help solve technical issues mainly ie. ( whats the procedure for changing a cam belt)

its up to you to follow up on the information I've provided

plus you know what parts you need, how much you're prepared to pay and when you want them for

sounds like an interesting project - good luck
