None of these were A 30s. These were the later generation of mid 50s Austins which ran from the A40 replacement for the Somerset ( 1200cc) which only lasted a year and morphed into the A50 ( 1489cc) to A90 ( 2639cc) . They were all competent cars, and I think the 80mph one was a flat out A50 .
Yes. If you look at the complete video the commentator clearly states @ 0:42 that it's an Austin A50. The 80mph interior shot @ 4:07 is the same car. Also one of the others is an A35 not an A30 (@1:25 in the vid). Both of these facts are also mentioned in the wording below the clip.
