31928 Austin 16/6 Burnham SaloonReg. no. BF 4320Chassis no. 3493L6Engine no. 4114L6The Austin 16/6 was launched in 1927, bridging the gap in Austin’s range between the 12/4 and the 20 and giving the company an entry into the expanding six-cylinder market. The side-valve 2249cc engine was a smooth unit, the crankshaft running in no fewer than eight main bearings. A conservative 36bhp was claimed and was transmitted through a four-speed gearbox. This example was exported to Australia when new, and then imported back into the UK in 2007. For the past seven years the car has been in private hands and used across the South for various vintage car events, proving to be a reliable runner. We are told that everything works as it should, with an occasional starter jam. It is offered with a file of papers, a V5C and various handbooks.Estimate: £10,000 - 12,000To be auctioned along with a fantastic selection of other vehicles on July 1st at our Showell Farm site, SN15 2NU with viewing on the 29th and 30th of June, you can also join us at our Nostalgia Social cars & coffee event on June 25th.
