Lot 401937 Austin 18/6 York 7-Seater SaloonReg. no. DOM 485Chassis no. E/RZ51619Engine no. 1FE12311Transmission: ManualMOT: Exempt Estimate: £8,000 – 10,000The Austin 18 was introduced in 1937 and was supplied in two different wheelbases to carry five or seven passengers. Its engine and front seat were mounted nine inches further forward than that of its predecessor, the York Sixteen. The chassis was also extended by three inches, giving plenty more passenger space. This example appears to be very original and presents very well, having been in a heated garage for many years.It was previously sold in our last auction and described as needing a recommission after being stood for a period of time. The current vendor purchased the car, then proceeded to do exactly that. Although the bodywork remains as before, it’s in good solid condition with some imperfections, the mechanicals have been overhauled to ensure the car runs and drives reliably. It would look at home at a show or used as a working classic. It is offered with a receipt for the 1985 purchase and a copy of an old V5.To 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.
