1937 Austin 12/4 SaloonReg. no. FPL 26Chassis no. H52240Engine no. 1H 52950The Twelve model was introduced in 1921, but it was only after the introduction of the six-cylinder Light Twelve, that the model was then known as the Heavy Twelve Four. After a minor facelift in 1935, the 12/4 was substantially redesigned for 1937, with all-steel bodywork incorporating a proper boot. A ‘definite advance in appearance, performance and general style’ declared The Autocar, reviewing the new Austins. This super example finished in black, presents very well, with a lovely original interior. It has been kept in a heated garage for many years and has been cherished, being used for local shows since 1984. It will require some minor recommissioning prior to use following a period of storage. It is offered with a blue V5C, an old V5, the original buff logbook and various old MOT certificates etc.Estimate: £4,000 - 6,000To be auctioned along with a fantastic selection of other vehicles on March 5th at our Showell Farm site, SN15 2NU.
