AUSTIN 10/4

2-seater, tourer, saloon, cabriolet.

Best-seller introduced May '32, with three-bearing 21bhp engine, a compact 93ins wheelbase, four-speed 'box, and 12/6's mechanical pump feed. Originally only sold as a saloon; open cars and German-style cabriolets arrive '33. '33 cars with plated hubcaps; synchromesh, X-braced frames, and 12-volt electrics for 1934. All factory-bodied cars should have black wings: Sir Herbert was adamant on this point, and this applied to every pre-1938 model.
