AUSTIN 12

Saloon.

Introduced a week before the war and very few made before 1945. Looks like an enlarged '39/47 Ten with the new grille and alligator bonnet, but has a conventional X-braced frame (less rustprone) and looks better. Mechanical brakes, of course, but even in '40 approved extras included radio, heater and demister. Early ones likely to be better finished than the post-war article.
