AUSTIN 12/16HP

Saloon, station wagon (16HP only).

Styling is enlarged 10, but no welded floorpan on the X-braced frame to rust. Usual beam axles and rod-operated brakes, plus the bonuses of sliding roof, opening screen and leather upholstery 16 has Austin's first OHV private car engine (heresy!) and will give you 75mph and 25mpg, but acceleration is not its strong point.
