AUSTIN 14/6

Goodwood saloon, 4-door cabriolet, estate car.

Handsomest of the restyled '37 Austins: the longer bonnet helps and by this time they'd got the bugs out of the basically-12/6 engine. Usual rust problems, and even with the 1938's ali head it lacks the performance of rival Morrises and Vauxhalls... 70mph is hard work. Cabriolets and estate cars from '38 by which time you could have coloured wings on most cars.
