AUSTIN 18

Saloon, limousine.

The old four-bearing 21/2-litre brought into line with smaller Austins - that means Marles steering, umbrella-handle handbrake and pressed-steel 16ins wheels. The Norfolk on a 1121/2ins wheelbase is a roomy five-seater: 123ins Windsors and Ivers are tailor-made for wedding hire. Performance no better than a perpendicular car's: appearance and handling are far inferior.
