AUSTIN 18-22 SERIES

4-door 5-seater saloon.

Successor to 'Super Landcrab' 1800/2200  models, with similar front-drive layouts but Hydragas instead of Hydrolastic suspension, and distinctive wedge-nose/high-trail styling. Extremely roomy and practical, badly needing a hatchback (which came in 1982!). Short-lived as Austin (and Morris, and Wolseley), for range was renamed Princess for 1976. Recognise 1975 Austins by trapezoidal headlamps (Morris had four circular lamps). Limited production, only made for nine months with this badge.
