AUSTIN 20 HP SHORT

7-seater tourer, 4-light saloon, 6-light saloon, landaulette.

As for long 20, but with 130ins wheelbase, improvements the same up to '32. Landaulette (open drive Marlborough!) and tourer dropped at end of '31, and 4-light saloon (fabric top, rear trunk) only offered that year, leaving 6-light as sole, rare survivor at the end. Uncommon, but for owner drivers the (possibly even rarer) later Whitehall model is preferable.
