AUSTIN A40 SPORTS

4-seater convertible.

Semi-sports type, and non-starter in the sales stakes, despite Jensen's pretty alloy body based on their Interceptor cabriolet. In twin-carburettor form the engine gives 50bhp: hence 80mph possible. Column shift on '52s and '53s. Usual non-handling, but no parts problems.
