AUSTIN A70 HAMPSHIRE

Saloon, station wagon.

Austin's answer to the Standard Vanguard, with the OHV Sixteen engine in an A40-type chassis with coil IFS and hydromech brakes. Four-on-the-column, poor handling, and not much more room than in a Devon. Seldom seen today, but this isn't the engine's fault... it's pretty well unburstable. Also available as pick-up.
