AUSTIN LIGHT 12/4 (1937-39)

2-seater tourer, Ascot saloon, 4-door cabriolet, estate car.

Revised on the same lines as the Cambridge Ten - easy-clean wheels, forward mounted engine, adjustable steering column, bottom-hinged wipers, and so on. Old-type perpendicular open cars '37 only, cabriolets and woodies from '38. Many worked as provincial taxis; scuttle and sill rust are problems as it that mock-woodgrain facia, almost impossible to reproduce.
