AUSTIN SIXTEEN

2-seater, tourer, sports coupé, fabric saloon, various saloons.

You can tell this one from a 12 by its 'Austin Six' radiator script and wire wheels. Eight-bearing engine is almost as adamantine as a 12's, but always with coil ignition. Bodies as 12, no coupés after '30, no fabric after '31. Best-looking is the '32 Westminster sports saloon (four-light) available in the range until 1936.
