AUSTIN TWELVE

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

Indestructible old five-bearing flathead (born 1921) giving 27bhp at 2000rpm, still with magneto ignition, transmission handbrake, and artillery wheels, but now with ribbon radiator shell, chromium plate and ball change for the four-speed 'box. Saloons re-styled for '31, no fabric bodies in '32 range, which latter will probably have wire wheels, though artilleries still available. Very vintage to drive.
