Footnotes

  • Introduced in the spring of 1932, the Austin 10hp would prove an outstanding sales success, out-selling every other Austin - including the Seven - from 1933 to 1939. Powered by a 1,125cc, 21bhp sidevalve four, the 'Ten' delivered 50mph-plus performance while its fuel consumption bettered 30 miles per gallon. The four-speed gearbox was equipped with synchromesh for 1934, 12-volt electrics being standardised at the same time, and for the following season the model was subtly restyled, gaining a painted radiator shell and projecting boot. After this minor facelift the model was substantially redesigned for 1937, emerging with all-steel bodywork featuring a proper boot, as well as Girling brakes. A 'definite advance in appearance, performance and general style' declared The Autocar. Top speed under favourable conditions was found to be 60mph, with fuel consumption in the 28-34mpg range.
    We are advised that this 10hp Cambridge was restored to a good standard in the 1980s by a local (Devon) restorer. Last used in 2005 and kept in dry storage since then, 'CPO 700' is described by the vendor as in generally good condition with 'fair' paintwork. The car is finished in black/grey with blue leather interior and offered with Swansea V5.
