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 21bhp sidevalve four, the Ten delivered 50mph-plus performance while bettering 30 miles per gallon. The four-speed gearbox was equipped with synchromesh for 1934 while 12-volt electrics were standardised at the same time. The model was updated for 1935 much in the manner of other Austins, gaining a cowled radiator and projecting boot.

    An older restoration with tidy, re-trimmed interior, this example was purchased by the current vendor from the Classic & Sportscar Centre of West Knapton, Yorkshire in December 2010 having covered over 3,000 miles in the preceding seven years. The car was described as a 'lovely driver with engine holding very good oil pressure', running well with 'impressive performance, pulling nicely through all four gears' and happily cruising at 35mph 'with no problems'. It appeared to be in very good mechanical order with 'no brake, handling or steering issues' and according to the current vendor is in similarly good condition today. Regularly used since acquisition, it benefits from partial rewiring undertaken in March 2013 by Britannia Motors. The car is offered with MoT to March 2014 and Swansea V5 document.
