Austin - Austin 10
The Austin Ten was a four a cylinder (63.5x89) 1125 cc built from 1932, producing 21bhp. At the time it was called the Austin 10/4 and it looked like a big version of the Austin Seven Box saloon, except it had a 4 door body. Later on it had a open body and a van version option. This was Austins best selling car, being larger than the Austin Seven yet smaller (and less expensive) than the 12/6 model. The Austin 10/4 was also useful in the Austin range because Standard and Rover manufactured 10hp cars in their range. Price was what Herbert Austin knew was the key to sales in these post Wall Street crash times, and the 10/4 was priced at £168 with a sunroof option, but later this was reduced to £155, with the tourer and 2 seat with Dickey body styles costing less. The DeLuxe saloon cost an extra £20 for those who had the budget and wanted to spend more.
The Austin 10 tyre size was originally 400x19, which Blockley produces. Later models had a small 18" wheels for which Blockley produces a 450/500x18 tyre.
