Austin - Austin 2200

The Austin 2200 was the 6 cylinder 2227cc engine version of the Austin 1800, which was produced between the years 1972 and 1975. This 6 cylinder engine was said to be the 4 cylinder Maxi engine with two cylinders added on to it. And although it was a 6 cylinder engine, it was still mounted transversley in the Austin 2200. This was the first time that a 6 cylinder engine was fitted transversley in a front wheel drive car. BMC rolled out variations of this Austin 2200 with the Morris 2200 and the Wolseley 6. After 1975 these cars (both the 1800 and 2200) were evolved into the Princess.

Austin 2200 tyre size was originally 165R14. This was the same tyre size as the 4 cylinder version. Blockley produces a superb steel belt construction good speed rated period correct 165HR14 tyre size. See full details below:
