Austin 1946-71 - 2018 Market Review
Austin

Austins for decades have rated among the least costly classics available in Australia but that status is changing. UK interest in the A30 as an historic racer has rubbed off and prepped cars being sold here can make $15,000.

Cheapest of the Austins surveyed is still and quite inexplicably the 1800. These roomy, competent cars might frighten a few people due to their Hydrolastic suspension but repairs are still possible.

A40 Devon and Somerset sedans are best described as ponderous but remain popular and restored cars reach $10,000.

That money is reasonable as well for excellent examples of the scarce A50/A55 and Farina-styled A60s.

A30 $8590 [5]

A40 Devon/Somerset $6780 [7]

A50/A60 $12,995 [3]

1800 Sedan $4000 [6]
