Austin 1922-71

Very soon Britain’s most prolific economy model will celebrate its 100th birthday and roads everywhere will still be cluttered with surviving Austin Sevens.

Such is the ‘Baby’ Austin’s appeal that top-quality cars still bring more than an early and more practical Mini.

Later-model Austins cost way less and anybody who can lay hands on $5000 can take their pick of some interesting cars including the A30 and A40 – once Australia’s best-selling car – the A50-A60 Cambridge and of course the radical (in its day) and roomy 1800. Big Austin Princess and A135 limousines didn’t sell here when new, however enough have been imported to keep wedding hirers well supplied.

Seven 1922-33 $15,290 [7] 

A30/A35  $5965 [12]

A40 Devon/Somerset $5245 [9] 

A50-A60 $4125 [4]

1800 Sedan $5550 [10] 

Princess Limo 1954-63 $30,125 [4]
