2021 Market Review - Austin 1922-1971

Look back a century and you find Austins that two people could carry away yet today cost more than a V8 Jaguar.

The Austin Seven is quirky and lots have survived yet they still generate big money. Less expensive but similar in concept are 8/10 models from the 1930s and A30/A35s from the 1950s. Both are getting dearer but good ones can still be found below $10.000.

The A40 Devon was once Australia’s best-selling car, so they survive in decent numbers and very good sedans cost less than $8000. Still inexplicably cheap at $4000-6000 are Austin 1800s but not so the elegant Princess limousine.Most of these are recent imports destined for the wedding car market and priced above $40,000.

Seven 1922-33 $22,960 [6]
