Available in standard and long wheelbase with a choice of Chalfont, Hertford, Westminster or York coachwork, the 1935 Austin six cylinder 16hp and 18hp models were a favourite of private hire firms after the war due to being roomy, reliable and easy to maintain.

This York is a Six-Light, with wide doors, large windows and separate front seats. The suspension is fitted with semi-elliptic springs and the motor car is equipped with four wheel brakes and sits on its original wire wheels.

The Austin has survived well; we are informed that it was the subject of a body-off restoration, an engine rebuild and a partial re-trim, which included a new headlining and leather upholstery. Approximately 2000 miles have been covered since the work was carried out and we are told by the current custodian that it remains in good, usable condition. The V5C registration certificate is supplied.
