GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1946 Austin 8 Six Light Saloon for purchase. The Austin 8 was the successor the big selling Austin 7 and it was produced from 1939 to 1947 with a break in there with production stopping in 1943 and restarting in 1945 (thanks a lot, Hitler). The Austin 7 was groundbreaking in Europe much like the Model T was in the United States. It was even licensed and copied by companies all over the world. The 1st BMW car was actually an Austin 7 called the BMW Dixi. Eventually technology catches up and the Austin 8 became the beautiful successor through the war years. Not many of these cars have survived, especially in the United States, making them rare collectibles today.

The Austin 8 continued the innovation with very cool features like adjustable seats, Pytchley sliding roof (featured here), roomy & comfortable interior, privacy rear shade, and a floor mounted 4-speed manual transmission that is very smooth and easy to use. This car is powered by the 900cc inline 4 cylinder engine in excellent mechanical condition. This car is a right-hand drive car imported from England and the previous did a great job restoring the car to original specifications. Recent work to the interior with new leather upholstery has the car nicely updated while still giving it the old fashioned motoring feel. This is a really rare import with a great documented history part of the Austin 8 Registry. This car even has fuel rationing stamp booklets from 1950 in England. This car is also very easy and comfortable to drive which makes this car an awesome and really unique collectible. Please call or email for more details!
