The Austin 16 was produced between 1927 and 1937. In total 5,742 were built in various body styles during its 10 years in production.
The later cars (from 1934) have a body-coloured radiator shroud and synchromesh on 3rd and 4th gears. They were capable of 60 mph in their day. More recently used as a wedding car for over 20 years and undertaking approximately 20 - 30 outings per year along with a very similar Austin 18 / 6 York. The current owner (since 1995) is a retired garage proprietor and able to undertake the works necessary himself.
This Austin Chalfont drives very well, has just been regularly serviced and maintained as required with any works needed being attended to and the engine rebuild in 2003.
The coachwork is finished in blue over black with black wings and in good order. The underside is in good solid condition and well preserved.
Limousine style coachwork with a split partition including sliding window and two foldaway occasional seats. The rear compartment is upholstered in plush Bedford Cord and a more recent retrim in grey leather in the front driver’s compartment. In the rear compartment there is an intercom to the driver.
An opportunity to acquire a pre-war 7-seater limousine with a 6 cylinder 2,250c engine. This is an ideal robust and good value wedding hire car or spacious pre-war for three generations to enjoy.
