1933 Austin 10 Saloon
No Reserve

Registration No: DK 8608
Chassis No: 15305
MOT: Exempt

Current family ownership since 1969
Extensively restored by the late Michael Waterhouse from 1969 - 1985
Well maintained and used for local runs until recently
Bridging the gap between the Longbridge based manufacturer's renowned 7hp and 12hp models, the Austin 10hp was launched in 1932. Topping the sales charts throughout the 1930s, the newcomer was based around a sturdy ladder frame chassis equipped with all-round semi-elliptic leaf-sprung suspension and cable-operated four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by an 1125cc sidevalve four-cylinder engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, it was reputedly capable of 55mph and 35mpg. Available with a range of open and closed pressed-steel body styles (all of which located occupants between the axles) the model was subject to continual development. Visually distinguished by their chrome radiator surrounds, the first series cars remained in production from April 1932 and August 1934. Arguably better appointed than their successors and possessed of a more vintage feel, they have developed a loyal following.

Somewhat forlorn by the time it entered the current family ownership during the late 1960s, ‘DK 8608’ took the vendor’s father some sixteen years to restore. Still presentable some forty decades later, the Austin is thought to pleasingly retain its original Dark Blue leather upholstery. Part of a significant private collection, the 10hp was a firm favourite being used by the vendor’s mother to pop to the shops most weekends until her passing. Recently treated to a new battery, the four-seater is said to ‘run sweetly’. Rated by the vendor as being in ‘very good overall’ condition with regards to its bodywork, paintwork, engine, gearbox, electrical equipment and interior trim, ‘DK 8608’ is only coming to market due to a loss of storage. The little Austin will be much missed!
