The first prototype, the FX had a 1. 8-litre sidevalve engine that proved inadequate for the job. The second prototype, the FX2 had a 1. 8-litre petrol engine, but this was replaced by the third version, the FX3, which had a 2. 2-litre ohv petrol engine also used in the Austin Atlantic and Healey 100/ 4. Fitted with an all-steel body from Carbodies, the FX3 was registered as JXN 842, and it and the FX2 (registered as JXN 841) went on test in the summer of 1948. It was announced at the Commercial Motor Exhibition in the following November and went into full production in 1949.
A hire car version, the FL1, was also made, which had four full doors, a bench front seat, column gear-change and an umbrella-type handbrake handle. The two occasional seats faced forward. A 'driveaway' chassis-cab was also supplied to outside coachbuilders. Several shooting brake ('Woodie') bodies were made, as well as newspaper vans for the three London evening papers, the Star, News and Standard.
Built in 1955, this FL1 was professionally restored and converted to a Shooting Car, by specialist trimmer Northumbrian Leather of Newcastle on Tyne. The car has received a full restoration and a period of recent recommissioning in our workshops.
The 4-cylinder Austin 2. 2 litre is based on the Austin Atlantic and was also used in the Healey 100/ 4. The engine is in very good condition following servicing in our workshops.
As part of the restoration in the style of an Estate/ Shooting Car, the interior was fully re-trimmed in Ostrich skin and Buffalo hide, with contrasting tartan. It has a fitted trunk and full-length sunroof.
The car is in excellent restored condition, with a unique interior and the benefit of a sunroof. It would make an ideal vehicle for Estate use, a promotional vehicle or a town car, especially if you live in London for a trip down to Goodwood.
