A very British car - the Austin 14 Featured

A very British car - the Austin 14 Austin 14, hjk/mcvth, 2020 

Long, long ago

One of the most beautiful exhibits in British automobile history was the Austin 14, built from 1937-39, which had a very powerful but quiet six-cylinder engine that produced 38 kW. The top speed was set at 110 km per hour. The car consumed a lot of petrol and was very susceptible to repairs. The body was very rusty. The clutch was quickly worn out. The entry of the United Kingdom into the Second World War ended the further production of this incredibly comfortable vehicle. 
The middle-class vehicle was available as a limousine and convertible. Nothing is known about the number of units built. 
How this vehicle came to Germany can no longer be traced. It is likely that a soldier drove this car in Germany after the war and sold it afterwards.
