1948 Austin 16 BS1 Saloon

This delightful Austin 16 was previously sold by us in January 2000. The car has spent the last nine years overseas and in this time a small fortune has been spent on improvements. The car is presented in lovely condition with a bright, shiny deep paint finish. Some chrome work has been replaced and improved over the years and now looks superb all round. The upholstery has been completely re-trimmed and is in exceptional condition.

It is also pleasing that the Austin 16 is as nice to drive as looks would suggest. The mechanical condition and general performance is excellent and on the road feels very solid and well maintained. The ride is comfortable and driving the car really is enjoyable.

Two folders of history accompany the Austin. One file holds some earlier information and is an interesting read. The oldest MOT dates back to 1968 when the car was in London with 51,030 miles recorded. The second file contains invoices for work carried out by the previous owner.

The mileage recorded is 64,200 and although we cannot guarantee this is genuine, we do have evidence that the car has covered around 13,000 miles since 1968. When we sold the Austin in 2000, the mileage was 57,270 so we can see the car has had light use in more recent years.
