AUSTIN 1100/1300

2-door saloon, 4-door saloon, station wagon.

Mini development with east-west engine plus Hydrolastic suspension and front disc brakes: Austin came a year after Morris version. Automatic option late 1965, station wagons March 1966. Two-door Mk Is for export only. Still quite enjoyable, but rust is a killer, especially in the rear subframe. Caution enjoined.
