1946 Austin Sixteen
Introduced immediately after the 2nd World War, the Austin Sixteen (BS1
series) was the first Austin to feature an OHV engine. This body shape had
first appeared in 1939 as the revised 12 hp model, however, the 2.2 litre 16
hp engine provided a considerable increase in power which made this new
model especially popular. The Sixteen was well equipped, with a Jackall
built in jacking system, sumptuous leather interior and sunshine roof.
This example was first registered in May 1946 and has been the subject of
extensive restoration to a very good standard a few years ago with much
money having been spent. The interior is largely original and has survived
very well and the mechanical condition is extremely good, with the car
driving very well.
The car is supplied with paperwork which includes many bills, the original
handbook and spare parts list.
This Sixteen is a very comfortable family car with ample power, ideal for
longer distance motoring.
