Station Wagon

The largest member of the Austin saloon range launched in 1939, the 16HP four door saloon became Austin's first overhead valve production car. Powered by a 2199cc 4 cylinder engine the 16HP gave reasonable performance for its period, offering a respectable 75mph top speed.

The body style was similar to the other smaller Austin saloons featuring the American influenced front grille and high mounted headlamps, unusually an estate car version was also available, although not many of these were built. The four door body had a sliding "sunshine roof" and a split rear window giving it an upmarket feel to an otherwise conservatively styled car.

Production ceased in 1947 after 35,000 cars had been built.
