1951 Austin Sheer­line

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

In its ear­li­est form – ie. be­fore it gained Van­den Plas Princess badges and evolved into a rather bulky car beloved by pro­vin­cial may­ors – Austin’s Sheer­line was a well-pro­por­tioned, roomy and at­trac­tive car with a good turn of speed, al­most match­ing the Bent­ley MkVI in terms of qual­ity. With low pro­duc­tion and a high at­tri­tion rate in the 1960s and early 1970s, thanks to rot and the banger rac­ing fra­ter­nity, any sur­vivors to­day are rare, and this orig­i­nal and un­re­stored ex­am­ple is sen­si­bly es­ti­mated.
