With new fi­nan­cial back­ers, a new fac­tory in Feltham and a new ohc 1.5-litre en­gine, the era of ‘Bertelli’ As­tons be­gan in 1927. There were sports and com­pe­ti­tion mod­els, and also a tourer and a sa­loon (pic­tured), while 1929 saw the in­tro­duc­tion of the low-slung, dry-sumped In­ter­na­tional model, based on the com­pany’s widely suc­cess­ful rac­ing cars of the day. The In­ter­na­tional was fast and re­fined but the price was high and sales re­mained slow. In all, 129 ‘First Se­ries’ cars were pro­duced.
