    About this Austin 12/4 Light Ascot Introduced in 1934, the revamped Austin 12/4 range was distinguished by new more flowing wings, a sculpted radiator cowl and vents (in place of louvers) on its bonnet sides. Underpinned by a sturdy ladder frame chassis equipped with semi-elliptic leaf-sprung suspension and drum brakes all round, it was available in a variety of open and closed guises - eg Tourer, Saloon, Estate, Van etc. Powered by a torquey 1535 cc four-cylinder side-valve engine mated to a four-speed manual gearbox, most 12/4s were capable of achieving around 65mph flat out. The Standard six-light Saloon was dubbed the Harley, while the handsome booted Saloon took the title of Ascot. In 'deluxe' form the 'Ascot' was priced at £204 (some £16 more than its 'Open Road' Tourer sibling).

According to a buff card log book in its file this example, on chassis number 8674, was first registered in July 1928. As well as the factory offerings of a fine selection of their own open and closed models, Austins were also bodied by a number of specialist coachbuilders.This particular car carries a four-door four-light saloon body by Mulliners Litd of Birmingham who fitted mainly fabric covered bodies like this one on a relatively small number of Austin chassis in the mid to late 1920s. Trixie, as this car is affectionately known, was found in the 1970s in a barn in the Forest of Dean having been put away during the war and left there. It was restored and the body recovered with the help of well known Austin expert Tony S
