History of the Austin A40 Devon & Dorset
The first Austin to feature flush-mounted headlamps and front-hinged doors, over a quarter of a million were built between 1947-1952. It was also the first Austin to make use of the BMC B-series engine (as it would later be known), but still had many traditional elements like a separate chassis with hydro-mechanical brakes and independent front suspension. The A40 Devon was the original version, the A40 Dorset was instead just a two-door version of the Devon that mainly went for export. Amusingly enough in the UK more hot-rodded versions have survived than standard versions.
