Some time ago Longstone tyres got hold of an original 450X18 tyre that the Austin 10/4 had left the factory with. This tyre was sent to our friend who made an almost exact copy. We don't believe there is a better tyre for the Austin 10.

The Austin 10 was a small car made by the Austin Motor Company. It was launched in 1932 and was Austin's best selling car in the 1930s and continued in production, with upgrades, until 1947. It fitted in between the Austin 7 which had been introduced in 1922 and the Austin 12 hp which had been updated in 1931.
The design of the car was conservative with a pressed steel body built on a cross braced chassis. The chassis was bought in and was designed to give a low overall height to the car by dipping down by 2.75 inches between the axles. The 1125-cc four-cylinder side-valve engine producing 21 bhp drove the rear wheels through a four-speed gearbox and open drive shaft to a live rear axle. Suspension was by half-elliptic springs all round and the brakes were cable operated. The electrical system was 6 volt. For the first year only, a four-door saloon was made in two versions. The basic model cost £155 and was capable of reaching 55 mph, it was rapidly followed by the Sunshine or De-Luxe with opening roof and leather upholstery at £168.
