1970 Austin 3 Litre

1970 Austin 3 – Litre

This is a remarkable example of the now very rare Austin 3 Litre. The Austin 3 Litre was introduced by Austin at the London Motor Show in 1967. To cater to its intended market, the interior was luxurious, featuring wood veneers and cloth headlining. The cars were fitted with a 125 bhp 3-litre engine that drove the rear wheels. The car used Hydrolastic suspension with self-levelling hydraulic rams at the rear and was praised for its excellent ride and handling. This example is accompanied by an extensive history and service file including original order sheet dated 16th Feb 1970. Please contact us for further information and photos. Viewing is by appointment only in our North Canterbury based Motor House.
