|1939 Austin 8 Tourer|
This was the first year for the Austin 8, replacing the hugely successful but antiquated A7. When England entered WW2 in 1939, civilian production ceased with A8's manufactured for military use only (see cartoon). These cars had extremely hard use and very few survived. When civilian production of the A8 resumed after the war, only closed sedans were offered, making the open tourer an extremely rare automobile. It is estimated that only appro...read more

With a 4 cylinder front mounted engine, the Model 10, while smaller and lighter than the Model F, represented a more modern design for Buick and enjoyed great sales success.
