New tooling fills another gap in Oxford’s 1:76 scale Austin timeline with the Austin A40 Somerset, which in real life was only manufactured between 1952 and 1954. Produced at the Austin Longbridge factory, the Austin Somerset was classed as a medium family car with four doors. It featured a 1.2 Litre engine and came with a 4-speed manual gearbox. Top speed was 70 mph! During its short production lifetime, over 173,000 Austin Somersets were made, some of which comprised a modified 2-door convertible.
We launch the Austin Somerset in an all-over black colour scheme with contrasting silver trim and a bright red interior. It is registered PPO 819. A detail to note is the Austin of England badge proudly displayed on each side of the bonnet.
