Austin

The Austin A70 Hereford succeeded its predecessor, the A70 Hampshire, in 1950, and remained in production until 1954, when it in turn was succeeded by the A90 Westminster. The Hereford was available in a variety of forms, most of which are modelled by ourselves; the saloon, convertible and Countryman estate all being currently available. The Hereford had a 2,199 c.c. engine, and could reach a top speed of over 83 mph.
