To start off, there is some assembly required here. However, wouldn’t you love the chance to own one of the world’s smallest American Austins? At 1:144 scale, this car is compatible with some N gauge models.

Personally, the first thought I had when seeing this was “Wouldn’t this make a very cool Buster Keaton diorama?” Perhaps something representing the Austin’s role in the 1931 Parlor, Bedroom, and Bath.
All you need is a correct style N gauge locomotive, like this one: N Gauge Locomotive. You may need some patience and skill as well, but the result will be worth it. I’d love to have one of these, but lately, I haven’t even had time to work on my own car.
Which scene would you want to recreate? I would think it depends on how much your like the Austin that day.
As a side note, that car was hit by a train and the cowl still looks straighter than the one on my Austin. How hard did that tree in 1949?
