The 1934 American Austin coupe is an interesting and rare car. Under the care of Roy. S. Evans, American Austin gave a small facelift to the exterior of the car by introducing a sleek raked back windshield along with a louvered hood, replacing more conservative two bar bumpers with single bar bumpers, and the headlight bar gave way to an incorporation of the headlights into the fenders. Eschewing chrome for the sleep look of a painted grille, American Austin was seeking to prove itself as a more modern version of its previous perfection.
Under the refreshed sheet metal were various other improvements including the Red Head engine and other technical improvements. Personally, I think these slanted windshield coupes top my list of favorite coupes built in the early 1930’s.
As the photos of the interior show, this is one remarkably solid American Austin. It appears that it has been well cared for and is ready for a new owner to turn their imagination and handiwork to it.
The owner states that this car runs and drives. It is unclear what has been rebuilt or refurbished at this point, but it is clear that this car will prove to be an excellent car to add to your collection.
This car is located in Bakersfield, California and the owner is asking $12,000.
