Pick of the Showroom: 1938 Austin Twelve Landaulet
11th Dec 2014

Introduced in 1921 - the Austin Twelve Landaulet quickly became a favourite amongst London taxi drivers thanks to its durability and reliability, ensuring pre-war models were seen in and around the capital up until the 1960s.

This 1938 model \'FGT 532\' is offered in excellent condition, with recent bills, current MOT/tax and a V5C document. Finished in blue over black, and coach lined in red, with matching leather interior trim and black hood, this is a beautifully restored example which has been run out at several recent Goodwood Revival meetings and impressed on each occasion.

This vehicle features the Austin Landaulet \'Flashlot\' coachwork and comes complete with \'For Hire\' sign, working fare meter and luggage.

Used as a London taxi throughout the war and on into the 1950s, the vehicle was then exported to a museum in Canada where it remained until 1999. Since returning to the UK, \'FGT 532\' has been on display at the Exmoor Classic Car Museum in Porlock, Somerset, which acquired it in 2002.

The engine has been \'de-coked\' and a new cylinder head gasket was fitted in 2009, while in 2013 the clutch was replaced, the distributor rebuilt, and five new tyres and tubes fitted. This vehicle is perfect for the collector or the enthusiast wishing to own an important piece of London’s automotive heritage.
