Austin 10 Clifton Tourer will drive bidders

The Austin 10 Clifton Tourer, complete with a Dickey seat (an upholstered exterior seat which folds into the rear of the vehicle), has had little use recently, with the occasional outing in good weather around the local area.

Coming to auction with a vast history file documenting all the works carried out since 1951, the little Austin is estimated at £6,500-7,500.

“This charming little tourer has been through four different members of the same family over the past 73 years, which is really quite remarkable.” commented auctioneer Richard Bromell. 

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their busy programme of specialist auctions including coins, medals, stamps, toys, classic cars, and classic motorcycles throughout May and June.
