    Red face From the Land of Avadh - 1947 Austin 8

    Dear All,

    Well thought to share with you all the pics of Our Antique Austin 8 - 1947 Model,

    The car participates regularly in the Antique Rally organized in Lucknow and near by areas,

    A little story about the car

    1. The car was used primarily for rally purpose as the tyres was worn out and the car was standstill in the remaining months.

    2. After searching in depth of tyre - original profile i believe 4-50 R 17,we got bike tyre installed and now the car runs fine,absolutely fine,

    3. Recently for sister's marriage the car was decorated,I never thought that it comes as such good looking but was amazed to see the beauty,it was a very pleasant surprise given by Uncle, the bride and the groom enjoyed the drive and were really happy to be in Austin 8.

    4. The car is a Head Tuner and I am sure that if some suggestion from our respected member Pavan ji would come it would be city turner sir,

    5. Now the plan is there to restore the same to maximum limit possible

    Rest I would let the pics do the talking,

    Thanks & Regards

    Anupam - I too never knew that you own such an antique beauty. We are certainly not happy with just 3 pictures. Start a new thread and please share us your complete owning experience and off course with lot of pictures. Thanks.
    Cheers,
