The Austin Heavy 12/4 was introduced in 1921 and although the mechanical specifications did not change much between then and the late 1930s when it ceased production, there were certain external differences that helped to date the car. Spoked wheels were introduced in 1933 and no open cars were produced after 1934, which puts our 1:43 scale Oxford release in that precise period.
Registered MR 8240, our four-door model is as used by Wiltshire Police and is completely black apart from the silver running boards. There is no indication that it is a Police vehicle, as it is devoid of beacons or the usual Police badge, which is interesting. Door handles, radiator grille and other brightwork have been given a chrome finish and the 'canvas' hood is matt black. The interior is also black apart from the silver instrument panel.
