Austin 10hp Light Utility

Military Vehicle Open Day, Imperial War Museum, Duxford 6th June 2010
The Austin Light Utility was based on a civilian car of the immediate pre war period, but had a boxy pick-up type body with a canvas tilt cover. Some changes were made for military use such as a simpler mesh radiator grill and the fitting of military tyres but in practice the ordinary front wheels were often retained, which avoided very heavy steering.
