Austin

The Austin Champ 4WD was built to a British Military specification after WWII although it later lost out to the cheaper, and more versatile Land Rover.

The Austin Gipsy 4WD was an attempt to take on the civilian Land Rover. It was innovative in many ways but floundered on cost and corrosion problems.

The Austin Ant small 4WD, one of the products of Issigonis' magic, did not go into production - on cost grounds.

Beginnings:

1922: "Baby" Austin 7 produced - 696cc engine, later 747cc. Unlikely as it may seem, racing versions were built and Austin 7s have even been driven round the world.
