This 2249cc six-cylinder Austin 16/6 Harrow Doctor's Coupe (with rear dickey seat) dates from 1933 but was reregistered in October 2013 in order to retain its original numberplate. Since then, it has had three registered keepers. It was exported to Guernsey by a previous owner while working there, but then returned to the UK around 2016. The car is described by the vendor as running and driving well with no known issues and a ‘lovely smooth six-cylinder engine’. It has been restored at some point, although it isn't known when, and the hood is reported to be good. The electrics have also been upgraded to a 12-volt system. The odometer shows 2386 miles; there's no MoT but as an historic vehicle, the Austin no longer requires one. Paperwork with the 16/6 includes the V5C, some invoices, a copy and photocopy of the owner's handbook and some technical info. There's also some photos of the car, an August 1970 tax disc and an Austin spare parts list.
