Austin Pickup Truck

I think this is a an Austin 7 Pickup Van or might be an Austin 10. If anyone has any details as to when it was made and where, or its model type, I would be very grateful, This looks to be a very solid example and well kept. Better than the plastic ones manufactured today. Hopefully one day I will get the chance to drive a quality classic like this. Double declutching might be a problem though !

Comments Questions & Answers

I think the first truck is not an Austin 7. I had a 1936 Austin Van with enclosed back in 1948. The hood was much shorter but the grill was about the similar appearance. The engine & transmission were so light , after unscrewing 5 nuts, I could lift the whole thing out so I could work on it. I am interested in getting a picture of the engine by itself. I lived in Canada at the time- right after the war

Note : Sorry I would not be able to get a picture of the engine, so if anyone knows more ?
