Le cabriolet joufflu en arrière plan... à mon avis, une ancêtre anglaise: Austin?

The type name ( English Counties) used on the 1950 Austin A 70 was Hampshire not Hereford.The name Hereford was adopted on the redesigned A 70 launched in 1951.

Pilou is right, it is the Hampshire, which was produced as saloon (sedan) September 1948 - October 1950, as pick-up September 1949 - March 1951 and as Countryman (estate) January 1950 - March 1951. The Concertible is extremely rare, literature speaks of only two vehicles, identified on pictures of the 1950 Amsterdam motor show. These were painted in black and white, respectively. This one seems to have a different colour, therefore we probably just discovered a third vehicle! [Image: neun.gif]

I have no reference on the coachbuilder, but as Carbodies was responsible for the Hereford Convertible it is likely that this is a kind of prototype to test customer reactions.

The year 1950 is likely for another reason. The position of the sidelight was higher on earlier models.

It is indeed: /vehicle_41805-Salmson-S4-61-Cabriolet-1949.html (click on 'Paris chante toujours!', just above the picture, and you'll find all the cars that Sixcyl was allowed to list...)

He even lists more than allowed :whistle: (or you mean "cars that he could possibly list"?)

I've got book reference to "a small number of Hampshire convertibles were built by at least two different coachbuilders" and that the Amsterdam show cars were Dutch-built. No other details.

I need to get 'Paris Chante Toujours!' on dvd; not only a rich variety of classic vehicles but also the first picture of a Hampshire convertible I can remember seeing.
(Then, there's a two-tone van in 'Dial M' going past as Ray Milland enters the house to be found out over his latch key). imcdb at its very best - fabulous.
Dear dsl, does your research indicate if any Hampshire convertibles or vans survive - or are they awaiting re-creation?

^ No idea - I'm at the end of my knowledge on these. You might like this pick-up and this flickr A70 page. And any thoughts on this Shooting Brake also welcome.
