2249cc is the capacity of the Sixteen-Six, the two sizes of engine were used in identical coachwork. The car was first registered a few days later than I thought. The model ran on into 1937.

Looks like it was repainted green and black:

I see that the "Six" script has gone from the radiator after the repaint. This shows that you cannot rely on small details when trying to identify cars, especially old or coachbuilt ones.

I've probably asked this before, but I'm still confused by these names. We have 16, 16/6 and Sixteen in use. I can get my head round having Sixteen for 1938/9+ cars which continued after WW2 where most of ours sit.

But do we achieve anything useful by having 16 and 16/6 as separate groups during the 30s?? Would we actually lose anything by having them all as 16, given we seem to rely very heavily on ephemeral grille badges?? A single group would be easier to deal with and would allow better linking of the various body types.

Sixteen does not apply to any bulbous car built before 1945, as pre-war cars were all Twelves, the four cylinder overhead valve engine of the Sixteen not having been in existence pre-war.

In the early thirties there was a vogue for small six cylinder engines like that of the Wolseley Hornet, and car makers called their cars names like Ten-Six to differentiate from the humble Ten-Four. Austin added a "Six" script under the word "Austin" on the grilles of its six cylinder cars to gain a bit of kudos for the more expensive engineering under the bonnet. Where the manufacturer used the added number for the cylinder count after the RAC horsepower, I tend to follow that description, Austins are a bit confusing because they had, at various times, four and six cylinder versions of most engines of Twelve horsepower and above, up to the Twenty. I have also adopted the use of words instead of numbers for these names although period adverts tend to show both or either.

You don't get the problem with Fords as they only built fours and V-8 s pre-ww2, unless there are some models I don't know about.
