    Aha! The famous 1921 Hickenloop Innenlinker! Just the thing to get you off the couch and into that garage that needs that column removed!

    Nope. Not sure if a clue or not but the owner (the guy I am getting the Austin from) bought it in Australia in the '60's and brought it back to Canada. Back then it was the only car he could afford and it was transportation for the family.

    It is however of British Extraction.
