Yes, it does look like the Austin 10  :D & what a funny story, Celia...poor doggie :'(
I know my father had a fondness for Austin cars so that's where it might have begun & his first car was an Austin A40 (as was mine  :))
Nice work guys  ;)

Not sure it's an Austin 10. The back wheel arch on the A10 is wider, there are also trafficators which are missing from Jane's car. The mirror is not in the same place - but that could have been an optional extra. You also cannot see the bars that the windscreen has for when the screen is raised up.

However the vents on the side are the same on the black A10 as they are on Jane's car. So I would say that Jane's  car is the same period as the A10 and maybe an Austin or perhaps possibly a Ford.

What a pity Jane's grandfather has his leg in front of the wheel hub because I reckon if we could have seen it clearly it would have identified the car.

A very similar Morris 10/4 is at:

(see image below)

And a Standard 10 at:

but the door handles are differently placed and the vents are different.

Is that a spare wheel attached to the back of Jane's car in the first photo?

I know a man who could tell you what it is where it was built etc...

What this guy does not know about cars, would fit on the back of a stamp.

I will pin him down in front of this picture later
