Austin A70 Pickup
The Austin A70 Hampshire was launched in 1948 to replace the Austin 16 BIS and retained the 2199cc 6-cylinder engine of that car. The A70 was usually sold as a 4-door saloon but was available as a chassis-cab for coachbuilt bodies. Two such variations were a 2-door wooden station wagon and a pickup version. The Pickup was introduced in 1948 using Hampshire panels and continued in this form until it was updated in 1951 to use Hereford panels. When the Hereford was replaced by the A90 Westminster, the commercial versions were not replaced.

Austin A70 Utility 1952. In 1949 Austin introduced a pickup version of the Austin A70 Hampshire, this vehicle was also available as a chassis-cab unit for other coachwork. In 1950 the Hampshire had evolved into the A70 Hereford and so in 1951 the A70 Pickup used the Hereford chassis-cab instead.

Austin A70 Utility 1952. This pickup used the chassis-cab unit which Austin already supplied to those who wanted to build their own coachwork onto it. The Hereford-based pickup was introduced in 1951, and prior to that Austin sold the Hampshire-based pickup. In Australia they had their own version, possibly locally built, and this had a longer cab superstructure and a wraparound rear window made of two pieces of glass.
