History:

The Austin A40 Sports debuted at the 1949 London Motor Show as a four-passenger convertible variant with the aluminum body of the Austin A40 – carrying an Austin of England nameplate with the Austin Flying A hood ornament and designed and manufactured in with Jensen Motors.

Production of the A40 Sports, which was supposed to be a sports touring car instead of a real sports car, started in November 1950 for the 1951 model year. When production ended in 1953, just over 4,000 had been manufactured.

 

Engineering

global vision As part of a series of collaborations between Austin and Jensen Motors of West Bromwich, the A40 Sports originated when Austin President Leonard Lord saw the Jensen Interceptor and asked Jensen to develop a body that could use the A40 mechanics. The resulting A40 Sports body was designed by Eric Neale, a stylist who joined Jensen in 1946 after working at Wolseley Motors. During production, the bodies of the A40 Sports were built by Jensen and transported to the Austin Longbridge plant for final assembly. According to Lord’s intention, the A40 Sports was based on the mechanics of the Austin A40 Devon, although the center section of the chassis was boxed to provide rigidity for the open body.

The A40 Sports also employed a double SU carburetor version of the 1.2 L engine producing 46 hp (34 kW) instead of 42 hp (31 kW). The selection of gears was originally through a gear mounted on the floor. The steering was of the endless type and roller, the front suspension consisted of independent helical springs with rigid beam axle and semi-elliptical leaf springs at the rear. The production of the A40 Sports took place in two series. The initial GD2 series started in November 1950 and featured a gear shift on the floor and panel identical to that of Devon. The later GD3 series started production in August 1951 and ended in April 1953, featuring a gear shift in the steering column, fully hydraulic brakes and a revised dashboard with a centralized instrument panel. 4,011 A40 Sports were built.
