Both Devon and Dorset were body-on-chassis designs with modern bodies and a 1.2 L direct 4 OHV engine producing 40 bhp (30 kW) at 4200 rpm. They featured independent front helical spring suspension, but maintained a rigid axle and elliptical semi-springs at the rear. Girling brakes with 9-inch drums (229 mm) were operated hydraulically at the front and mechanically at the rear. Subsequent cars had gearshift operated by column and fully hydraulic braking. A sliding sunroof and heater were extra cost options in the UK market.
The Devon was the 4-door version and was more successful than the 2-door Dorset, which was abandoned in 1949 after only 15,939 were manufactured.
The “Countryman” estate was produced until 1956. A van and truck were also produced.
Devon was the first post-war Austin designed to be assembled in New Zealand. It was produced from CKD kits at the Austin Distributors Federation assembly plant in Petone. Some examples are still on the road. [Citation needed] There is an A40 Devon operating and registered in Hamilton in 2019).
An A40 Dorset Tourer prototype was built in Longbridge in 1948. Although it was never put into production in England, several versions of the A40 Tourer were made in Australia from September 1948.
