Austin A125/A135Classic Car
The Sheerline was Austin’s first post-war flagship car, even if its design dated back to the 1930s. The first model, designated A110, was powered by a 3.5-litre straight-six, but this was soon upgraded to four litres to become the A125 – the iconic luxury car without the price. Offered in both saloon and limousine versions these big bruisers became synonymous with the undertaking world, as well as a mainstay on mayoral fleets. Not sophisticated, nor good to drive, but effective and surprisingly popular on the classic car scene.
