Austin Lancer Series I.jpg

Austin Lancer. 1958–9 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/R, 1489 cm³ (I4 OHV). Lower-spec, Australianized version of Riley One-Point-Five and Wolseley 1500. Same sheetmetal as Wolseley. Fairly successful in its sector in Australia, considered a competent, good-value car, though with some mechanical weaknesses in light of tough Australian conditions. Twinned with Morris Major Series I.
