  Suur-Saimaan Ympäriajo 30.6 – 1.7.2012

 Austin A40 Somerset Model GS4 Saloon was introduced in February 1952. Virtually a scaled-down version of the A70 Hereford this model is mechanically similar to the preceding A40 Devon (1948-52), but with various detail improvements including a slight increase in bhp (42 v. 40) from the 1200-cc engine. The new body styling is well planned with wider rear doors giving better access to rear seats, more passenger space and better soundproofing.

 Austin A40 Somerset Model GD5 Drophead Coupe joined the saloon in August 1952. It have similar dimensions to the saloon except that the overall height is slightly less. The top could be used in three positions, i.e. fully raised, 'coupe de ville' or stowed behind the rear seat. The rear quarter windows could be swivelled down into the body sides. The top is operated manually on this model, although power operation is available at extra cost.
