Austin A40 Devon (produced from 1947-52) – Evans, N.Y.

And this is why I follow Hemmings Motor News on Facebook. Three years ago I took this photo on Rte. 20 in Evans, and have been trying to figure out what it is ever since. This past Sunday Hemmings had a posting which featured a photo of a 1947-1952 Austin A40 Devon — and there you go! There was also a two-door which was called the Dorset. The A40s were Austin’s first post-World War II saloons, and over 450,000 were produced before their replacement, the A40 Somerset, came along. Read more about the A40 here.
