Austin 14 DHK 459

Hello
I am attempting to find this 1936 Austin convertible. We knew it as a '14'. it was originally green but may now be red.  Any help gratefully received.

Good News is it is shown as taxed and on the road at the DVLA, but is now red.

Thank you, yes I see it listed by DVLA, but wondering where to go from there to locate it ?

It may belong to a club member if you are lucky, but not all members are on this forum, some one who is, may recognise what is an unusual car, both in model and colour.

There is no legal way to get more information from DVLA as far as I know. Data protection will preclude a model registrar from giving you any information. He/she may be able to send a message to a member if the owner can be identified as a member.

That is all a long shot, not every one who owns an Austin is a member of course and sadly not all members are willing to put their car details on the membership list, in case their details are stolen.

Good luck with your search.  Syd

Re: Austin 14 DHK 459

DHK459 is not listed on our database so it is not possible to pass on a message to the current owner. As stated by Syd we are required to follow GDPR strictly.

This Reg No. indicates a car registered early in 1936, about March. The description 14 was not used by Austin at that date (it was first applied to the Goodwood model that came out in July '36) so it is likely that this car is a Lt12/6 (13.9).

Thank you Peter about the Lt 12/6 suggestion. I guess the 6 refers to the number of cylinders, and DHK 459 was 4 cal side valve I think ?
Any other leads on this car would be appreciated.

All pre-war Austin cars were side-valve. If it was a 4 cyl car then likely it would be a Lt12/4.  Details of the 12-14 range at  [open in new window]  https://www.austintendriversclub.com/ca … ad-image-0
