Austin Super DeLuxe (1962-64)




Austin Super DeLuxe (1962-64)

SUMMARY
In October 1962 the Super and DeLuxe were discontinued and the Super DeLuxe came into being as the most luxurious model in the range over the basic Mini. It didn't last very long in this form, and in 1964 with the introduction of Hydrolastic suspension it reverted back to just the DeLuxe.
