Clown Car To Barn Car: 1949 Austin Devon


This 1949 Austin Devon has a history of circus use (!) before being stored in a barn for over 20 years. Now it’s been pulled out of the barn and is up for sale in Appleton, Wisconsin for $1,400. Thanks to Robert R for submitting this find!  It’s advertised here on craigslist. While more than 450,000 Devons were built, they are unusual to see today, especially in the United States. We don’t know anything more about this particular car, and even the advertiser is selling it for their landlord. There’s no title, although there are ways to legally acquire one depending on your location; check details before you purchase! There are parts available from specialists, even over here, so don’t be afraid of taking this one on if it captures your fancy. Does it?

    I’m selling for my landlord, but there is no title. Uhh, sure. Better follow up with that landlord before cash changes hands

    It kind of bugs me how pre-70’s cars are advertised as ‘no title’. There
    were no titles then, only registrations. A bill of sale should suffice to
    re-register them if they are not found on a stolen roster and they pass

    I can live with “not running”, and “Selling for landlord”, but “No title” is the kiss of death. Next.

    Looks like a miniature late 30’s Ford sedan, no?

    I bought one last year–Located in Maine, so it took a lot to get it shipped to Texas…No “title” required in Maine, but a “bill of sale” to prove ownership..took a while, but I got a Texas title—Oh, the car is 99.9% ORIGINAL ( new ebony paint job, and up-to date battery). Even came with factory tools and jack and oil gun.. Got an original shop manual, too—–total cost, including shipping ???? $ 14,500.00 But VERY well worth it !!!

    this brings me back to my youth. my cousin was moving to Ontario for work and he gave me his 1950 Austin. I was about 14 yrs old and we cut the back off that car and made a truck out of it. we hauled wood in places I’m sure a tractor couldn’t, go winter and summer.i would put the Austin in Jumbo Low. and man. that thing hauled ass. lol. my first car. loved it
