Did all models have safety glass?

Perhaps he was giving the car its head.... and lost his.

And just because the brakes were intact does not necessarily mean he could stop!

I think Martin has the crankcase.

Bob - not sure what you mean by safety glass. As at February 1926 Austin offered Triplex (laminated) glass, but only if you paid extra then. Fairly sure it became standard in windscreens later, but so far can't find the time to look it up. Bill in Oz
