Content Description: 

A tiny, fuel efficient car like this might seem perfect for the hard times of the Great Depression. Mechanically it was identical to the British Austin, with an attractive body styled by famed designer Alexis de Sakhnoffsky. But at $445 the Austin roadster cost $10 more than a full-sized Ford roadster. Despite its cuteness, the American Austin failed in the marketplace.
