Classic Car Photo Gallery: 1909 Austin Model 60

In 1900, James E. Austin was in the lumber business when he bought Michigan Iron Works in Grand Rapids, Michigan, so that his son, Walter, could have a place to tinker in mechanics. By 1902, Walter had a car on the road, and sold 13 of them the during the next year. At that point the father and son agreed that there could be a future in the manufacture of automobiles. The Austins weren't interested in assembly-line production and hand-crafted each of their Austin automobiles, limiting their numbers to 25 to 30 cars a year. The 1909 Austin was available in three models, Model 45 with a 6 cylinder engine rated at 45/60 horsepower; a Model 50 with a four cylinder rated at 60 horsepower and a Model 60, with a six rated at 60/90 horsepower. Each model could be configured as either a Touring Car, Roadster, or Limousine. Shown is the 1909 Austin Model 60 Touring car.
