That's some story about the Austin car company. Before my time, but my mom had an Austin in Canada decades ago now. My Dad says British cars were unreliable. I guess they were mass market enough then, to be sold in Canada and other countries. And the odds of them doing the whole thing after the war yes is remarkable.
