Midsouthern Restorations

1938 Austin American Bantam Coupe

Very rare and unique is a way to describe this little vehicle. This auto was first restored by an incompetent restoration shop and then brought to Mid-Southern Restoration. The mechanical parts were re-gone through, and the 20-horsepower four cylinder motor was brought back to life. The body was stripped down, and body and paint were reworked. The little coupe always draws a crowd at the shows and attended a Concours d'Elegance show in Florida in March 2009. The owner is an avid car collector from Cookeville, Tennessee.
