1941 BRC 40: hard-working ranch hand found in Oregon
September 1, 2013 - Last summer, a club member displayed his car at a concours d'elegance show in Oregon. Another attendee casually mentioned that he had a friend who owned a Bantam Reconnaissance Car but did not disclose its location. Persistance paid off and nine months later, the club member was invited to see the 1941 BRC 40 "jeep" in person. Turns out the unknown jeep had been a hard-working ranch hand for 47 years before it was retired. See the rest of the story in the July/August 2013 issue of the American Austin Bantam Club News.

Other stories from this issue include: American Austin climbed Lookout Mountain in Colorado; Bantam BT3 trailer rescued; Rare Austin 475 series coupe found in Washington; Bantam factory-approved accessories; An in-depth look at the Bantam Super 4 line; Bantam vending cars introduced hot dogs to Hawaii; and an Austin roadster "barn find" in New Hampshire. As a 14-time winner of
Old Cars Weekly's Golden Quill Awards, the American Austin Bantam Club News delivers fresh stories six times a year.
