The Register was established in 1969 and has approximately 721 members. The aim of the Register is to encourage the preservation and maintenance of Vintage Austin motor vehicles designed up to and including 31 December 1939; to obtain and conserve books and historical records relating to such vehicles: and to engage in activities relating to these vehicles.

From May 2000 some post-war vehicles whose design features pre-date December 1939 were accepted into the register.

Members are able to purchase a wide range of spares from the Spares Register, and an extensive archive enables the librarian to answer questions relating to details of these vehicles. Vehicle details are held by the Vehicles Register who is able to assist with the dating of vehicles.

The Club sends out a quarterly magazine that is the envy of other clubs both in quality and content. We also supply each member with a membership and car details booklet.

Our members enjoy rallies, tours and local meetings which are specifically planned to suit vintage Austin cars. By becoming a member one will join a like-minded group of people who appreciate and enjoy the intrinsic qualities of the products of ‘Herbert Austin’

When writing to any National Committee member or Area Representative please include a stamped addressed envelope if you require a reply.
