Nope you were wrong. The automobile I posted a question about was NOT a Austin. It was a Datsun 16 and was quite different in many ways. Different running gear, different engine and two different automobile manufactures. If you look at the two cars side by side there are many dissembler features. Datsun did not at any time make a Austin. They did however use many features from the Austin 7. Austin of England never sold their product in Japan.

Minor changes but basically a Austin although the engine and suspension were Datsun's. Datsun and Austin maintained a relationship with Austin until 1955 (although during the war years production probably slowed a bit). It seems though that Datsun never really built a direct copy of any Austin.

Below is a 1936 Datsun 16 and a 1936 Austin 7

The pic on the left is a 1937. The vents on the side of the hood are different between 1936 & 1937. As for the pic on the right, I haven't looked into that to see yet. You may be right.
