From the windshield back, the earlier style looks almost like the "Prefect", or 4-door Anglia.
Yeah the later Anglias body looked much like Austin's earlier body design. Unlike Anglia, Austin didn't make their 4 dr. any longer wheelbase than their 2 dr. The Anglias are longer wheelbase than my Austin, even in a 2dr., but in a 4 dr. Prefect they're a good 10" longer wheelbase. My Austin is only 89" wheelbase.
