The Austin 10 Utility Truck (better known as Austin Tilly) is actually the military
version of the Austin 10 saloon. The chassis is the same size and it uses a "platform"
construction that is the result of welding a pressed-steel floor to a frame, which
results in great diagonal stiffness.
The Austin Tilly has a few changes in comparison to the civilian Austin 10 – the
motor has more power, a water pump is added, a bigger fuel tank and the use of "cross-country"
tyres. About 30.000 vehicles were build. At this moment about 160 ´survivors` (from
wreck to excellent) are registered at the Tilly Register.
In 1944, an article was published in "Autocar". In this article, the Austin Tilly
was tested. The article can be downloaded here .
Beside the Austin Tilly were three other makes, the made light utility trucks: Hillman,
Morris en Standard. More information about all makes can be found at the site of
the Tilly Register.
