Austin A40 Somerset Model GS4 Saloon was introduced in February 1952. Virtually a scaled-down version of the A70 Hereford this model is mechanically similar to the preceding A40 Devon (1948-52), but with various detail improvements including a slight increase in bhp (42 v. 40) from the 1200-cc engine.
