The Australian built A494A Anglias of the 1949 to 1953 period shared the frontal styling and 90 inch wheelbase chassis of their English E494A counterparts but differed in many other ways, notably in the range of body styles offeredA494As where produced in 4-door saloon, 2-door tourer, 2-door coupe utility and 2-door roadster utility models.
All body styles had running boards, and the boot of the Australian saloon was less prominent than that of the English saloon.The 933cc 8 HP unit was initially the only engine offered, but the 1172 cc 10 HP engine was available from 1950.
At the time of its introduction, the A494A Tourer was the cheapest new car on the Australian market.
