Both the Devon and Dorset were body-on-frame designs with modern bodies and a 1.2 L straight-4 OHV engine producing 40 bhp (30 kW) at 4200 rpm.[1] They featured front coil sprung independent suspension but retained a rigid axle and semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear. The Girling brakes with 9 in  drums were operated hydraulically at the front and mechanically at the rear. Later cars had column operated gear change and full hydraulic braking. A sliding sunroof and heater were extra cost options on the UK market.

The Devon was the 4-door version and was more successful than the 2-door Dorset, which was dropped in 1949 after only 15,939 were made. The "Countryman" estate was produced up until 1956. A van and pickup truck were also produced.

This Austin A40 Devon Pick Up is described by the vendor to be in outstanding condition and to drive very well. The vehicle is sign written from the previous owner with superb paintwork and a very original interior. The engine runs smoothly and starts instantly, this is a time warp car that has to be seen to be believed, with only three previous owners, and is difficult to fault. A great promotional vehicle or unmissable pick up for the commercial collector.
