1935 Austin 12/6 - looking for information and parts

1935 Austin 12/6 - looking for information and parts

Late last year, I bought this 1935  Austin 12/6 Two door Coupe with Engine Number LFF 6161, and chassis number F 27724.  We are pretty sure it is a 12, with the 1.711 litre engine, after measuring piston diameter and stroke. Unfortunately we had to pull the head off for some repairs. Some of the few papers that came with it indicate others assumed it to be a 14. The same size engine was fitted to both series.

Below are two photos and wonder if you know how we might ascertain whether or not it has a S.A. Holden body? The lady at Wagga, from whom I bought it said it was, but her brother had discarded most of their late fathers paperwork on the vehicle.

Also, the vehicle is missing its rear shock absorbers, and I wonder if any of the readers/Club Members can assist me to secure a pair of those? I now have the vehicle registered in Queensland as “ 3 AUS 5 “.
