The Austin Gipsy ("Gypsies") is an SUV in the Austin Motor Company from the 1950s and 1960s. He was taken as a rival of the famous Land Rover on the market.
The Gipsy is similar in appearance to the Land Rover, but other than this has no aluminum body, but as usual made of steel, and was initially provided with an unusual chassis, which was designed progressively more conventional.
The original independent suspension all round was by swinging with torsion springs made of rubber. Therefore, this suspension is called Flexitor. Younger Gipsy have at least partly conventional rigid axles with leaf springs. This change improved the handling on difficult terrain significantly. One of the motors used was the four-cylinder petrol engine with 2199cc, which was also used in the Austin A70. In the 1960s, this engine had a unusually low compression ratio, which made him appear to be suitable particularly low octane number of gasoline. There were also a series of four-cylinder diesel engine with 2178cc capacity.
Initially the car was available with a wheelbase of 2286 mm, a later version was added to 2819 mm, which is why between SWB (Short Wheel Base) and LWB (Long Wheel Base) is distinguished. The last series of the Gipsy received a redesigned grille and two-piece.
As Austin rose over the British Motor Corporation British Leyland Motor Corporation in belonged Austin Gipsy and Land Rover to the same group, so that the production of the Gipsy was terminated after 21 208 copies.
