The front suspension was independent coil springs with a rigid axle and leaf springs at the rear.

The Austin Sheerline is a large luxury car produced by Austin in the United Kingdom from 1947 to 1954.

The Sheerline was designed by Austin during the Second World War, but volume production did not begin until 1947 because of the commitment to war production. It was a luxurious car in the style of the contemporary Rolls-Royce or Bentley but at a much lower price, around two-thirds that of the equivalent Rolls-Royce but still the price of five or six small Austins. There were about 8,000 built but it is now becoming quite rare.
