Vintage Austin Register Ltd

The Magazine & Newsletter

The Vintage Austin Magazine


The register has always been at the forefront of producing first class magazines and newsletters for its members. Currently, members receive four glossy 40 page magazines a year and eight 24 page newsletters. The magazine which contains a wealth of colour pages, regularly features stories written by members, and contains many articles which have been researched into the history of the company and its products.

The Magazine frequently reproduces previously unpublished photographs of Austin vehicles.

The Newsletters are designed to supplement the Magazine, and concentrate on informing members of forthcoming events, rallies, meetings, and items, such as spare parts and complete vehicles which members wish to sell or require.

The Register also publishes a list of members and their vehicles which is updated annually.

Other publications available include a reproduction of the first Austin Advocate Magazine (first published November 1911)

The Archive

Since the beginning of the VAR original factory produced publications have been collected and conserved.

The archive contains many original sales brochures, handbooks, service journals, and catalogues and also one of the largest collections of the ‘Austin Advocate’ Magazine, commencing with the first issue which was published November 1911.

Most of these can be copied for a modest fee, plus, postage & packing, available from our archivist.
