HORNBY: Following the closure of the Canadian Hornby importer in 2023 we have contacted Hornby numerous times to secure continued supply of Hornby products to supply our Canadian customers. Unfortunately Hornby steadfastly refuse to communicate with us. Regretfully we have concluded that Hornby has no desire to support the Canadian market. As stocks of Hornby products are exhausted we are replacing these products with products from other manufacturers.

Regular price $16.00 Sale

The British made Austin Maxi was manufactured by Austin and then British Leyland between 1969 and 1981. 

 Described as a medium sized family car with a five door hatchback configuration and was fitted with a five-speed gearbox.

The Austin Maxi was the last car designed by Sir Alec Issigonis and was assembled at the Cowley Works, Oxford.

 It is registered BHD 670V from 1979/1980 

This model is based on the Maxi 1750 and our model says as much when you look at the radiator badge and the Leyland MAXI 1750 marque on the boot. 

Fine silver trim rounds off a model which in real life performed well, with a top speed of 97 mph.
