Early 50's Austin Model?
My father says he had a small Austin, likely a sports car, back in late 1950s New York. He was not wealthy, so I have to believe it was a model from the late 40's or early 50's for him to have been able to afford the car.
Apart from it being an Austin, the only detail I know is that the car had small paddles or flaps that would pop out the side as a turn indicator. Looking through the Wiki page for Austin, I don't see any with this feature. Does anyone have any ideas on what model he might have owned?

Austin made small vehicles of all types in England. In America we think first of the Austin Healey and the Bug Eyed Sprite.
