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?
