Austin Champ - the civilian version of a British Army vehicle made by Austin. The army version was officially known as "Truck, 1/4 ton, 4×4, CT, Austin Mk.1" however the civilian name "Champ" was universally, if unofficially, applied to it. It was mostly fitted with a modified Austin A90 Atlantic 4 cyl engine as a cheaper option than the more complex Rolls Royce designed B40, but the vehicle attracted few customers and only about 500 were built, the great majority of these being exported.
