The Austin 3-Litre wis a Breetish saloon caur introduced bi Breetish Leyland in at the Lunnon Motor Show in 1967. Houiver, it subsequently became apparent that BMC wur nae geared up tae producin the caur: few or none seem tae hae been sauld that year, but bi Julie 1968 it wis reportit that the caurs haed begun tae leave the factory. Bi that time the square headlights seen at the 1967 motor show haed been replaced bi conventional roond twin headlamp units, an bi the time o the October 1968 show the caur haed an aa acquired front quarter lichts. In Julie 1968, wi caurs beginnin tae emerge frae the plant, the manufacturers wur asked tae detail improvements reportedly implemented syne the caur's 'launch' the previous October. Mention wis made o orifice modifications tae hydraulic valves in the rear suspension, an it wis stated that thare wis a "new" final drive ratio o 3.9:1, tho this wis actually the same final drive ratio includit in the launch information the previous October.
