The Austin 7

The Austin 7 chassis was fitted with a wide array of bodywork. The catalog of body styles had a variety of saloons, tourers and roadsters. The two-door saloon was the most popular for the general public, but tourers were not uncommon for those wanting a more sporting ride.

The Motorcar Offered

This little tourer is great example of an open Austin 7. The attractive two door tourer body is nicely proportioned and has a good top and full compliment of side curtains. The interior has been largely re-trimmed and has nice little bucket seats for the front occupants. The light weight tourer body should produce lively performance and will no doubt be great fun to drive. The car has not been extensively restored but has a presentable respray. Owned by the present vendor since 1961, the car has been used in recent times but will likely need some tinkering to assure road worthiness.
