Footnotes

  • A huge success from the moment deliveries commenced in January 1923, the Austin Seven remained in production until 1939. Ruggedly built, economical and easily maintained by the home mechanic, the Seven brought motoring within the financial reach of the man in the street, who hitherto would probably have settled for a motorcycle combination. Its introduction helped save the ailing Austin concern and by the mid-1920s the Seven dominated the light car market in Britain. The sole version available when production commenced was the 'Chummy' tourer, but by 1927 saloon, fabric saloon and coupé versions were on offer. A stronger, lengthened chassis of 81" wheelbase was standardised from 1932 and the Seven range received a much-needed four-speed gearbox the following year, a rear-mounted fuel tank and mechanical pump being adopted at the same time.

    This 'barn find' Seven has been in the same ownership since the early 1960s, sharing its accommodation with the Napier and Bentley 4½-Litre in this sale (Lot ??? and ??? respectively). The car is finished in black with red vinyl door cards and grey fabric seats, the latter non-original. Largely complete, it should be a relatively straightforward restoration project.
