This charming and wonderfully coloured fabric bodied Austin 7 Saloon was first registered on April 19th 1929. According to notes supplied to our vendor when he purchased it in March 2013, the car was acquired as rough but running in 1975 by the previous owner and he proceeded to have it restored gradually over the next ten years. An owner of several Austin 7's we believe (as is the current vendor), he states on some incredibly comprehensive and caring operation notes he passed to our vendor, that he had done many rallies in the car all over England and Scotland, including the JOGLE Rally (John o'Groats to Lands End) and rallies with the 750 Motor Club. Described by the vendor as being in good condition in all respects, this is a delightful little Austin 7.
