The Austin 7 is a most iconic popular British motor car. Highly influential at the time it was built between 1922 and 1939 and appeared in a variety of differing body shapes but in essence remained unchanged mechanically throughout its year's of production between the two World Wars. It provided economical and reliable motoring for the ordinary motorist and was built in large numbers with some 300,000 in total manufactured.

Of simple yet durable construction the Austin 7 was fitted with a small four-cylinder engine with a removable head for maintenance accessibility. It was fitted with four-wheel brakes for safety at a time when much larger cars including Rolls-Royce still only provided rear-wheel braking. 747.5 cc removable-head inline four-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission with reverse, rigid front axle with transverse leaf spring suspension and friction damper, semi-rigid cantilevered rear axle with friction dampers, and four-wheel drum brakes.

Offered here is a desirable four-seater tourer which was last used used in 2008 when damage was caused to the brake bar as the car was being unloaded from a truck after taking part in the Bay to Birdwood Rally. It is also known that the vehicle had previously been used for touring in Tasmania in 2001.

Well presented in fawn and black, with brunswick green interior the car looks in good original order and is complete with black soft top.
