1933 Austin Seven RP Saloon

A nicely mellowed example which has been slumbering for many years; in super order; kept in a heated garage; easy recommissioning required

This late-model chrome radiator Seven has been in the vendor's hands since 1999. Driven home and used for a short period of time, it was parked up in his heated garage and for a variety of reasons (not to do with the car) has barely turned a wheel since.

The history file includes a continuation buff logbook which shows it was living in the Midlands in the 1970s, our vendor acquiring the car from a lady in Stratford on Avon.

Looking through the invoices on file, it appears that the engine had an overhaul in 1989, since when it has covered barely 1,000 miles. It turns over nicely on the crank handle so we see no reason why a new battery and some fresh fuel wouldn't have it up and running in short order - it was 'running when it stopped'...

The bodywork is in very nice condition, as is the original upholstery inside - all in all it is a very nice little Austin 7 crying out for a simple recommission and some proper use.

With the Austin 7 Centenary coming up in 2022, this looks like the ideal opportunity to get involved.
