Lot 1941


1930 Austin 7 Boat Tail Tourer
Reg. no. GPD 729
Chassis no. 125547
Engine no. M104862
Today, the Austin Seven barely needs an introduction, it is an iconic and still hugely popular vehicle, instantly recognisable and often credited with mobilising the British people like no other car. However, it nearly didn’t even make it past the drawing board. Austin’s background consisted almost entirely of large cars, and Herbert Ausin\'s proposed new model met with such resistance from the board that he had to personally finance much of the project. Over 30 different body styles were offered during its life, but the 747cc engine remained throughout.
This 1930 Seven is in good condition and running well; it has had much work done, no doubt enhancing its performance significantly. The electrics have been converted to 12 volts, with an alternator within the old dynamo casing, and the brakes are now hydraulic, while the engine has been extensively worked on and upgraded by Seven competition engine specialists Pigsty. LED lamps have been fitted along with an electronic rev counter. With too many upgrades to fully list here, this should be an exciting car to use and enjoy, safe in the knowledge that spares are always available, along with a huge amount of expertise from the Seven community. It comes with a V5c.
