Lot C523

Description:

1932 Austin 7 Special 2-seater
Reg. no. RUY 802
Chassis no. 146964
Engine no. Unknown
Almost as soon as they first rolled out of Longbridge in 1923, enthusiasts have been experimenting with Austin Sevens, with many thousands of Sevens having been modified and enhanced. The aims of these modifications have taken various forms – to make a Seven a quick track racing car, for example, is very different to making one that will excel on a trials hill. The joy of building an Austin Seven special is that whatever route one chooses to go down, there are bound to be many knowledgeable people, and parts supply is excellent. It is testimony to the long-lasting appeal of these cars that the Austin Seven special-building community is still vibrant and thriving today, just one year from the model’s centenary.
This 1932 special project was purchased by the vendor in 2009; no work has been done to it since then. The chassis and body are both in good condition, while the engine and gearbox are both dismantled. The car has a number plate, but this is no longer on the DVLA system.
