1932 AUSTIN SEVEN TICKFORD CABRIOLET by SALMONS & SONS based on the short chassis saloon, a true collector’s car, being possibly the only one in existence. At the same time it is great fun and very easy to live with. Spares and advice is readily available from the owner’s club and there are many firms able to help with spares and repairs.
Enjoy all the quirkiness of owning a pre-war Austin Seven but with the added advantage of being able to demonstrate the fully lined, mohair, ‘Tickford’ folding roof, which is operated by means of an external winding handle. This is sure to cause much merriment and astonishment at Rallies and Shows. Best of all you will have something most have never seen.
The 747cc side valve engine has benefited from a Phoenix crankshaft and a high compression cylinder head, driving through a four speed gearbox for more relaxed cruising. 12 volt electrics are a definite plus for a car of this period. The car has not been idle and has had motoring adventures both at home and abroad, all the time being lovingly maintained by its then engineer owner.
The coachwork is beautifully finished in rich dark green with black wings, complemented by the tan hood. The interior trim is equally smart and the rich wood surround to the side windows adds that extra class. There is a good file containing old and new registration documents, a mass of M.O.T. certificates and a handwritten service book.
Offered on behalf of a now garage-less friend who has passed her to me for safekeeping and onwards transfer to its new home.
