1938 Austin Seven H.J. Mulliner Style Boat tail.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Registration number: 705YUC<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> A beautiful boat tail Austin 7 with a body constructed to a Mulliners of Birmingham plan by whom a number of similar cars were produced in period. The car is in flawless freshly restored condition with few miles put on it since a full rebuild The car goes extremely well with great power from the dinimutive little engine. A full photographic file comes detailing minutely its construction. The car is assembled from an assortment of best available Austin 7 parts starting with a bare chassis. The car was assigned a period plate due to to paragraph in the DVLA rules stating: <br /> <br /> "Vehicles comprising genuine period components of the same specification all over 25 years old will be assigned an age related registrationmark. The appropriate vehicle enthusiasts club must confirm authenticity of the components."<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> A Leather bonnet strap holds down the polished aluminium bonnet. The builder notes that W.O.Bentleys & the like have £140.00 items backed in Lambswool to stop the bonnet paint chafeing. In the Austins' case a pair of £6.00 gents trouser leather belts from Walsall market did the trick!. The car is running 12 Volt electrics allowing for decent modern lights etc. A modern SU carb feeds the engine few by an electric fuel pump. Pleasingly the wings & metal parts are coach pinted to a high standard.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Please take time to read the paperwork to understand the amazing detail that went into this build. The car has for example been converted to four wheel brakes with the handbrake operating the rear wheels rather then more usually the front ones. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> The body has been beautifully done in an ash frame covered in Black Rexine fabric. The boot lid flips open to reveal a useful luggage space containing the spare wheel & having room for additional soft bags. The car comes with a full tonneau cover allowing the car to be zipped closed when unattended. To the rear is a luggage rack allowing for a hard suitcase to be mounted on it should the new owner elect to do the Peking Paris run or similar!!!<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> The car sits on 3 nut wire wheels painted in red. Brand new tyres are found at the 4 corners & the boot stored spare is also brand new. Foul weather gear consists of.......Well....erm...there isnt any. The builder notes that he was pleased to find an original 60mph speeometer but can't tell us how much he paid incase his wife reads the ad!! It was zeroed out when refurbished so the car's first MOT reads 3 miles. No doubt the builder will be done for clocking cars???<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> To the interior is red hide thoroughout including seats & door cards. A matching set of red carpets complete the look as does the polished aluminium bonnet with leather retaining strap along with matching red wings. A Vee windshield adds to the period look. A full set of period instruments are mounted in the dash board. The three speed gear box is easy to use once one masters the reverse layout with first gear being found one one might more usually expect to find 4th. Reverse is in the 3rd gear position similar to a 3 speed Rolls Royce 20hp.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Simply put: this is an immaculate fully rebuilt & restored car that has seen only shakedown miles since its build. It is a delight to drive & puts smiles on the faces of all who see it. Driving it is OK for those of larger stature, but be warned that the racy looks to tend to unleash the inner hooligan in one. It almost comes into the "Too good to drive" category!<br /> <br /> A gallery of large high-resolution pictures may be viewed on our website.<br /> <br /> Richard Biddulph 07967 260673<br /> <br /> Richard Biddulph 07967 260673<br /> We accept Credit/Debit Cards.<br /> Part Exchange welcome.<br /> Weekend & evening viewings OK.<br /> Viewings by appointment :<br /> <br /> 2 Ryehill Ct, Lodge Farm Industrial Estate, Northampton NN5 7UA
