For Sale is our 1930 Austin 7 Sports special.
With a very charming 30's period look this car turns heads where ever it goes!
The Austin in based on a 1930 short wheelbase chassis and is fitted with a 1928 Magento engine with high compression head.
Fitted with 19" Blockley Tires (Longstone)
We have owned the car for the last 3 years and have had many miles of fun but due to other projects we must reluctantly let her go.
This Austin is a very reliable car and has been used as daily transport for the last 2 years come rain or shine. She starts on the button and sounds fantastic.
We have also taken part in a charity run last November covering over 800 miles in 4 days with no issues at all.
We have done alot of work on the car since purchasing and the key work is listed below:
Rebuild of Magneto (Mag Ing Supplies - Ireland)
Respoke of rear wheels
New rear sport springs (Ian Dunford)
Rebuild of rear suspension and shock arms
New Prop Shaft with UJ at both ends
Re-wire including LED lights fitted for safe night driving.
New Red Top Battery - Will come with charger
Recent brake linings to Rear Axel
New seats, base and trim. Recent Interior trim.
Body Coach painted in light blue Enamel.
The car also comes with period tool kit & a selection of tools including hub puller a period reproduction manual and a copy of the Doug Woodrow Workshop manual.
Also included are a number of spares, Wheel, Back axel casing and diff parts. Gaskets etc etc
This car is an honest and very usable special, as with all Austins of this period it uses a bit of oil and will always require tinkering but that is the joy of owning a 90 year old motorcar.
We have noticed a rumble recently from the rear axel so this will need inspecting and I expect working on in the near future.
With this in mind we have priced accordingly.
We are happy to arrange further photos or answer any questions you might have.
Serious buyers are more than welcome to view the car (following social distancing rules)
