Introduced in July 1937 in response to demand for 4 door version of the Austin Seven, the Big Seven featured an entirely new engine of 900cc. Slotting into the Austin catalogue between the Seven and Ten models, the Big Seven achieved immediate success, being surprisingly lively with a top speed of over 60 mph and acceleration that shamed several more expensive rivals.
The following year a 2 door version was to appear – this being known as the ‘Forlite’. Offering comfortable accommodation for four adults and very good fuel economy, the Big Seven continued in production until April 1939, after around 20,000 were produced, when it was superseded by an entirely new model – the Austin Eight, which retained the now well proven 900 cc power unit.
This example of the Sixlite is, without doubt, one of the best of this model in existence. It is also one of the very last of this model, having been registered in May 1939. The subject of a professional restoration completed three years ago, to an exceptionally high standard this is a delightful little car in all respects. Numerous photographs detailing the restoration are provided along with the spares list, a copy of the original driver's handbook plus a considerable amount of information on this model.
