This Austin 7 was first registered in November 1978, and has original log books to prove it. It has recently had new hood and hood bag, as well as being treated to new 19” 350 Blockley tyres. All the plating has been recently re-done finished in Primrose yellow with black wheels and wings, and it has the original corrrect 6 Volt electrical system.
This Austin 7 Chummy has undergone a recent restoration (in 2008), and is in very good condition. This is an early 1928 Chummy, as distinguished from the later models by the location of the headlamps. Earlier Chummy cars have headlamps located just in front of their windscreen, as is the case on this particular car. Later models had headlights located more conventionally at the front of the car.
1981 car, grey interior, manual transmission - the most desirable combination. Production variants: bonnet grooves, no gas flap, earlier pull straps, seperate side bolster, black wheel caps and Craig radio with digital clock.
Correct lower front springs and stainless steel coolant tank have been fitted. Otherwise the car is totally unmodified, including original CAT and exhaust system. Good battery. Tyres all very new (still "hairy"). All gas struts work correctly, and the doors do not "droop"
