This Austin Seven was recently for sale in early 2014, and was reportedly owned by a Mr. Helliwell for over 20 years prior to this sale.
The car is a late model Chummy, with headlights located more conventionally at the front of the car. A large amount of work is described as being done to the car according to the advertisement, by H. Horsfield & Son of Halifax in 2009 and 2010. This included a complete rebuild of the front axle, brakes, kingpins, re-spoked wheels where required, a rebuild of the clutch and flywheel and more. The clinder head was also re-built in 2008. We note that the last known registration of this car was CV 1583.
