This charming ‘baby’ Austin has an interesting history: at the start of war in 1939, the Chummy was exchanged by its owner for a reproduction antique. The motor car was completely dismantled, wrapped in newspaper and hid away for fifty years. In the early 1990s, it was rediscovered and became the subject of a comprehensive, photographic restoration, which included an engine rebuild by the Austin Seven Service in North Yorkshire. Apart from the work to the engine, the main restoration was carried out by Derek Bird of Uppingham and we are told that since this rebuild was completed, the Chummy has been used very sparingly, just for local outings and shows.

The fine example remains in excellent condition. The dynamo has recently been rebuilt and the hood has been renewed. A full tonneau cover is included in the sale.

The history folder includes a schedule of restoration costs, invoices, technical data, a parts list, the photograph album, the original handbook and a photocopy, an RF60 registration book, the V5 document, the V5C registration certificate and its replacement.
