If the figures 747 are on your mind, you may be thinking of the enormous jumbo jet that whisks you off to foreign parts where you may not understand the language or the road signs. Your progress will be frowned on by those of us who seek to protect the planet.

For lovers of the Austin Seven however, 747 usually denotes the cubic capacity of their engine. This sturdy little unit will also whisk you off to foreign parts where you may not understand the language or the road signs, but fear not , you are only in Somerset, or at worst in Wales.

The Pearl Cabriolet is for those who cannot make up their mind. They know they want an Austin Seven and maybe their own body precludes the purchase of one of the sports models. Maybe they want a saloon or perhaps a tourer? Now we can offer the cabriolet, which to all intents and purposes looks like a Ruby saloon.  You can roll the roof back as far as the spare wheel on the back of the motor car. Best of both worlds then. You can take four people and their luggage as advertised in the original sales brochure and enjoy all the benefits of some fresh air, without destroying madam’s expensive hair arrangement.

APO 520 also forms part of the private collection. It looks really attractive and complete. Paintwork is good and interior also. We recommend the acquisition of a new battery and gentle re-commissioning before use as the car has been in dry storage for a little while. Should you need any help or spare parts, there is an excellent Owner’s Club and many enthusiast firms available.

This lovely example.is offered with a modern V5C registration certificate, a number of MOT test certificates and some invoices for work carried out. The car is currently on a SORN.
