In the early 1920s, the Austin Motor Company brought out their little Austin Seven, which over the next few years became a byword for affordable motoring for the masses. A devastating blow for the manufacturers of cycle cars and the like, the charming little Seven completely won the hearts of the motoring public and it continued in many guises up to 1938. The 747cc engine continued to be built by Reliant until 1962.  Spares and Club support are excellent and there can be no better way to enter the field of Pre War motoring than by acquiring some form of Austin Seven.

We are informed that this Ruby has been beautifully restored throughout over a number of years. The upholstery and headlining have been renewed to a high standard and the mechanics have been thoroughly checked; in 2010, we understand that the engine had a complete overhaul with new pistons fitted and the white metal bottom end renewed. With safety in mind, discreet flashing indicators have been installed. This pretty baby Austin is ready to be enjoyed and is supplied with a V5C registration certificate, service invoices and others.
