Description

Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1930 Austin 7 RK Fabric Saloon (Seven) For Sale.

Chassis no: 122301

Registration: GK 6376

 Right from the moment of its launch in 1922, the Austin Seven was an unprecedented success that not only saved Austin but wiped out most other small cars and cyclecars of the early 1920s. 

 Simply yet brilliantly engineered by Herbert Austin and his young protégé, Stanley Edge, at Austin’s home, it quite literally put Britain on the road. Occupying barely more tarmac than a motorcycle and sidecar, the Seven still managed to squeeze in all the comforts of a family saloon and boasted such luxuries as four-wheel drum brakes and (from 1924) an electric starter.

 Built around an A-frame leaf-sprung chassis and powered by a 10hp 747cc four-cylinder side-valve engine, it had transverse-leaf spring suspension at the front and quarter-elliptics to the rear. Available in numerous different body styles, it remained in production until 1939. Uncomplicated, huge fun to drive and bursting with character, this miniature masterpiece has long been the backbone of the vintage car movement.

 This particular Seven is a rare lightweight RK saloon of which few were made between 1928 and 1930, available with either aluminium or fabric bodywork. First registered in Plymouth in October 1929, the car remained in Devon for the next 80 years although it apparently spent the last 50 of them in storage.

 This charming and rare fabric bodied vintage Austin 7 has been the subject of a major body-off restoration some five years ago, as a result she is offerered in excellent condition.

 Mechanically she is also great, and has benefitted by a recent major service by our workshops, currently in our showrooms and ready to go.
