Model: Seven APD Military
1934 Austin Seven APD Military Tourer
Chassis Number: 276655
A rare survivor of an assortment of Austins built to military contract specification. This car has had much money spent on it in the last three years & also in the 1990's as an assortment of bills testify. Freshly serviced it is running beautiful with suprisingly sprightly performance for such a dinimutive machine trotting along merrily between 40 & 50 MPH.
The car is finished in a jaunty shade of blue with black wings. The paint is patinated & adds to the charm of the car. The engine bay is clean, tidy & well looked after. The interior seat backs are original but the seat bases have been re-covered. Behind the seats is a useful lockable storage box under the parcel shelf. The car is equipped with a good recent convertible top. Side screens also come with the car for inclement motoring.
The car sits on four wire wheels shod with new tyres & a single spare is mounted to the rear. Very period looking this car is a delight to drive with an easy to use 4 speed synchromesh gear box. At 6ft 3" tall & long of leg, I have no trouble fitting in it & driving it. The car is a 1933/1934 model but was not road registered until 1937, presumably being used on a military base prior to its first registration. The car is VSCC Dated & comes with a VSCC eligibility document. A buff log book also comes with the car.
This Austin Seven is in fine running condition with a willing rebuilt engine that starts instantly & pulls surprisingly strongly. It is a delight to drive & elicits smiles wherever it goes.
