1930 Austin 7 RG Fabric Bodied Saloon – One of 2 left
Completely charming & very rare pre-war classic, reported to be one of only 2 left & the subject of a complete body and mechanical restoration.
In fine useable fettle, this has been my own car for over 2 years and I can vouch for what a thoroughly enjoyable motor car they are……I’ll even throw in the gears diagram and the broom handle I use as a fuel gauge – get a few miles under your belt in it & you’ll be addicted.
Built on Chassis Number 118990 and the original Austin RG fabric body, it pleasingly retains the original registration number.
The captivating and comprehensive history file contains both green & buff logbooks, handbook, spare parts list, Austin 7 Companion, rally plaques, membership cards, certificates, receipts, hand written notes of the cars history and photographic evidence of the complete restoration carried out in 1972.
This particular car has also been subject to a very interesting article by marque expert Brian Purves as well as featuring in a recent article in the Telegraph celebrating 100 years of the Austin 7.
This wonderful motor car has completed the Lands End to John o Groats run in 2000, 2012 and in 1997 with the fastest time of 57 hours and 5 minutes and whilst it has been well campaigned during numerous endurance events around the UK, we hope the next owner will go on and enjoy many more events….maybe time for its next Lands End to John O Groats adventure?
