1938 Austin Big Seven



1938 Austin Big Seven

This car is well known to us and comes with a large amount of history from new.

The car has clearly been well cared and has been subject to a 20 thou rebore.

From 1966 it was stored until sold by the son of the owner in approx 2008 but nothing happened until a new owner in bought it in 2011 and did a chassis upwards rebuild which took until 2014. This is well photographed.

The present owner purchased her in 2017 and has spent the last 12 months bringing it up to its present beautiful standard with much further work on the engine, fuel tank, seats all recovered and new quality carpets.

Also bumpers and door handles etc have been rechromed.

Always very much admired at many shows this year and covered about three hundred miles with only one problem - a broken fan blade!

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.
