The Austin Seven was produced from 1922 through to 1939 and
nicknamed the 'Baby Austin'. it was one of the most popular cars
ever produced and sold equally well abroad. It took a huge
sector of the UK market having a similar effect to that of the Ford
Model T in the USA. Prior to the Austin Seven. larger cars
were the order of the day; however. the forward thinking Sir
Herbert Austin felt a smaller car would be more popular. In spite
of protestations from the company's board of directors who were
concerned about the financial status of the company. Austin won
them over by threatening to take the idea to their competitor. br/>Wolseley. and so got permission to start on his design. He was
assisted by a young draughtsman called Stanley Edge who worked at
Austin's home. Austin put a large amount of his own money into the
design and patented many of its innovations; in return for the
investment he was paid a royalty of two guineas on every car sold.
Nearly 2. 00 cars were made in the first year of production (1923);
not as many as hoped but within a few years the 'big car in
miniature' had transformed the fortunes of the Austin Motor Company
and by 1939. when production finally ended. 290. 00 cars and vans
had been manufactured.

Registered with the previous keeper from 1968 until 2015. this
1934 Austin Seven has had an interesting history. After finding her
in a sorrowful state. the owner restored the car and completed the
'Austin 50th Anniversary Rally' from Lands End to John
o' Groats in March 1972. He documented the run in great detail with
newspaper cuttings in recognition of the achievement available in
the history file. Supplied with a V5C registration document. this
Austin Seven Box Saloon is in need of a little tlc. A sound
example. well worth a little time and investment to put 'The
Duchess' back into pristine order once again.
