Austin 7 RubyFor sale is my Austin 7 Ruby first registered on 31st December 1938. I have owned this car since 2017 and enjoyed driving her and used her for many family days out and to attend some shows, but decided to sell due to other commitments. The car has been completely restored by the previous owner between 2005- 2012, - attention to detail carefully considered - and has a lovely interior, is mechanically sound, in running and driving condition but requires some TLC- see below.Restoration:The car featured in Practical Classics magazine from August 2015 with a Seven page spread detailing the restoration - a copy is included with the car.
