VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY PLEASE.

This vehicle was sadly sold in an auction held by H&H Classics at Donnington Priory in Newbury on August 8th 2012.

This Austin 7 joined our Black & White Collection in December 2009.

When the previous owner's Brother passed away, an original Austin 7 Chummy chassis which was believed to date from 1928 was found in his garage, along with the front portion of a Chummy body and an old buff log book. As a memento to his late brother, the previous owner decided to restore the car, which he did so over a three year period and completed it in 2004.

The pick-up body was beautifully constructed by a friend of the restorer who lived locally to him in Solihull, near Birmingham.

Around 2002/3 and early on in the restoration, the restored chassis and running gear was displayed at the NEC Classic Motor Show on the Midland Austin 7 Club stand.

The Chummy was driven very few miles by the previous owner since its restoration was completed.

This Chummy was invited and displayed in front of Goodwood House in August 2010 at the prestigious Goodwood Road Racing Club Annual Vehicle Display.

Four new Blockley tyres, inner tubes, and rim bands were fitted in August 2010.

This Chummy is in superb restored condition as minimal dry weather mileage has been covered since the restoration. It has only been driven on a few short journeys in its current ownership (us) and it is this lack of use that sees it being put up for sale.

You could keep it as it is or have a coachbuilder such as Roach Manufacturing easily construct a correct Chummy rear end for it. As it is it would be a fantastic racing circuit paddock wagon at VSCC and other classic car meetings!

A brief history of the Austin 7:

The Austin 7 was produced in as many body styles as one can imagine between 1922 and 1939, and around 290,000 were made in total.

The engine was a 747cc four cylinder unit delivering 10hp and transferred its power to the rear driving wheels through a three speed gearbox.

Braking was on the rear wheels only (with the handbrake operating on the front wheels) until 1930 when braking was on all four wheels.
