Beschreibung

While microcars are common in today's Asian markets, the Austin 7 was Britain's answer to the American Model T at a fraction of the cost and, more interestingly, the size. The Tourer Type AD was introduced for the modest price of £145, roughly a quarter of the cost of a comparable Ford. Offered in a range of body styles, the Austin 7 is powered by a small 747cc straight-four engine and has a wheelbase of just 75 inches. Because of its low cost of entry, the Austin 7 began dominating the British car market, replacing the entire cyclecar industry of the early 1900s. They became common platforms for everything from race cars to delivery vans.

This 1925 Austin 7 is an excellent example of the Tourer Type AD. Finished in yellow over a black leather interior with a matching black convertible top, this Chummy has an undeniably classic look. This car has been kept as part of a private collection for the last decade, with occasional showings at local Concours events. It is a joy to drive and impressively economical, with a top speed of 52 miles per hour and a fuel consumption rating of 45 miles per gallon!
