The Austin 7 can safely be regarded as the Model T of the British car market, as it was the Austin Motor Company's response to increasing public demand for an affordable, easy-to-maintain, stylish car.  The 7 was manufactured between 1922 and 1939 with 290,000 7s made in this time period.  The 7 came in many varying forms under many, often whimsical names including the Ruby, the Swallow, the Speedy, the Opal, the Pearl, the Chummy, and the Nippy.  In addition to being identified by their names, the Austin 7 cars were also divided into several body types according to their various suitabilities--the Tourer, the Saloon, the Sport, the Cabriolet, and the Coupe. 


The car featured here fits into the Sport category, with its boat-tail and 2-person capacity, and may be an Australian coachbuilt model.  The Austin 7 Sport cars were designed to echo the appeal of a racing car while providing enough practicality to be used as an everyday driving car--though probably not for anyone with a large family!  The uniform engine for the 7, regardless of model, was a four cylinder 747 cc, 56 mm bore by 76 mm stroke. 


The Austin 7s were manufactured mainly in Britain, but were also made in Germany, France, and America.  It has been noted that the Nissan company of Japan informally used the Austin 7 as the basis for their initial car design.
