The importance of the Austin 7 cannot be overstated. A tiny car built on a wheelbase of only 6'3" and a track only 3'4" wide, it was ideal for the lanes of England. The 7 put England on wheels much as the Model T did for America. The BMW Dixi was a licensed Austin 7 as was the American Austin, a company which went on to design the Jeep. The first Datsuns were knockoffs of the 7 design. Even Jaguar traced the start of its motorcar business to custom bodies designed and built for the 7. The Chummy 2-door tourer was one of the most popular standard bodies on the 7 chassis. Their reliability and diminutive size have made them important collector cars, an attraction which is immediately apparent in this fully restored 1928 Chummy Tourer. Attractively finished in Maroon with Black fenders, Black interior and Black cloth top, it has a Motometer coolant temperature gauge, wire wheels and luggage rack. It is fully equipped including a set of side curtains for weather protection and cute little taillights. It has been properly restored and is very well done throughout, even retaining the plaques on the dashboard attached by the original dealer. It is the essence of “cute.”
