This is the good old Austin 7 Ruby which many of us, like me, had as first car.
This one is in good order, I have done quite a bit to get it to warrant standard and I think it will get one ok, but I haven't tried yet.
Rego is on hold, as SG9700, but it carries old plates JX1936 which have no NZTA history and can therefore be transferred for small cost to be the official plates, to show the vintage.
I have had it for 3 years, and need the space (and time) it takes up.
I have rebuilt/rehung both doors, 1 new kingpin, serviced lots incl brakes, replaced water manifold and some gaskets, etc.
3 brand new tyres fitted. Ready for wof I reckon.
Engine runs sweetly, and has even compressions. Pretty near everything works except old trafficators, but it has flashers.
Some spares and books on it too.
Needs a new paint job really. There are some dents in roof where someone put something heavy before I got it that need some bog before paint.
I have a spare bonnet, road wheel, 2 x new cross kits for the driveshaft, 1 new kingpin, various bits and pieces, some bsf bolts etc. Also a couple of Austin books which are very good at explaining stuff.
I put 3 brand new tyres on @ $300 approx each. There is a guy at Mt Maunganui who has an amazing array of parts, also gaskets for virtually all the car. I have the parts list spreadsheet.

Car is at Omokoroa, Tauranga.
