Synopsis

The Austin Seven by Jonathan Wood

One of the most famous of British cars, the diminutive but robust 750 cc Austin Seven, introduced in 1922, changed the course of automobile design and proved the viability of the small-capacity four-cylinder car. The salvation of the Austin company, it was aimed at families who might otherwise have travelled by motorcycle and sidecar, and it remained in production until 1939. The Seven performed as well on the race track as it did on the road and inspired a team of magnificent twin overhead camshaft single-seaters. It survives in respectable numbers to provide new generations of enthusiasts with a practical, economical car to run, race and restore.

About the Author

Jonathan Wood, the former owner of an Austin Seven, won the Pierre Dreyfus Awards for his acclaimed series of articles in 'Classic Cars' magazine about the birth of the model. The author of some thirty books, Wood has twice won the Montague Trophy, awarded by the Guild of Motoring Writers, of which he is a member, and twice received the prestigious Cugnot Award from the Society of Automotive Historians.
