  1927 Austin publicity booklet
Posted by: 3W7 - 4 hours ago - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (2)


I just found a booklet of 20 pages within a light-grey cover called "La suprématie de la Austin Seven"
The text is fully in French, illustrated with 9 b&w photos and about its succeses in record-breaking and races up to the 1st place in september 1927 in the "Course de 500 Milles, pour la preuve du combustible, à Brooklands" if you see what it means!
Its size is 13cm wide and 20,1cm high and it wears the ref : Pub. No. 595B
It also refers the reader to the catalogue 611E for details of a saloon similar to the one page 72 of C. Harvey's book.

It looks so new although the staples are devenitively 1927 looking and I can't find a reason for some one having made a reprint. Also september was the exact time to publish such a catalogue for the october 1927 Salon de l'Auto in Paris.
Could you confirm the date ?

  Austin 7 Special C.C.Gregory 1992 info
Posted by: Alextait1 - 09-12-2017, 11:12 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (4)

Good evening all,

I have recently purchased an A7 special.  It has a badge attached to the chassis with "C.C.GREGORY 1992" stamped on it.

The Chassis no is 270238
Engine no M19454
Reg RVS 147 (although this may have been changed)

I understand the previous owner bought the car to restore at a Richard Edmonds auction in Aug 13.

Any further info would be much appreciated.  I have attempted to attach a few photos.  I've also slightly changed my username as I couldn't log on with my old email address.

Merry Christmas,

I am still reeling from that dreadful photograph from Holland.....however my question could be relevant.
When did Austin stop putting wires in "armoured" cable protection? there seems to have been a period when the wires were simply routed, not encased in a cloth covered loom. From when to when? any information welcomed before I start re-wiring!

  58mm pistons
Posted by: Zetomagneto - 08-12-2017, 08:17 PM - Forum: Wants - Replies (2)

Went to collect my block from boring today, unfortunately it didn't clean up at .060" and will apparently need liners, or bore to .080".
I preference the latter, does anyone have a set of 58mm pistons they would like to sell, or trade for a new unused set of .060" pistons .
Tony is out of 58mm and I don't want to spend £220 on a set from one of our other cherished suppliers before exploring other possibilities.
I do have another block at .020" but don't want to bore that to .060" it would be a waste of good metal

  Reliant Side valve engine
Posted by: Rick Pearmain - 07-12-2017, 10:11 PM - Forum: Sales - Replies (1)

I have a tuned Reliant side valve engine for sale.This engine has been extensively rebuilt .
Re ground crank,new big ends and mains,new pistons with shortened skirts,new timing chain,clutch,lightened flywheel, fully balanced.
The block has been ported with an increase in inlet and exhaust valve sizes,new valve guides, skimmed head and a 3/4 cam.There is NO carburettor,inlet manifold or exhaust manifolds available in the sale,but I do have some parts to help with such.There is also included a four speed Reliant gear box.
It is a great sounding running engine which would work for, dare I say it a Seven special or a 750 club vintage car.
I would discuss more with a seriously interested person.Iam located in Suffolk east of Ipswich.
Rick. 07519120378
