Can somebody tell me please, what is the purpose of the two tiny holes on the upper edge of the wheels. Is it to let out any water that may get inside of the tyre.

  Anyone recognise this special?
Posted by: Mike Costigan - , 03:10 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (1)

A real long shot, but does anyone recognise this car? An enquiry has come from Greys of Ely; the present MD's grandfather built the car before the War, and wonders whether it has survived. In all probability it didn't survive the War, and even if it did it probably disappeared in the 1950s, but just in case ...

Good evening all, I’d be obliged if I could pick your respective brains over my Austin 7.I’ve just bought the car and intend to enter VSCC trials (the car has a history of entries) The previous owner had the engine bores honed and new pistons and rings fitted and suggests that I need to run the car in for 700 miles? Can anyone tell me if this is correct ? I’d also appreciate further advice with regard to making space in the cockpit.As is I can fit in the car but it is uncomfortable,it has a 15ins steering wheel that rubs on the top of my legs,is there a smaller wheel ? Or is it possible to buy a steering wheel boss to fit an aftermarket wheel? Or can I cant the steering column up to lift the steering wheel? I’ve seen alloy wedges to alter the steering column ,but presume they are lower the wheel for racing sevens.Thanks in advance, regards Peter. I’ve attached a photo


Here’s the car
