Oil tight Austin Seven?
And then what? I suspect the owner may quickly tire of his toy.
It fitted well in your Transit Martin!
If this is not actually some extremely elaborate spoof I’m truly astonished.
An e-Minor is already running:-

I am sold on this. Does anyone know if you have any problems with DVLA. I might have the first electric Ruby. Only joking I like mine a lot nearer to the way it left Longbridge.

Would you believe it "Her who must be obeyed" refers to my Ruby as the toy.

I can see that you might fit an electric motor but not where you would stow a meaningful battery...then there's the weight...
This is the owner's fifteenth Seven, the battery pack goes in place of the rear seat, and will give a 100 mile range. He's been in touch with the DVLA and they are quite happy provided it doesn't do 0 to 60 in 2 seconds.
I have a electric car can I put a Austin 7 engine in if for fun ????
Do you think dvla will like it !
My problem I ask questions that other people don't like?
Like have you got that for an investment or for fun?
"the battery pack goes in place of the rear seat, and will give a 100 mile range"

Some interesting comments, I am very much in agreement with Martin on this. Seems one of the justifications for the conversion was the limited range of a 5 gallon fuel tank, well if Dave is correct the owner has well and truly fixed that problem!
