Where do I find out what my new Austin 7 was originally made as? It's a 1931 vintage, and currently has a hillclimb body on it.Rod

have you got a car number tag?
It may indicate there are records still at Gaydon....

A 'hello', a 'please' and a 'thanks for any help available', from a new visitor might also help persuade long term members to spend some of their time offering help.
Or perhaps its's just me being old fashioned.

You are not being old fashioned Andy, just polite.

As Jon said the tags would help, but I imagine as a special, the only thing to go on would be the chassis number and that really would only confirm it’s age.

if the chassis number is within certain bounds i.e if its B1 or B3, the full supplied spec exists.

Ah, that’s good news, I thought the specs were only available up to 1930, I’ll have to brush up on my A7 knowledge!

Couldn't agree more Andy,
I have often found that a modicum of humility often encourages a more favourable response.

Hello Rod, you might find the Austin Seven clubs ascociation chassis register 'quote this number' information sheets of interest, it lists the chassis number ranges for which better records are held and also much detail on other dated parts.

[Only registered and activated users can see the links Click here to register] otherwise search Austin seven quote this number and you'll find your way to it.

There is a car listed on eBay currently [Only registered and activated users can see the links Click here to register], one of the photos shows the type of document you would receive if the chassis is within the ranges held by Gaydon motor museum, for a small fee.
