Austin 7 Special C.C.Gregory 1992 info

"I don't know what it is (perhaps it's just me) but the proportions always seem to look stretched on a 6'9" frame"

I believe that is because on a long chassis you need to move or extend the steering column backwards to get the balance right and avoid the stretched cockpit appearance of so many LWB specials. That is why a SWB ulster body with a long bonnet looks so much better when fitted to a LWB chassis, on my own special I extended the column by around 4" to get the scuttle in the right place.
