Description

This hillclimb special is built upon a modified 1930 Austin 7 chassis with a clear chassis number. It has the correct vintage 3 piece back axle mounted on flat 'sports style' springs coupled with sports front suspension featuring bowed axle, reversed transverse spring and lowered radius arms. The steering features the more desirable, tougher cast iron box on a steel wedge to lower the column the desired amount. The engine is of the same age, 1930, and is based on the structurally tougher "sand cast" crankcase with vintage block, stub exhaust manifold, log inlet manifold and bronze updraught Solex carburettor. It is coupled to a vintage 3 speed gearbox with gate change. The age, specification and layout of the mechanical components make this an ideal basis for a correct 'vintage' Austin 7 Ulster replica. Alternatively you could retain and improve the spartan set up it wears presently and have fun going hillclimbing and sprinting at vintage events. Having been at the back of our shed, still-born for more than a decade it has been loosely re-assembled to sell. The engine turns but has not been run in our ownership, likewise, suspension, axles and transmission will probably all need checking / fettling / rebuilding before being used in anger. Brakes are disassembled as the plan of the previous owner was to convert to hydraulics we planned to reconvert with cables and maintan that vintage feel. 0-5000rpm rev counter and air gauge and pump are the extent of driver controls. Should be fun when it is finished as is or an ideal rolling chassis with sports suspension as the basis for an Ulster Rep simply by adding an Ulster bodyshell! Viewing is highly recommended over a cup of tea! Offers very much invited.
