This delightfully original Austin 7 RN Saloon was first registered on the 20th July 1932. JY 646 retains its original 'buff' logbook, original colours and registration mark. The RN was the first saloon on the long wheel base chassis and the bodywork was of pressed steel with a raised waistline and doors were wider, without the wheel arch encroaching upon them.
We sold this very useable example to a customer in Somerset back in 2010 and since then the car has been improved with over £1700 worth of expenditure. The majority of expenditure has been on the engine and this included new block crankcase studs, new oil baffles, new head core plugs and new manifold, downpipe exhaust and cylinder head gaskets. The engine was flushed out and the sump and oil galleries cleaned out. The camshaft was re-positioned, and new cam bush retaining bolt fabricated and fitted. The Austin has been regularly serviced and has been covering low mileage, taken mainly on short local journeys.
This very charming example is a lovely driver with a strong, great sounding engine. JY 646 is great fun on the road and is a real pleasure to drive. The bodywork and paint are of a very good standard with only minor imperfections expected on a vehicle that has not needed any paintwork for some time. The car presents well and the paint has a lovely, deep shine. The inside of the car is delightful with beautifully aged upholstery that does have a nice patina.
We are pleased to offer this very collectable, usable RN at an attractive price.
