1932 Austin 7 RP De-Luxe Saloon

A very smart example; fresh professional repaint; lovely interior; for light recommissioning after a couple of years off the road

The Austin RP saloon embodied a number of important improvements over the outgoing RN. Principal of these were the addition of a rear petrol tank, which also meant an engine-driven petrol pump was required. On the inside, the RP is easily distinguised from earlier models by the new dash layout, with the instruments grouped in a panel behind the steering wheel.

This very smart example has been with our vendor since the early 1970s and has been restored to near concours condition by the experienced Austin Seven owner/enthusiast. There are no modifications, although it carries a spare wheel cover and handly luggage carrier at the rear. It has been rewired with armoured cable and sits on five matching Dunlop tyres.

Within the last year or two, it has undergone a full wings off, doors off, sliding roof out bare metal respray in two-pack green and black paint, leaving a beautiful quality finish. This is reputed to have cost £3,500. Last running a couple of years ago, there are a few jobs to finish such as headlight wiring and sorting the charging circuit to finish the car off completely, but little more than a fresh battery and a few weekend's work we understand.
