0.64 to the Canadian dollar, that makes about 2 grand for a 1934ish Austin Seven Type ARQ 'Export' Ruby Saloon. Rare as rocking horse manure over here, and probably the same over there. Add shipping probably too rich for me . shame 'cos it looks like a good 'un with all the mechanicals done, dunno what the interior is like but a bit of paint and you have a real jewel Please remember BLACK WINGS (FENDERS) ONLY, they NEVER left the factory any other way until about 1938.

I've always loved the looks of both the 2-doors and the roadsters. I know the roadsters make a T-Bucket seem roomy, but I've always wondered how the 2-doors compared to a T-Bucket for interior space....especially width wise.

Lots less! There is one I put together back a few pages for a customer of mine, and now that it is up and running he is wondering what he was thinking by building something this small. Cool though, and my 6'1" and 195 lbs with long legs and arms (Swedish Orangatan!) fits okay, but I wouldn't consider it more than a bop around town car.

Thanks for the info. I guess like the roadster, it would be another one that would have to be built as a single seater....LOL

Here are some more pictures of the 32 Austin I built.

With the narrowed 32 Ford windshield folded down.



Clamp on Windshield wiper trying to figure out what color to paint her.


With the rigid mounted front fenders the day she left.

I used to own a 32 myself and let it go to a guy in WV! Never saw the car again! Suct! However I just purchased a 1932 Austin Truck which is way rarer than the coupes! Found it in a barn loft in southern Tennessee and had to buy it before someone else discovered this super rare truck!

Sorry for the spam , but I do have my client's car in the classified for sale. It needs detailing and a better set of wheels, but it's a damn nice car to drive...
