That looks like an Austin badge on the radiator. The car could be a special based on a circa 1933-34 Austin.

Itís an Austin badge, agreed. Then the difficulties start.

The Austin Seven pre Ruby radiator has an external filler cap, in this case fitted with a Calormeter. It appears to be an addition, stuck in front of another radiator, with another filler cap. Why?

The windscreen resembles the two part vertically split type fitted to the EK or AEK Speedy, but not exactly. The castings supporting the glass look quite professional. The Speedy did not have a slab tank as shown here. Iím not sure whether 1934 isnít a year or so too late, but then again, Iím not sure about much from what can be seen. It is obviously a small car, but is it a very small car as would befit an Austin Seven?

For the time being Iím going to post it as a 1934 Austin Seven Special, but am open to suggestions in respect of changing this.

Is there a view of the wheels and/or the front suspension? I have my doubts about virtually everything to do with this car, even to the extent of its maker, any more information would be of help.

Just the following, it only appears briefly as a stand-in for /vehicle_1670889-Austin-Seven-Special-1931.html for whatever reason.

Thank you for this. I donít think itís any A7. There appear to be spring shackles showing in the rear view. The A7 had quarter elliptic back springs, not semi elliptic. Regrettably I cannot see enough of the front suspension to say any more than that the wheels look too big.
