Austin Seven
Austin Seven

Austin Seven is one of the cultic cars of its time, being sold in edition of 290 copies. Ser Herbert Austin made the development of the model. The production of this economy and cheap car was fully his idea. The works began in August 1921. After the tests, the model was presented to the public in summer 1922. 

1922-year model was a small, quite \"Spartan\" car with the length of 2.7 m and the width of almost 1 m. The car had a lack of bourgeois extravagances such as enclosed body, which appeared only in 1926; the synchronizer in the gear box, electric starter, shock absorbers. For its cramped salon, the car was called \"Chummy\" (hinting at the fact that on the front seat can seat only good friends). The second row was not roomier. It was located almost behind the rear axle. The car was very shaky. One of the exterior particularities of the car were its front lights that were moved deeply into the front end. This solution was aimed to secure the car from the rocks because the lights were quite expensive.

The chassis of the car resembled a lot the chassis of Ford T, but was smaller. 

The engine of the Austin Seven was 4-cylinder in line, with the volume of 747 cc and the power output of 10.5 horsepower. The transmission was 3-speed. The brake system was separated: the hand brake blocked the front wheels and the pedal blocked the rear ones. 

The beginning of the sales was quite modest. Strange design, cramped salon and some falts were not promoting the success of the model. In 1926 appeared the version with the enclosed body.

In 1929 the car was redesigned. The model lined was added a 2-seat roadster.

The second generation of Austin Seven was produced between 1929 and 1935. The demand of such budget car increased in the world. Austin Seven was modernized, too. The transmission was 4-speed, with the added synchronizers. The car was easier to drive. In 1934 appeared the third generation of the car and was ended in 1939. In 1937 was created a new Austin Big Seven with the longed wheelbase and more powerful engine (900 cc).
