The Austin 7 AP D Tourer was built in small numbers (approx. 200) for use in the defence ministry (British Army) due to its light weight and size, slim tyres and good ground clearance (all terrain use) , reliable quiet engine and gearbox which could comfortably travel at 40 mph. Various uses including the transport of munitions, supplies, scout car with some having machine guns attached. Used quite successfully during the battle of Normandy for disrupting communications. The current owner bought the car from a retired engineer who with his two sons specialised in Austin 7 race and rally cars. This car obviously had some mechanical attention undertaken to it by them as the engine and gearbox were in fine order with some upgrades like a screw on oil filter, SU carburettor, and an uprated compression ratio. He has now owned the car for 13 years in which time he undertook his own restoration works to the car to include mechanical attention to the rolling chassis, the painting of the bodywork, a retrim in a dark tan, a re-wire to include an upgrade to 12 volts and the addition of some indicators. All works undertaken to high standard. In addition, some modifications to the large boot area making it a lockable for those car club trips to France plus the fitting of a Luggage rack for that extra space. Periodic service and maintenance works have also been carried out. The car runs and drives very well, comes with a hood bag, side screens and a fold away hood making it relatively water tight. A comprehensive file accompanies the car detailing all works recently undertaken along with some boxes of spares parts and travel spares. Additional pictures car be emailed and the car is located in the Island of Guernsey. Import tax may apply (5% into the UK) and transport costs.
