WHy it Mat­ters

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Longbridge Classics To Be Proud Of -

The British car that re­ally brought af­ford­able motoring to the masses, the Seven put Long­bridge on the map. the Austin Seven was just that. This baby saved the Austin Mo­tor Com­pany and Long­bridge, and was also the first truly af­ford­able British car to buy and run. For vir­tu­ally the price of a mo­tor­cy­cle com­bi­na­tion came a car ca­pa­ble of 50 – and that fig­ure is for both mph and mpg. Very much a scaled-down larger ma­chine than a cheaply-built piece of aus­ter­ity, the Seven was avail­able in ev­ery­thing from ‘Top Hat’ saloon form to sporty Ul­ster two-seater.
