1930 Austin Seven Swallow

In 1922, Williams Lyons and Williams Walmsley began production of their stylish sidecars in the workshops of their Swallow Motor Company. At the same time, Sir Herbert Austin launched the cheap and simple 'Seven' model to compete with the light cycle cars of the period. An Association was formed between Austin and the Swallow Sidecar Company and, although somewhat at arms' length, each firm benefitted from the association with the Swallow coachwork giving the Seven a fashionable air that wasn't available in house at Austin. The first hand formed aluminium over wood Swallow Roadster bodies appeared on the Austin Seven chassis in 1927 with the two door saloon following in 1928. The Swallow was known for its distinctive lines, colour schemes and bold, barrel like grill shell. It's estimated that Swallow produced approximately 1700 saloon bodies. With very few Austin Seven Swallow saloons remaining now, we are pleased to be able to offer one of these attractive and distinctive saloons today. Coming out of a collection, this Swallow is largely original; the interior displays its factory headlining, that has worn very well, the original seats are in good order (the front seat squab, although un-matching, fits in well) and an attractively finished dashboard and instrument set. Mechanically, the engine was rebuilt in 2000 with new cylinder sleeves, valves and big ends; the result is that this Swallow runs very well. Structurally, the Swallow appears to be excellent and a look underneath shows an exceptionally clean chassis. The coachwork is finished in the combination of navy blue over light blue. Some of the paintwork appears cracked (no doubt due to a previous repaint some years ago) but does not detract from the overall attractive look of the car. We are informed by the vendor that the original Swallow mascot is available with the car and that the Swallow will arrive at the sale with this, a current UK V5 registration document and fresh MoT test certificate. With Austin Seven Swallows becoming increasingly hard to find within the market, this must represent an ideal opportunity to acquire a rare an interesting example of the 'Seven' marque.
