Ah yes, the model-T of the British auto market.
Yep, I think that one particular 77 car has been at the top
of a lot of the lists Brian. I believe it's based on a '30 Austen 7
and is now somewhere in California.
Nice thing about the Austin 7 is, it's dang near already sized
to our CK dimensions. Just a tad more scaling down gets you
on target.
The early ones from the factory weighed in under 800 lbs, had a
WB of 76" and 40" tread, which by the 30's was stretched out to
an 82" WB.

Mutt needed to take me out for a tour of the campus. Started to
warm up a milk as a sedative when we got back and I made the
mistake of waking up my confuser, which sits next to the fridge
in the kitchen.
But....I'm all played out now, so.....off to dream land.

I'm thinking in terms of a ply monocoque A7 nippy after the Morgan is built, looks ideal to me.

Certainly is the ideal candidate for a CK Chris. Not very racy in the stock form but cute .
The body would be relatively simple to build, and even the original frame design could
be adapted quite easily to a CK
When they're turned into a special they remind me of our midgets, just a lot more low
slung. And as I once read, 'An Austen 7 special can be whatever you want it to be.
When you think about the original flathead engine, heck, it only put out about 1/2 to 1/3
the power that a lot of the street bikes come stock with today.

How true that is DG. How ever happy to report that it is all but finished and is now looking like a 'shop' with all my tools etc, the engine and TAV (?) CVT, some steel stock and other parts. We now have enough battery powered tools for 3 tech's to be involved. This coming week I will set up the welder and plasmer cutter.
I had a set back in my funds due to a 'hidden charge' for my crates, so it will take another month to be able to order the wheels. I will do a kind of a mock up next week and see what reaction I get. It is just for fun guys.

Brian, I think I need to start a build page here, but as there are a couple of 'Austin Seven' headings, I may have to think of a name for my build page, journal

Stay warm and safe, feed the 'hot Pig' if you have one . . . . smiling smiley
