The original Austin 7, first introduced in 1922 was classed as an economy car produced in Great Britain by Austin. Because of its diminutive size, it was nicknamed the Baby Austin. Production lasted right up until the beginning of the War, with various specification upgrades along the way. The Austin 7 Ruby was introduced in 1936 when its restyling included a longer bonnet, cowled radiator, slightly downswept tail and the spare wheel enclosed by a metal cover, which also concealed a folding luggage rack. Over 200,000 Austin Ruby had rolled off the production line when Austin ceased production in 1939.
Now you can appreciate all this in 1:43 scale miniature registered BYV 954, decorated in dark green with black mudguards, running boards and roof panel. The curved radiator is plated in silver on black and a fine detail includes the beige suitcase perched on the rear luggage rack. Our two-door model is rounded off with spoked wheels and lots of silver trim, including door handles, semaphore indicators and bumpers.
