AUSTIN BIG 7

2-door saloon, 4-door saloon.

An infelicitous attempt to bridge the gap between Seven and Ten. The swept tail (full of spare wheel) isn't displeasing, there are no running boards and steel spoke wheels are standard, but apart from the full Girling brakes (always on this one) chassis engineering is Baby Austin. It has 6-volt electrics and it's as rustprone as the contemporary Ten. There are better Austins.
