AUSTIN SEVEN SWALLOW

2-seater sports, 2-seater hardtop coupé, sports saloon.

What William Lyon did to the Seven - with pen-nib colour separation (on saloons), scuttle ventilators, round-nose radiators and bulbous tails (two-seaters, coupés). Untuned, always short chassis and plated radiator shells, but mechanical changes as for standard cars, ie coil ignition '29, coupled brakes mid '30, centre bar to radiator on '31s and '32s.
