|1930 Austin 7 Ulster|
Aluminium Ulster body with Girling brake modification.
The previous owner was Colin Crabbe (the ex F1 team owner) and he bought this Ulster circa 1973/4 believing it to be a genuine EA Sports 'Ulster' model. It competed in various Vintage Sports Car Club Trials and on the odd rally but has been mainly used for pleasure. The Austin's longest journey during the recent times was from South Lincolnshire to the VSCC Lakeland Trial and back. Treated to a major engine overhaul by Stuart Rolt some time ago, the past ten years have seen the car scarcely driven except for the odd pub jolly, the one notable exception being the 200 plus miles covered by the Colin's son during an Irish jaunt in 2003. Colin's wife won a ladies race in North Germany 1975 with it
Finished in black with matching upholstery, 'OX 2805' is in good condition with regard to its engine, three-speed manual gearbox, electrical equipment and bodywork, while the interior trim and paintwork are reasonable.
