Because of Herbert Austins approach to construction, there is no such thing as a standard Austin 7 as, from 1923, they were built in large numbers and in many different bodystyles. It is not surprising that they were often also raced at both circuit and trials. From that day to this, they are still widely enjoyed both as standard and in modified form, as this charming example represents. Originally a standard RM, this Austin was then stripped and the roof lowered by 2. Whilst it was in bare metal, it was primed and repainted in its current Lily Pad green with black wings. Things begin to get interesting, however, when you open the bonnet. Pigsty Racing, Austin 7 specialists, have uprated the engine to trials spec, with a forged Phoenix crankshaft, new crack-tested conrods and forged pistons. A modified oil system and gas flowed ports are fitted with specialist Pigsty valve springs, new guides and a cylinder head with a Pigsty trials cam-profile. The cylinder head is a modified Superloy unit with modified combustion chambers to increase flow and compression ratio. Power is then fed through a lightened and balanced flywheel and clutch assembly. New wheels by Tudor and tyres by Excelsior complete the package just in time for the Austin 7 centenary celebrations in July next year...
