Exterior:
– Please see the video accompanying the listing, as that will provide the best look at the car.
– Paint shows very nicely, and the car was resprayed in 2006. The color is Vermilion Red, a Ford color from the 90s. There are very few blemishes.

1933 Austin Arrow Berkeley, CA eBay

CATEGORY: Austin Bantam

Looks good.

View all the information on eBay

“933 Austin 7 Arrow Roadster, but it is registered as a 1932.  The Arrow Body Works made sports bodies for a number of English cars in the 1930s. There are only a handful of Arrows left in the world. I got the car from a member of the Pacific Austin/Bantam Club in 2002,who had it since 1967. I made a few modifications, but nothing that can’t be restored. It has a tuned engine by Doug Dexter (Austin Works East). The original engine, on which I lapped the valves, is also available. The things I know of it needs now are; the brakes chatter in reverse and it pops out of first gear. All the parts,on it are Austin 7, but not necessarily the same year. I hate to sell it, but I am too old and not physically able to take care of it. I have used it for several overnight runs, and it is a delight to drive.”

View all the information on eBay

“A neat little all steel 5 window coupe with black vinyl interior, perfect for cruising in parades. This vehicle is powered by a 45.6 cubic inch 4 cylinder engine, and a 3 speed manual transmission with floor shift. It is believed that this vehicle has only had one paint job since production, and it is sure to turn heads. This car is also a memorabilia piece, with the 1934 original gasoline ration sticker still in the windshield.”

1930 Austin Bantam Inland Empire, CA $10,000

CATEGORY: Austin Bantam

Has some updates.

https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/cto/d/1930-austin-bantam-restored/6502087740.html

“This 1930 Austin Bantam has been upgraded with a new frame (I still have the original frame and will include it with purchase). The front end is narrowed Corvair suspension. The rear end is a narrowed 8″ Ford rear end. It has a Datsun engine that is quiet and runs great, but the engine smokes badly. The car smokes bad enough that it will need to be towed.
This 1930 Austin Bantam is in great condition inside and out. The car was restored a few years ago and the body work, paint, and interior is in great restored condition.”
