Austin 7 Pearl Cabriolet – Private Sale

Based on the Ruby, which appeared in August 1934, the Pearl Cabriolet was an attractive and versatile model which offered the convenience and comfort of a saloon, but with an opening roof which could be easily operated and used in either half way or fully open positions.

The Austin 7 conquered the word of family motoring in the 1920s and 1930s and democratised motoring for the masses. The early spindly cars gave way to a more mature, fuller-bodied look in the late ‘30s with the later cars being given the names of semi-precious stones: Ruby, Opal, Pearl.

First registered in October 1937, the early history of this Pearl is not known, but has been owned by the same family since 1991. It was bought in that year as a present by a very generous husband for his dearly beloved, who, however, did not share her spouse’s enthusiasm for the car.

Nothing daunted, the husband handed the car over to Worcester Classic Cars Ltd and spent over £13,300 on its restoration, which was completed by the turn of the century. There is a file of invoices, photographs and details of the work carried out at this time.

The car was then given to the owner’s twin grandsons in 2015, as a 21st birthday gift, but has seen little use in the past four years and has been kept in storage for most of that time.. It is now offered for sale having covered virtually no mileage since its restoration
