A couple of interesting cars coming up at WB & Sons the first week of December

https://wbandsons.com/catalogue-4th-dec ... ort=latest


First up is this nice looking 1960 Austin Seven. It looks like a sympathetic restoration has been done.

Second is this low mileage '73 Clubman Saloon. Asking price looks a little steep to me, but it is good usable condition.

You'd at least put 10" wheel on it.
I don't think the colour scheme is too bad, but not with that interior!

Quoted chassis number is A-A2S7-9*****A. So I guess it's not what it is.

It certainly isn't a 1967 car of either UK OR Australian origin. It's a few years earlier than that. A real bitza isn't it!

Another car that someone could potentially pay to much for from the description then, seen it so many time when people turn up at shows saying they have X / Y or Z car when it's not and they are none the wiser until something gets said (just in the course of normal conversation) about it not being what they think it is.

Lower case S on bonnet, looks like a Radford colour scheme with waist trim! and I think the tread on the tyres suggest 12" wheels. 1st registered 2017?
Oh dear. Caveat Emptor!
