Boss this is not an original paint scheme that ever came on an Austin. Standard of work is very high but compromises the originality of the car.

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Well it is not a original colour scheme but work is of good quality and he is just restoring for his own hobby no competition i guess.

hi,
you can try for a good engine at jama masjid delhi, but mind it the prices are sky high now adays, or you may hunt and try your luck on ebay,i purchased parts during my visit to uk from A7parts uk, the gentleman deals only in austin seven parts -all new or good used,and distributor mounted on starter motor,pls double check its the distributor mounted on dynamo not starter,the starter lies near the flywheel

I have not visited the BHP site for a while and so missed this thread when it was active.

Obviously some effort has been put into the refurbishment of the vehicle -like others, I think a different shade of green might be preferable; certainly the colour shown never came from Longbridge but this is a question of personal taste.

However, what is not a matter of personal taste is the date of manufacture. It is highly unlikely that the car was made in 1929 - I would be prepared to bet that it wasn't. Much more probable is that it is a steel-bodied model from 1930/1932 and is quite different in many respects from the 1929 variant; they don't even look the same.
