“Josephine” was first registered on 22 December 1937 in Worcester and whilst much of it’s early history has been lost it is known that since the early 50’s it has resided exclusively in the west country. These little Austins never fail to put a smile on the faces of passers-by. This one is regularly used on club runs, shopping trips or more often just for fun.
Recent improvements include: A two bearing engine, JP pistons, SU carburettor, gearbox overhauled, electrics changed from 6 volt to 12,  new alternator, new king pins.

Auctioneers notes: This is a cracking little car, part of the jewel series, Ruby Pearl and Opal. She is very rare and is in excellent order it is estimated that there a fewer than 100 left. May be viewed by appointment.
