Austin 7 Ruby
Registered in Belfast in February 1937, this late model ARR type Ruby has a sidevalve 17bhp 747cc engine, 4 speed gearbox (synchromesh on 2nd/3rd/top) and cable operated drum brakes. The car spent many years around the north coast and was previously restored in 1970. I had the coachwork restored and engine rebuilt in 2005: it has done 1500 miles since. Top speed is said to be 53mph but I never take this one over 40!!
