Australian bodied 1937 Ruby - owner Sandra and Ken Hislop

This beautifully restored Ruby belongs to Sandra and Ken Hislop of Adelaide, South Australia. Ken purchased the car in Victoria in July 1991 as a basket case restoration project. The project was completed in January 1994. Ken succeeded in becoming a concourse finalist in the 1994 Bay to Birdwood Run with this car, the first Austin Seven to reach this standard in this event. The car features an interesting "dicky" seat, shown in the photo to the right. Since restoration, the car has travelled over 2,000 miles on numerous runs, the longest being a 16 days Austin Seven tour of Tasmania.
