Blue Austin Seven
This blue Austin Seven RL Box Saloon was one of the classic cars seen on Hyde Civic Square for the 2013 Heritage Open Day.
It was first registered in Manchester in 1930. It has a 747cc four cylinder side valve engine 12 bhp and a maximum speed of around 45 mph. It was designed to fit the same storage area as a motorbike and sidecar. For "historic" cars made pre 1973, tax is free and since November 2012 cars made before 1960 do not require an MOT.
