Austin Ulster

A few days ago I was taken for a spin in this fully restored very valuable 1931 Austin Ulster, thought to be the only one in New Zealand. Here it is parked at St Bathans.

Developed from the famous Austin 7, it has a 750 cc twin carburettor engine. No doors, and an exhaust that runs alongside the passenger ending in a very stylish fishtail alongside the pointed rear. Altogether an enchanting ultracute car. I want one!
