Austin 7 Nippy re-creation

Following on from the success of our high-quality bodies and panels for the Jaguar XK range, we have developed a Nippy-type body that will be available in steel and aluminium

The body features an entirely re-engineered bulkhead, adding significant stiffness to the whole car while decreasing the overall weight. In addition we will be offering restorers a choice of front and rear ends to customise individual builds.


  • Brand new, high-quality bodyshell. CAD-designed to create a lighter, stiffer structure
  • Mild-steel main body tub with aluminium bonnet, doors, scuttle, boot lid and wings
  • Fits directly to any standard long wheelbase Austin 7 chassis
  • Uses original Austin Ruby or Pearl saloon components

Complete bodyshell: £12,480 including VAT

  • Deposit - £2496
