That is what happened to Alice Day, when her 1938 Austin Seven Ruby, had a little restoration work done to it.
The old car had been off the road for 54 years and, was nearly blown to bits by a Nazi bomb, during World War II, but escaped the bombing raid with it's owner Alice.
|Who the **** is Alice, with her Austin 7.|
Transmission fed by 3 gears including a reverse option, and from 1933, a 4 speed gearbox became available. Wow!
Alice has now handed the car over to her daughter, Jennie Brownsdon after owning it for over 73 years.
It was bought in 1939 for the princely sum of £145.
|This racy little number will set you back £20K|
