austin-seven, 1959
From old survivor ...

The job has just been done.

In order to boost the Mini-feeling at NedCar, BMW has restored a truly Dutch barn find.

The 1959 employee Austin Seven with chassis number 983 is one of the thirty made in the NL production run by Car Companies, who converted them to the left and sent them to the left.

The Seven woke up kissed after slumbering in a barn for 25 years. Five NedCar people have been working on it for six months to make it completely okay again….


to ZGAN again. Or better yet.

A nice gesture from the people of BMW ... The link between past and future. Between classic and modern.
