Austin Seven Australian Sports Roadsters

Only recently discovered these fabulous examples of Australian designed and bodied Austin Seven sports roadsters. Built on the standard Austin Seven chassis. They seem to have all originated from Sydney. The Meteor was built between 1928-29 by coachbuilder A Robinson & Co. and the Wasp model was manufactured and sold in Sydney during the late 1920s and early 1930s. The Austin Seven moth would have to be my favourite ….. what a great looking roadster. There were only nine built between 1929 and 1931 by George Sykes Bodyworks in Chatswood, Sydney.

    Nice pictures but I’m afraid the red car identified as a Wasp Sports is actually a very nice Meteor without the usual cowl. I own a Wasp; the tail is different, more like a shorter Standard Sports rather than the “bumble bee” shape of Meteors. Most Wasps have front guards coming straight back and down from the top of the wheel and, importantly, they had a cowl similar to the white Meteor. The cowl was flatter and more concave in profile than the Meteor. In addition, the scuttle does not have the high flair that most Meteors have.
