Author: L.M.(Bill) Williams, Hardbound, 160 Pages, ISBN: 9780854291151, 1964 Reprint - Second-Hand book in excellent condition !
The specialist Austin Seven engineer "Bill" Williams, was formerly with the Austin Motor Company, and was then for some 30 years the enthusiastic proprietor of "Cambridge Engineering" of Kew Green, Surrey, the almost world-renowned company dealing exclusively with the building, tuning and supply of standard and special parts for Austin Sevens. Mr. Williams, having recently retired, has been persuaded to perpetuate his encyclopaedic knowledge of the car in book form.
Here, then, is the complete special builders' manual containing invaluable advice on the identification and choice of the most suitable engines and chassis for rebuilding, together with tuning know-how never before obtainable.
Mr. Williams' experience of designing and building chassis and bodies, of handling them himself in trials, hill-climbs and track events and his experience of the design and quantity production of special parts makes him a veritable oracle on the Austin Seven Special.
The peak of his own achievement is fittingly and convincingly displayed in his latest creation for his own personal transport which may be seen illustrated between pages 144 and 145.
"This is an excellent book, of value and absorbing interest to all lovers of the pre-war Austin Seven and particularly to those who crave extra performance from these famous and long-lived cars. . . . For such enthusiasts Bill Williams' book is going to prove indispensable . . . detailed and comprehensive data on all aspects of the standard Seven down the years and how to convert it into a better motor car. Altogether, as good a book as you could wish to find on a specialised subject."
