1938 Austin 7 OPAL
The Austin Seven was a hugely important car, not least because it simultaneously saved its maker from collapse while mobilising an entire nation and then soon after, large parts of the world too.
The car stands as a milestone in automotive history as a result, setting the stage for decades of British car manufacturing and, in license-built (or sometimes copied) form, forming the early efforts of numerous famous manufacturers including BMW and Nissan.
The Seven was marketed as a real car in miniature and offered many families their first chance at four-wheeled car ownership. It was a tiny car even by 1920s standards with its 63" wheelbase and 46" width, but its great proportions meant it looked right and that appeal continues today.
