Tony Press’ Meteor, Aspendale 1962 (photograph Tony Press)

Tony Press bought a very nice complete Austin Seven Meteor steel body in 1958 or 1959 and fitted it to the chassis during the early 1960's together with an Ulsterised front Axle (standard springs), a very nice alloy remote control gear lever on the original three speed Box, twin bronze updraft Zenith Carburettors and a four blade Fan. 


It is interesting to note that, unknown to Tony at the time, the house in Aspendale was located just off Laura Street, 500 metres from the site of the Aspendale Speedway, scene of many Austin Seven races pre war.
