The new Austin 7 Sports model for the 1930s, introduced in June 1933 to replace the iconic ‘Ulster’ was named the ’65 Sports’, later ‘Nippy’. Bodywork was a low slung 2-seater with doors and a boot containing the spare wheel; the car was a less ‘out and out racer’ than the Ulster, but was considerably more civilised and easier to use on a daily basis, whilst still being well suited to sporting events. Sales proved its popularity, nearly 250 being sold in the first six months, and well over a thousand 65 and Nippy models found owners before production ceased in 1937; this compares well with about 300 Ulsters made in total. The Nippy was workmanlike, performed well in competition and found a new market (for the first time in LHD form) in Germany.
