Based in Melbourne, Australia,
The Austin 7 Club Inc.
is one of the oldest one make car clubs in the country.
An excellent source of spare parts for all Austin 7s, our own club rooms
and an active social and competition calendar make this a
very active and enjoyable club.
membership are welcome from people who reside anywhere in
Australia or Overseas- see the front page for a link.
Seven Clubrooms are located in Units 8 and 9, at 19-23 Kylie Place,
Cheltenham North, Victoria, Australia.
For the first
45 years members met in
rented premises before purchasing unit 8 in Cheltenham,
which with substantial improvements and modifications,
became the Clubs new permanent home. These Clubrooms were
opened on the 4th February 1995 - a purpose-built auditorium
with spare parts department, committee room, library and a
kitchen set up for refreshments after each meeting-
something which the members could be justifiably proud.
Club purchased the next door unit 9 in 2003 and after
renting it out, commenced
in 2013 the major project of joining unit 8 and 9, relocating our spares department to a much
larger purpose built area which was completed in 2015 and
going on to expand the meeting room.
With the opening of
the new kitchen
in late 2017, completion of the chair storage
area, carpeting and painting in 2018, the
extension to the meeting room was finished, thanks to the
excellent efforts of a large number of club members.
