"Consolidated Technical Data for the Austin Seven 850"
Ref. No. TRL 14 --- Hard bound tan covers, plastic bindings
I assume this was the manual for dealers and salesmen to get them ready for the upcoming "New" Austin 7/Mini, put out by the publicity dept. at Austin. It's a large format-8"X13" that gives the technical data for all aspects of the car. There's about 20 pages of reading and data, and also 30 or more full page tech. drawings and cartoons. They were really pushing the "fun" aspect of the Mini even before it left the factory. (A rear boot large enough to carry a dead tiger and some large fish.)
They also use quotes from Admiral Lord Nelson, Roger Bacon (Circa 1260), Ralph Waldo Emerson, and of course, Leonardo da Vinci. I was told it's the folio given out at the Earl's Court debut, but I don't believe that. Sorry, no photo downloads. Please feel free to leave a comment if you know about this manual.
Price is $50 plus shipping (US only).
Thanks for looking,
