1929 Dixi: David Mawby

David is a long-time collector of Austin Sevens and fancied getting an unusual variant of the British classic - so he found himself a Dixi!

This 1929 Dixi caught David's eye in June 2014 thanks to its originality and he loves its charismatic details and patina.

The car also has an interesting history, appearing to have been used during wartime as there is evidence of military 'olive' paint under the current cream colour. What's more this is a 'DA2' Dixi, which signifies that it was made after BMW had fully absorbed Dixi production.
