English: Austin Seven

"The space at the back of the driver's seat has intentionally been restricted so that any attempt to overload the car with too many passengers will be militated against by the discomfort attached thereto." Austin Company literature

Chummy was a generic name for a style of bodywork. At that time they were cars later described as close-coupled or having 2+2 or 2/4 bodywork in contrast to those which provided weather protection for the driver and only one passenger and would just carry their two more occasional passengers in an uncovered dickey seat. A friendly Chummy carried the two occasional passengers under the same roof as the driver.

Eventually Chummy became almost synonymous with the Austin Seven.

Variants were given generic names until the mid 1930s when some were given the model names shown in capital letters
