For absolutely no other reason than I wanted it, I bought this cut-away gearbox. I also have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with it. The owner thought it might be an Austin 7 but it is not.

Markings: 7N-7006, 16N, 7.W, F5 in various places

If it is going to displace a pottery dog on the mantlepiece I should at least be able to tell her what it is.

Help me give it a name.

Looks like a torque tube goes on the back end, is it the same as Clarry's?

My first jaloppy was a 1938 Austin big 7.

The back end sorta looked familiar (I think).

Hang on a minute

The Austin was a 4 speed.....That is a 3 speed.

I shall now go for a Ford 10 CWT van .

The same box was used with 8 & 10 hp donks ( Anglia...Prefect & others.)

The Austin 7's had a three speed box for the first 10 years of production but completely different bell housing.

I thought some little 30's English Ford as well but everything I can find on Google is different. Most of the post-war tiddlers have extensions to bring the stick to the rear (Morris Minor etc)

It could be completely out of left field - something like a FIAT or Peugeot?

I think Billy P and fsx80 are on a winner. Here is the Ford 10hp (Prefect etc) box. Mine does not have the dipstick and the support is different but apart from that it looks real close. Maybe one of those little Fordson off-set engine vans?

Calling Bugly. Do you need a spare air-cooled gearbox? Just looked at your Fordson restoration and it looks damn close to me!
