Pretty impressive "shed"!

I am fairly sure there was never an "Austin Morris" Atlas. Seems much more likely someone slapped a badge onto that. The badge is also too new to be authentic.

The Austin in the video is a BMC J4. The 948cc Standard Atlas was only badged as such, the Ensign-engined Atlas Major became the Standard (and then Leyland) 15, and the Standard (Leyland) 20 was an enlarged version with a 2-litre Vanguard engine.

As the founder of the Atlas Register I was fascinated to see so many survivors in one place. I have previously only ever seen two together at one time:

I have watched many videos like this on Youtube, 9 out of 10 are usually filmed without permission so its nice to see that the chap does have permission from the owner before entering.

That is a remarkable collection. Thanks for posting.

For me the ultimate barn find would be a huge collection of Veteran cars untouched for a 100years.

Cool
