More information on this AEC:
A number of AECs were behind this garage in Wales. The photograph was taken in 1995 after I'd had a chat with the owner of the garage. From memory he had a Morris Minor or two and a rare Trojan if I recall correctly.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic AEC above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Matador would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old AEC Matador, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Matador, and similar old AECs, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
