More information on this Austin:
An A30 and A35 sat covered in junk behind a Cheshire garage in 1992. I believe the contents of the site were sold in 2004ish so quite what happened to the two Austins here is unknown. I doubt there was much left of these Austins when they came up for sale 12 years after this photo was taken mind you!
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 Austin above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular A35 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin A35, 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 A35, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
