Austin A35 van.
More information on this Austin:
This grey/white van had been sat in this scrappie for a long long time. It would have been worth carefully cutting out the rear solid side panels so that a running van with windows could be converted back to standard form. This Austin A35 didn't stand much chance of restoration though - note the cut off front wings and kinked roof gutter.
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 van would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin A35 van, 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 van, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
