Picture of A40 from Austin

Austin A40.

More information on this Austin:

Viewed from the side the appalling state of this A40 Farina in a Lymm scrapyard can be seen. Sadly this yard was cleared some years ago and the land sold for housing re-development. Sob. I'm glad that I took these photos in 1993 when I could as a testimony to how interesting scrapyards could be before Europe got involved.

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 A40 would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin A40, 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 A40, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
