Austin A40 Devon van.
More information on this Austin:
Seen from the front the parlous condition of this derelict car can really be seen. A40 Devon vans are rare nowadays but this one is 30 years past being restorable! Whats that in the background too? A 100E Popular or Anglia perhaps? Thanks to David K for supplying this picture.
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 Devon van would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin A40 Devon 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 A40 Devon van, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
