Austin A40 Farina.
More information on this Austin:
Dumped on land belonging to my other half's mother in Portugal is this Mk1 A40. Partly covered by the hedge and rotting merrily away it is doubtful that this particular Austin survived much longer. I must find out as I have a Mk1 in a similar colour!
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 Farina would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin A40 Farina, 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 Farina, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
