Picture of A40 Mark 2 from Austin

Austin A40 Mark 2.

More information on this Austin:

My parents photographed this sad Austin A40 Farina in Kefalonia (Greece). It looks like it had been in an accident and then dumped in a field. Judging by how the undergrowth is enveloping the car it must have sat here for some time. Note the heavily kinked roof and badly smashed bonnet. Amazingly all the A40s glass seems to survive.

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 Mark 2 would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin A40 Mark 2, 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 Mark 2, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
