Picture of A55 van from Austin

Austin A55 van.

More information on this Austin:

In 1996 while visiting my Dodge in a Cheshire barn I spotted this Austin van on a nearby farm. I popped in and had a chat with the farmer - I think he said that he had owned this van from new and was still MOTd. The condition was not the best so whether this A55 Austin made it into the 21st century I am not sure. The side windows aren't original.

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 A55 van would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin A55 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 A55 van, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
