More information on this Austin:
This stately Austin Limo from the 1950s was in a terribly sad state when seen in '95. Parked forlornly in a scrapyard it looks like this Princess had supped its last champagne. The headlights are gone and the once proud grille is all tarnished and dented.
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 Princess would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin Princess, 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 Princess, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
