More information on this Lanchester:
Not easy to identify was this 1939 Lanchester rolling chassis photo'd in 1993. Behind an old garage the long-term owner told me what it was. This and several old chassis were scrapped a few years later sadly I think.
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 Lanchester above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Saloon would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Lanchester Saloon, 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 Saloon, and similar old Lanchesters, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
