Italian-influenced, futuristic 1950s sporting Austin two-door in need of some TLC.

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • Launched in 1949, the A90 Atlantic was by far the most flamboyant model in the otherwise staid Austin range
  • The retro-futuristic styling (art deco with a rocket age twist) was penned in-house by Ricardo 'Dick' Burzi
  • US-influenced styling cues including five chrome strips running down the bonnet, a built-in centre spot lamp, a "Flying A" mascot on each front wing and rear-wheel spats
  • Powered by the same torquey 2.6-litre four-cylinder engine that later found fame in the Austin-Healey 100/4
  • Ex-Paco Pena, world-famous Spanish flamenco composer and guitarist. Sold by him in 2005
  • Most recent MOT in 2012, lots of old magazines etc. from the forties and an old AUTOCAR booklet

You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 11th and 17th September. Please contact Gary Dunne on 07740 946 796 / gary@classiccarauctions.co.uk to secure your appointment or to discuss the car in more detail.
