Austin A90 Atlantic Coupe

car description

£11950 or near offer First Registered on the 1st April 1951 and known to the club for approx. 30 years, this rare un-restored car has recently been removed from long-term storage. The car has not been on the road since the 1970’s, it is in highly original condition in the original factory black paint, with small areas of light surface rust, most of which would disappear with the application of an oily rag. Designed by Austin for the American Market during the "export or die" push in the late 1940's early 1950's. The Atlantic was unfortunately not a success in the US and was only produced in limited numbers. Donald Healey utilized many of the surplus parts for his new sport car the Austin Healey 100/4. The Austin Healey shares many parts from the Austin Atlantic to include the engine fitted with twin SU’s and 100/4 running gear. Not so many have survived over the years, there being only approximately thirty known to exist in the UK, and a hundred across the world to include the convertibles. An extremely complete and original A90 Atlantic that has just emerged from long term storage, there is a certain amount of recommissioning to take place prior to putting the car back on the road
