1949 Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible (Fully Restored) AUCTION FINISHED
Here is a very rare & wonderful example of an Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible restored back to superb order throughout. Built in 1949, registered in the UK February 2020 with a brand new 2600cc engine you cannot find a finer example of excellence in engineering. Supplied with the car is a certificate from the ‘BRITISH MOTOR HERITAGE TRUST’ titled ‘CERTIFIED COPY OF A FACTORY RECORD’.
This lovely Atlantic was subjected to a photographic, total body off restoration and rebuild, costing many thousands, and taking many hundreds of man hours to complete. Everything from the seats to the engine has been fully restored as a nut and bolt restoration. The bodywork is now in pristine condition, and the paint finish is better than new.
The car has been fully retrimmed in biscuit leather with contrasting piping, complemented by a matching new mohair hood and carpets. The Engine was completely rebuilt with genuine parts. As you can see from the photos, she really is in showroom condition throughout, and drives as well as it looks. With only a handful of these cars left this vehicle is the best example around.
Every switch/button on the car works how it should. Every inch of the car has been finished in the most intricate way and has even been valued by the ‘Austin Counties Car Club Ltd’ to be insured to the value of £55,000.
The car really needs to be seen to appreciate is condition and the standard of work that was carried out. The underside is as clean as the top, and has been finished in the original colour.
