1950 Austin A90 Atlantic Sports Saloon For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 21 September 2019. Estimate:€20,000 - €30,000 Delivered new to PortugalRetains its original engineTastefully restored in Silver with a black roof over grey leather The A90 Atlantic was Austin’s post-war attempt at an upscale model for America. Derived from the A70 Austin Hampshire, it had a 2,660 cc version of the OHV four-cylinder engine fed with twin SU carburetors. Transmission was a column-shifted four-speed. Initially a drophead coupe, it was joined by a fixed-head sports saloon in January 1950.This sports saloon was supplied new to Lisbon and is accompanied by its original registration documents. It has remained in Portugal ever since and retains its original number plate. Restored roughly 20 years ago in silver paint with a black leatherette-covered roof, it has matching grey leather upholstery piped in red. The engine compartment is tidy and correctly detailed. Other features include flush-mounted trafficators, a heater, and the standard hydraulic power windows. Of 7,981 Atlantics built through 1952, only about 350 found homes in the United States. As a result, a good number, like this one, were sold in Continental Europe; however, few are available today with a known history from new.Entregue novo em PortugalMantém o motor originalRestaurado com gosto, em cinza prata e tejadilho preto, com interior em pele cinzentaCom o A90 Atlantic a Austin visou o segmento dos veículos de gama alta do mercado americano no pós-Guerra. Baseado no A70 Austin Hampshire, estava equipado com uma versão de 2660 cc do motor de quatro cilindros, com válvulas à cabeça e dois carburadores SU. A transmissão era feita através de uma caixa de quatro velocidades com comando na coluna de direção. Lançado inicialmente como um descapotável, a versão fechada, designada Sports Saloon, chegou em janeiro de 1950.Este exemplar foi entregue novo em Lisboa e é acompanhado pelos documentos originais de registo. Permaneceu em Portugal desde então e mantém a sua matrícula original. Restaurado há cerca de 20 anos em cinza prata, com o tejadilho revestido a pele sintética preta, tem o interior em pele cinzenta correspondente, sublinhada com rebordo vermelho. A baía do motor está limpa e corretamente detalhada. Outros destaques incluem setas indicadoras de mudança de direção, um aquecedor e os vidros nas portas com assistência hidráulica, que faziam parte do equipamento de série.Dos 7981 Atlantic construídos até 1952, apenas cerca de 350 foram vendidos nos Estados Unidos. Como tal, muitos deles, incluíndo este exemplar, foram vendidos na Europa. Todavia, muito poucos estão disponíveis atualmente, sobretudo com história conhecida desde novos.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
