How much would an Austin A90 Atlantic, in need of much repair work, be worth?
I am the daughter-in-law and also executor of a man that passed away in November last year. He has on his lawn an Austin A90 Atlantic which is very much in bad repair and will need an awful lot of restoration. People keep asking to purchase it from us, but we are totally stumped as to what it's actually worth in the state it's in. It still has the original headlamps but, as a recent man who asked to buy it stated, he was not sure if it could even be restored with the state it was in. Could you please tell me what price I should be looking at realistically for it?

I'm afraid that we're not able to give you a value on a specific car, but we can offer some advice. Austin A90 Atlantics are quite scarce with very few coming up for sale. Prices for good ones can run into five figures with convertibles commanding a higher price than saloons - however projects are worth substantially less. No matter how poor the condition is, if it is a complete car (engine, gearbox etc etc) it is worth some money. Perhaps the best thing to do is speak to the Austin Counties car club (www.austincounties.org.uk/). They will be able to offer you a guide price (free of charge) if you're able to supply some pictures and some more information.
