1955 Austin A90 West­min­ster

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

When it comes to West­min­sters, it’s the later, big A110 Fa­rina that many peo­ple usu­ally think of. But its A90 pre­de­ces­sor was not only hand­some and wellap­pointed, it could be pretty rapid, too, as shown in archive footage of Bri­tish sa­loon car rac­ing. The A90 was good on ral­lies, too, with its com­fort­able in­te­rior ac­com­mo­dat­ing a crew of three – and their duf­fel coats – and it could pick up its skirts and run as well as any Ford Ze­phyr or Zo­diac MkII. Char­ter­house’s pleas­ingly un­der­stated ex­am­ple, in black and sport­ing a pair of spot­lights, has a very con­ser­va­tive es­ti­mate.
