Austin A90 Atlantic

Austin A90 Atlantic was a British car produced by Austin Motor Company, launched initially as a four-seater sports convertible. He made his debut at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show in London, with production models built between spring 1949 and late 1950. The sports coupe with two doors followed a year later, she was presented at the Salon of 1949 and was a driving force in the production at Longbridge between 1950 and 1952, the 1954th Atlantic should not be confused with Austin's next 'A90' model Austin Westminster.

Atlantic was one of the first postwar cars were built by Austin, and was said to be in abstract style, Leonard Lord, the then President of the Austin and then the British Motor Corporation (BMC), although the design was actually more likely to work by a resident of Austin Italian designer Dick Burzi. The car was almost certainly influenced the 1946 Pininfarina medium-bodied Alfa Romeo convertible, which happened to end up in the Longbridge factory in the middle of 1947, just months before the light blue 16 hp sports prototype made its first appearance in the experimental group and close streets around the factory.

With the edict of government and then 'Export or die' and Steel granted only to those who have generated much needed revenue in dollars, the Atlantic has been designed specifically to appeal to the tastes of Americans (some ways resembles a 1949 Mercury and a chrome hood looks like the Pontiac Chieftains at the time). The car also is doing minute-retailer, with front wings that swept up the tail rounded, enclosed rear wheels, integrated fog lamps installed a fire in the center to the model of air inbox, then unheard of luxury in the form of hydraulic windows and hood (roof), 'intermittent' (as opposed to state, for the U.S. market at least) and the possibility of EKCO radio autocrat or HMV. The top end of Austin has been offered in a variety of 'jewelescent' colors.
