AUSTIN A90 ATLANTIC CONVERTIBLE

4-seater convertible.

Aimed at an unappreciative US marker which didn't want an abbreviated four-cylinder at Buick prices, despite all those Idianapolis long-distance records. Coil front springs, gold-lettered instruments, column shift, a power-top option, and even plated Pontiac-style strakes down the beetling bonnet. Heavy brakes and awful handling.
