Austin A40 Somerset Saloon - Classic Car Metal Print
Ships within: 5 to 7 business days
This classic car metal print features an Austin A40 Somerset Saloon. This classic British car was built but the Austin Motor Company from 1952 through 1954. This post-war years car was built when the company operated under the name "Austin Of England." This artwork was done for a competition where the entries were based on the same photo by Abbie Shores. Although the car in her photo was black, I looked at some of the vintage colors for the Austin A40 and decided to go with a two-tone red paint style. This is contrasted with a cool blue background that is a mixture of light that suggests movement. The end result is a fun view of a classic British car driving through a rainy night on the city streets somewhere in Britain.
I've said before I love the design of the classic cars of the last century - particularly the mid-century ones. The sweeping lines of the Austin A40 Somerset Saloon were definitely an inspiration for this artwork. I'd love to hear what you think about it and what drew you to this particular classic car metal print? Love old cars in general or do you have special memories of the Austin A40?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!

Metal Prints - Product Information
Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.
The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.
Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 5 to 7 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.
The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.
