Austin A40 Devon in a hill

You can just see the bit of this from a path in a park/nature reserve in Lethbridge.

The Banjo wheel gives it away as a vintage car. Looked rather Austin like to me. A closer inspection revealed it to be an Austin A40 Devon. It has been well stripped with the possible exception of the front bumper and perhaps the wiper motor. Although it doesn’t look it in the photo this is wedged in a steep part of the Coulee. Very close to down town Lethbridge. There used to be a scrapyard at this location years ago and now its a park.

These A40s where reasonably popular in Canada as they where except from import taxes as Canada was part of the British Commonwealth.
