Homepage. This page: A period colour photo of Carnaby Street in 1966, featuring classics including a Healey 3000.

Austin-Healey 3000.

Thanks to Kevin for this photograph of a 1964-registered Austin-Healey 3000, and a selection of less sporting classics, one sunny day in London, 1966. The location is Carnaby Street, in the days before becoming a pedestrianised area, at the height of the "swinging sixties". Kevin's father had taken the family to London for a holiday, and this was one of the snaps he took which just happened to feature a groovy Austin-Healey in it.

Classic Austin Healey 3000 in London
Other classics in view include a Bedford HA van, to the far left of this scene. Slightly further away the owner of a Wolseley 16/60 has parked up to do a spot of shopping, perhaps for some special items on sale in the "Mans Shop"? Two Hillmans are next in line, a rear-engined Imp and a Minx saloon, with not a single example of a foreign car in sight.
