This Page: Volume 2 1940s Classic Cars

There are now well over 450+ classic car photographs in this photo archive, so if you're looking for classic car picture or truck photos, have a browse in the list of car photographs below .. more old car pictures added regularly. Please note: I have now split the images across a number of pages, as one page for all photos was becoming unwieldy. This page now contains images for the 1920s and 1930s vehicles only, with those from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s now having their own pages, which can be chosen from the links below.

These images are some of the many classic cars and trucks that I've seen over the years. This library of photographs is for reference only, and none of the photographs below are to be reproduced either in part or whole anywhere else, unless permission is granted by both the website author and the owner of the car/truck in the photo. Please just enjoy perusing them here as a testament to the lengths enthusiasts go to keep their classic motors on the road into the 21st century!

All these photos have been taken at classic & vintage car shows, or motor racing events, throughout the last few years. If you spot you car, and it irks you to see it on one of these pages, please let me know and I'll bin it off, or preferably credit the car to its owner. From now on, new photos will be added into the recently launched show-specific photos section - latest pics are from Oulton Park and Smallwood Vintage show.
