With the cancellation of the Geneva International Motor Show, we thought we’d do the next best thing and bring you some wonderful imagery from the London Motor Shows between 1970 and 1974.
Again, thanks to Shahin of the PaykanHunter website (and regular of Autoshite), who put in some serious hours scanning a selection of amazing transparencies, we now have some stunning images from a selection of press days at the UK’s premier motor show. This was probably a golden era in one respect – the marque and model selection was far wider than it is now, even though the motor industry was in an appalling mess at the time – globally.
Seriously enjoy these images, none of which will have been seen before – unless, that is, you’re a regular of the above-named forum or you’ve recently clicked on our Maxi-based Aquila story, which is now headed by one of Shahin’s wonderful images. Interestingly, it was this image that revealed a choice of wheels for this car previously unseen in contemporary images..
Enjoy the images!
