A Hampshire Woody


Ah, a nice shot of the rear of an Austin A70 Hampshire Countryman parked up in Bristol Road South in Birmingham in 1964.

“Woodie, Woody, Shooting Brake, Break Bois…  Whatever name you choose to use, vehicles with wood bodies possess style and character missing in today’s robotically built steel vehicles.”  So says the Old Woodies website.  Don’t you just love the internet?  There’s something for everyone!  There’s also an owners’ club – The Woodie Car’ Club.

This photo comes from an archive of Birmingham photos called Photos by DJ Norton.
