Invincible is at Farnborough, junction of Victoria Road and Elm Grove Road, where it worked on the Royal Aircraft Establishment line from 1955 until 1968 (and from 1915 until 1955 it worked at Woolwich Arsenal and is now preserved on the Isle of Wight). I take no credit for knowing, just the result of a search on the internet.

Are they aĺl at Farnborough? The long nosed D-Type was tested at the RAE at Farnborough so is the Healey Duncan photographed at Farnborough?

A30 is close, but its an A35, has large rear window, bigger engine and painted grille, although you can't see the last 2 points from this photo.

I know it's not a car but it is classic and on the road. An unusual sight outside London Bridge Station this lunch time!
