A two-day car boot festival packed full of classics of the 20th century is coming to King’s Cross.

The annual festival runs from 10am to 6pm on April 27 and 28 at three hotspots in Granary Square, Lewis Cubitt Square and Coal Drops Yard.

New this year is a collection of Ford Mustang muscle cars for the 60th anniversary of the machine that starred in James Bond’s Goldfinger and Steve McQueen’s Bullitt tearing across the landscape.

Other muscle cars include the Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro and SRT Hellcat.

Celebrity cars include a replica of John Lennon’s Rolls Royce Phantom with psychedelic paintwork.

The Beatles arrived in the car originally painted black for their OBE ceremony at Buckingham Palace in 1965.

“There’s no cooler gathering in Europe for the history of youth culture,” Classic Car Boot Sale co-founder Wayne Hemingway said. “We see London’s best-dressed vintage alternative crowd and a famous face or two coming to bag some unique second-hand finds.”

Mods and rockers are planning ride-ins on both days. There is a chance to be part of a national social history archive by bringing vintage objects or photos to be scanned into the Museum of Youth Culture studio, such as clothes, objects and snapshots from the past to be recorded for future generations.

Expert upcyclers are on hand to help fix vintage garments, whether they have been in the back of a wardrobe for years or picked up at the festival.

Live entertainment includes The Obscuritones and London’s hottest club scene spinning vinyl floor fillers from the Routemaster bus in Granary Square.

Shoppers can go for vintage items from charities like North London Hospice, Vision Foundation, St Joseph Hospice, Isabel Hospice, Havens Hospices, Spitalfields Crypt Trust, Shaw Trust and Age UK.

Tickets cost £7 for adults, with children under 12 free to enter.
