Are classic cars exempt from the London Congestion Charge?

I'm looking to buy a 1960 Morris Minor. I live in Central London. I understand that cars over 40 years old are exempt from the ULEZ, however, I can't find any information on whether or not I'd have to pay the congestion charge. Do you know?

Hi Andy, I don't believe there's an exemption for historic vehicles in regards to the Congestion Charge, though there is for the ULEZ - like you say. You can see all the exemptions and discounts here: tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/congestion-charge/discoun...s
