From Grand Theft Wiki

Like Grand Theft Auto 1, players are given the option of choosing one of out eight protagonists in both Grand Theft Auto: London, 1969 and Grand Theft Auto: London, 1961, each having their own default full name (which the player can change), but otherwise have very little difference in gameplay aside varying colors of clothing (aside the bell-bottom pants they wear in GTA London 1969, which distinguish them from the GTA 1 and GTA London 1961 renditions).

Unlike GTA 1 and unlike GTA London's in-game depiction of other characters, the protagonists are depicted with hand-drawn, stylised art direction appropriate for the 1960s setting the game is set in, and appearing solely as Caucasian men in 1960s fashion and hairstyles. The appearance of certain characters are also based on various real-life celebrities as they appeared around the time.

Jones' long-haired and thick-bearded appearance appears to be inspired by the hippie sub-culture.
Rodney Morash

Seemingly inspired by the Mod sub-culture, Morash is by far one the more frequently featured protagonists from the game, having been additionally illustrated in another artwork for the game, holding a shotgun and uttering "Don't mess." in a speech bubble. The aforementioned artwork has also been adopted for use as a Rockstar Games Social Club user avatar, the only one to represent the "Grand Theft Auto: London" category.
Sid Vacant

His name and appearance are based on the Sex Pistols guitarist Sid Vicious. The band released a song titled "Pretty Vacant" which explains his last name.
