One person’s classic might not be another person’s choice. The enduring models from the 20th century range from
small beauties like the Baby Austin to the powerful Mercedes-Benz roadsters to luxury Porsches and BMWs. The
Mustang has a strong fanbase and the Volkswagen Beetle is one of the longest-lasting models ever produced.
In researching the classiccarsforsale, there were numerous top ten lists and most of them were not the same.
However, a pattern has emerged. But first, let’s take a look at how to find and buy a classic. One of the first
steps is to determine exactly what you want. While it is possible to browse the classic cars for sale and see what
you like, you have an edge if you a clear idea of what you want and why you want it. Are you a Cadillac lover or a
Maserati fan? A collector? A hobbyist who loves restoration projects? Maybe you want to drive a wonder car from
If you plan to buy one for the road, then you will have to think about things like how many doors, sedan or
convertible, boot space, and how many seats will meet your needs. Many people have a sense of the model and make
that intrigues them. Whether you plan to drive it and restore it and keep it for display, you have to have a plan
for its proper protection against the elements.Again, this decision depends on whether you want a smooth classic
ride or the complete restoration experience.
Once you decide to go car hunting, be prepared to check the car’s condition regardless of whether you plan to
fix or drive the automobile. If there are rust spots or damaged or missing parts, the restoration could be a lot
more challenging (and expensive) than you could imagine. Depending on the model, finding suitable parts could be
almost impossible. Performance parts might not even exist or be so rare that the cost is exorbitant. There are
parts locator services that can assist in finding what you want for your classic vehicle. Also, you should see if
there are body shops in your area that can provide the service that you need.
There is a rating system that helps you figure out what is available. The ratings run from parts to excellent,
with poor, good and very good condition in between. If you are willing to search, you can in time find any car you
want. You can reach out across the entire United Kingdom or even further in your search. It is a great idea to
check with trusted dealers and traders to find out which models of classic cars for sale they have available. Also
make sure that they have full title to the car you are buying. The last thing you want is to make a private
deal without being assured that they are entitled to sell the car.
The Top Classics
There is something that should encourage you – with the current economic situation, a lot more classic cars are
on the market. You might already know this but classics are not inexpensive. Often the current price exceeds the
original sticker price. Project cars are the exception. These are classics that have become distressed and are
missing parts. These can be acquired for very prices but the cost of restoration can be very high.
Here is a rundown of some of the most popular classics:
* 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Special Roadster
* 1948 Tucker
* 1953 Aston Martin DB2
* 1955 Ford Thunderbird
* 1959 Chevrolet Corvette
* 1962 Maserati 3500
* 1957 BMW 507 Series
* 1964 Porsche 911
* 1966 Mercedes Benz SL 230
* Chevrolet Corvettes, 1966 to 1982 - The “poor man's supercar”
* Chevrolet Impala, 1958 to 1967 – Think tail fins
* 1967 Ford GT40
* 1967 Volkswagen Beetle
* Chevrolet Camaro, 1968 to 1969 – especially the 1969 Camaro SS.
* Chevrolet Nova, 1963 to 1972
* Chevrolet Chevelle, 1966 to 1973
* 1969 Corvette Sting Ray
* Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 1970 to 1978

Your choice of used classic cars might be a specific type such as a saloon car for sale or a rare model such as
the Bentley 4 1/2 litre open tourer by Vanden Plas. One of the darlings on the British classic car scene, there
were only 667 Vanden Plas tourer chassis built between 1927 and 1931. Customized bodies were added and in some
examples such as the 4-door Vanden Plas Dual Cowl Open Tourer the rarity factor is high. Only two of this style
were ever built.
Another classic is the MGB roadster, a four-cylinder sports car first produced in May 1962. It continued in
variations until 1980. The original MGB had a monocoque structure that made it more durable as well as more
light-weight. It is a dream to handle. Rover turned out two thousand revival models in the nineties. This RV8
looked like the real thing but it was not actually very similar when you looked at the components. Know your MGBs
before you commit to one.
Another beloved traditional amongst classic car dealers is the Austin Ten which was the most popular of the
thirties’ Austins. A particular favourite was the 1936 Austin 7 Ruby Saloon. The 7 had been around longer than the
10 and carried the nickname of Baby Austin. A small efficient car, it supplanted all other small cars and some
cyclecars of the era. It was licensed to other manufacturers who came out with their own version of the car. The
first BMW model was the Dixi, a licensed Baby Austin.
Whether you pay dearly for a classic in excellent condition or rebuild one to its original specs as a labour of
love, there is one huge benefit to buying a classic and that is there is no depreciation factor and the
appreciation factor is very high.
