A brief history of Austin cars

Many classic cars not only retain their value but increase in worth as they get older. Classic cars have seen a remarkable increase in value during recent years: the most valuable being cars produced in the 1950s and 1960s. If you are considering investing in something that will hold (or increase) its value, you could do a lot worse than purchasing a classic car from the eras mentioned above.

When deciding which type of classic car is the best to invest in, it is worth considering the most popular ones on the market today. We also stock a range of vans and trucks that are in excellent condition. For example if you are operating a man and van business in England or Wales and are in need of an affordable and reliable second-hand vehicle, get in touch to find out more!

E-type Jaguars

The e-type Jaguar has won many awards for its outstanding beauty. As a result, their price has increased exponentially in recent years: in 2011 the cost of an e-type was around £30,000 - £40,000. A nice little investment, if you get the opportunity.

 

Bentley S-2

The Bentley S2 was produced between 1959 and 1962 and featured a Rolls Royce engine. Its fame catapulted when Sir Elton John owned an S2, although he auctioned his model off in 2001. In 2014, its median value had risen to around £70,000.

 

Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII Phase II Convertible

A stylish two-seater convertible, the Austin Healey 3000 has the Austin quality ‘stamp’ upon its name. Comparing the price in 2011 (around £22,000) with 2016 (around £50,000) shows just how much profit there is to be made if you buy these delightful cars at the right time!

Aston-Martin DB5 Sport Saloon

Not only does this car have a stylish name but its appearance attracted the directors of James Bond –now that’s a ringing endorsement! Rising in value from £140,000 in 2011 to £320,000 in 2016, the DB5 is likely to remain highly valued do to its association with the film industry.

Our Specialization

During a recession, there are very few products that increase in value. This is true for the majority of many cars that are bought and sold in today’s marketplace. By contrast, many classic cars not only retain their value but increase in worth, as they get older.
