TR6£32500
First seen 25/06/2018

TR6 for sale

The market is suffering at present from a glut of cars that are being overpriced and consequently sitting on the market for months and sometimes over a year. The market is stagnating in many cars mainly because asking prices are unrealistic. We see many instances at present of people placing their cars on the market at world record levels because a car has been sold at auction for the same price. There are usually unique reasons why the auction car has done well and the decision to price cars so highly on the retail market is resulting in them remaining unsold for prolonged periods of car. This is one such example which was first listed in April 2017 and is still on the market. Good cars priced realistically will sell, but anything else will sit on the market.

Latest auction surprises

Latest auction surprises for sale

We have two picks from the latest auctions run by Historics and Classic Car Auctions. The first is £42,560 paid for a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 2 which was part of a deceased estate. The narrative shows the mileage to be 24,623 which we are assuming was warranted and the car was a one owner from new. Once again this shows the kind of premium a low mileage and original car can command which must be a record for one of these. The other result at Classic Car Auctions was a huge £72050 paid for a 1991 Audi Quattro turbo 20 Valve manual which was again a low mileage example with just 32,233 miles which really shows that even in more difficult market conditions the right cars are still highly sought after. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

MG SA£15000
First seen 20/04/2017

MG SA for sale

This MG SA which is being sold for restoration from a deceased estate looks like good value at £15,000. With top examples now selling for in excess of £50,000 there is ample scope to spend money on the car and bring it up to roadworthy standard. See the original advert on carandclassic

MGBGT£18,975
First seen 21/03/2017

MGBGT for sale

What price a £47k restoration? That was the question potential buyers of an MGBGT at the Bonhams Goodwood Members meeting asked themselves. The car had been subjected to £47,000 worth of body restoration and the fitting of a reconditioned engine. We had an opportunity to view the car and it was by no means concours and the drivers door fit didn't look that flush. Nevertheless it was a nice looking car and someone decided to pay nearly £19,000 for the car which is quite likely a world record but in our view a little high despite the huge expenditure on the car. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

1984 Alfa Romeo Spider£12,000
First seen 28/12/2016

1984 Alfa Romeo Spider for sale

Low mileage and original cars continue to attract a premium and this Alfa Romeo seems to tick those boxes. The value also seems a little low and this car could be worth upwards of £15,000 if the car is in good order. See the original advert on carandclassic

Triumph GT6£10,500
First seen 11/11/2016

Triumph GT6 for sale

Fully rebuilt Triumph GT6s have been commanding some big premiums at auction in recent years and prices upwards of £17k have been possible. If this car is a full nut and bolt rebuild to a high standard the new owner might well be getting it a a very reasonable rate. See the original advert on carandclassic

BMW 3.0CSL£79,995
First seen 09/11/2016

BMW 3.0CSL for sale

Go back 12 months and the price of this car might look expensive, but in fact we believe it looks cheap. With only 500 right hand drive versions made, the scarcity factor has pushed good examples to over £100k as evidenced by the £102k paid for an example at the Bonhams Goodwood sale earlier this year. A restoration sold for over £60k at Bonhams Beaulieu sale which makes this car a potential bargain. See the original advert on carandclassic

Aston Martin DBS 6 Vantage£97,500
First seen 29/02/2016

Aston Martin DBS 6 Vantage for sale

This Aston Martin DBS 6 Vantage looks very cheap at £97,500. Given the rarity of Vantage spec cars and the fact that you can pay almost this amount for a normal DBS car we would not expect this example to remain on sale for very long. This car could conceivably be worth considerably more than the asking price. See the original advert on carandclassic

1987 Porsche 928S Auto£8,000
First seen 22/02/2016

1987 Porsche 928S Auto for sale

Eighties and nineties classics are really starting to gather some momentum now and for those seeking cars with the potential for capital appreciation the Porsche 924, 928 and 944 series cars still offer very good value. This 928 S might need some cosmetic attention according to the advert but if the mechanics check out it looks like a good buy at the asking price of £8000. See the original advert on carandclassic

1974 Triumph Dolomite Sprint£5,750
First seen 20/01/2016

1974 Triumph Dolomite Sprint for sale

Good examples of the Triumph Dolomite Sprint are hard to come by and top examples can fetch over £8,000. We were drawn to this particular as the condition appears to be superb whilst the price tag is very low. At £5,750 this car appears to be a bargain and you get 0-60 in just 9.1 seconds for your money! See the original advert on carandclassic

1951 Austin A90 Atlantic Saloon Coupe£6,950
First seen 06/01/2016

1951 Austin A90 Atlantic Saloon Coupe for sale

The Austin Atlantic is quite a rare car and even average examples can sell for around the £16k mark. This car is clearly in need of some recommissioning work but even so at the price of £6,950 it looks a bargain if the bodywork is sound and the interior is all there. See the original advert on carandclassic

1969 Volvo P1800S£23,000
First seen 04/01/2016

1969 Volvo P1800S for sale

The Volvo P1800 has been a popular classic in recent years and prices have reflected that. The P1800S is arguably the most desirable and the car on offer here has the later 2 litre engine. It is also a low mileage example with 42,000 miles on the clock. The price is about right at around £23,000, but we would not be surprised to see this example sell relatively quickly given its originality, low mileage and desirable spec. See the original advert on carandclassic

1975 Alfa Romeo Montreal£69,000
First seen 20/12/2015

1975 Alfa Romeo Montreal for sale

Today's car is chosen simply because of its rarity. During recent years we have seen many examples of where rare right hand drive variants of cars with relatively large production runs command a significant premium over their left hand driver counterparts. The Alfa Romeo Montreal is one such example where out of a production run of around 3,500 cars only 180 cars were made in right hand drive form. The prices of top left hand drive Montreal's have risen significantly in recent years, especially in the US. With such limited sales of right had drive cars due to their rarity, prices of these cars have been playing catchup to the left hand drive cars. On the continent we have seen good left hand drive cars being regularly advertised for around £70,000. The right hand drive car we are showing today is priced at £69,000 and this is only the second right hand drive car to come to market this year according to our records. The price seems quite fair given the rarity factor and this price does not seem to incorporate any right hand drive premium. See the original advert on carandclassic

1968 Triumph TR5£21,690
First seen 08/12/2015

1968 Triumph TR5 for sale

Today's classic car choice is a TR5 that requires restoration. Prices of TR5s this year have risen considerably and a fully restored example that is correct and has been done to a high standard can easily command in excess of £40,000. This car is priced around the £20,000 mark and we would expect it to be snapped up quickly given the potential to build value into the car. See the original advert on carandclassic

1949 Riley RMC Roadster£25,000 - £30,000
First seen 05/12/2015

1949 Riley RMC Roadster for sale

Today's car pick is one that is coming to a Bonhams auction which is being held on the 10th December at the RAF Museum in Hendon. The car in question is a Riley RMC Roadster which is one of just 100 right hand drive cars that were built. According to our records, the last example of one of these cars was sold in Belgium earlier this year. The listed price was over £40,000 which would make the estimate on this car of £25,000 to £30,000 look quite conservative. The car appears to be in superb condition and at the very least we would expect it to achieve something close towards the top end of its estimate and possibly more given the car's rarity. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

1966 Triumph Herald 1200 Convertible£3,450
First seen 03/12/2015

1966 Triumph Herald 1200 Convertible for sale

We could not help but notice this Triumph Herald 1200 which at least from the pictures appears to be in sound condition. A top example of a 1200 convertible can command as much as £8000 today which leaves plenty of room in the price of this car to improve it should work be required. See the original advert on carandclassic

1966 Triumph Spitfire Mk 2£6,750
First seen 08/11/2015

1966 Triumph Spitfire Mk 2 for sale

This Triumph Spitfire MK 2 looks very competitively priced at £6750. A good example can command £12,000 to £14,000 and if this car is clear of rot and is just in need of some mechanical work as suggested by the advert, there is plenty of room to invest in the car and build value into it. See the original advert on carandclassic

1962 Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 RHD£94,000
First seen 27/10/2015

1962 Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 RHD for sale

The UK market has suffered from a big influx of left hand drive cars especially among Jaguar E-Types chasing ever increasing values. Left hand drive asking prices have rightly or wrongly been very close to the much rarer right hand drive cars, but whether they have achieved these prices is another matter. An early series 1 E-Type that is correct and in right hand drive can easily command above the £100k level and we were therefore surprised to see this 1962 car in Germany which according to the advert is a matching numbers right hand drive car. The price tag of £94,000 looks good value in the current market for a right hand drive car, especially if there is room for negotiation. See the original advert on carandclassic

1979 Ford Capri 2.0S£4,500
First seen 07/09/2015

1979 Ford Capri 2.0S for sale

The prices of Ford Capri cars have been very strong over the last eighteen months or so but now and then a car will come to market that looks to have been undervalued by the vendor and this series 3 car looks to be a case in point. It appears to be in good order and with just 35,000 miles on the clock and having the 2.0 engine the price should be nearer to £8k in our view. We doubt it will be on the market for very long. See the original advert on carandclassic

1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mk1 BN7£22,500
First seen 02/08/2015

1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mk1 BN7 for sale

Austin Healey 3000s are achieving strong prices at the moment making this MK1 look very good value even if it does need some restoration work. A top example could easily command £60,000 at present leaving plenty of room to invest in the car. See the original advert on carandclassic

1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500£5,200
First seen 16/07/2015

1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500 for sale

In a market where most makes and models seem to be rising exponentially the Triumph Spitfire still offers good value and especially the later 1500 cars. This one looks very reasonable value at £5,200 especially when good low mileage examples can make the best part of £10,000. A car such as this should not lose any money if you look after it and it should offer some scope for capital appreciation in due course. See the original advert on carandclassic

1967 spitfire 4 mark 3£3,995
First seen 25/06/2015

1967 spitfire 4 mark 3 for sale

The price of early Spitfires has been rising significantly during the last two years or so and with good MK2s now comfortably above £10,000 the MK3 cars are playing catch up and a good one can easily command £8,000, making this example look very cheap in our view. See the original advert on carandclassic

1975 Factory MGB GT V8£12,750
First seen 15/06/2015

1975 Factory MGB GT  V8 for sale

The last few months has seen values of MGB GTs rise quite dramatically, with top examples now achieving in excess of £10,000. That makes the relatively rare MGB GT V8 look quite undervalued now and this example at just £12,750 with only 54,000 miles on the clock looks cheap especially given that dealers have been asking the best part of £20k for good examples. See the original advert on carandclassic

1968 MGC GT£12,500
First seen 19/05/2015

1968 MGC GT for sale

During the first months of this year we have seen a big jump in the value of big engined MGB GTs such as the V8 and MGC GT. This car at £12,500 looks good value if it is in good condition given that you can now pay upwards of £10k for a top condition MGB GT. See the original advert on carandclassic

1995 Honda NSX Type-R£95,000
First seen 19/05/2015

1995 Honda NSX Type-R for sale

Values of the Honda NSX are becoming increasingly strong, with low-mileage and rarer variant fetching a premium. This is perhaps the most sought after variant - the NSX Type-R. Believed to be 1 of only 2 Type-R cars in the UK, this is surely one for a collector/enthusiast. See the original advert on the dealer's website

1929 Bentley 4.5 litre Le Mans£545,000
First seen 17/05/2015

1929 Bentley 4.5 litre Le Mans for sale

It's hard to price the true WO Bentleys due to their rarity, but any Le Mans Bentley like this is going to be a good long term investment. See the original advert on the dealer's website

1985 Alfa Romeo Spider£7,250
First seen 07/05/2015

1985 Alfa Romeo Spider for sale

With the price of chrome bumper early Alfa Romeo spiders now exceeding £20k, the later rubber bumper cars are looking increasingly good value and this low mileage example at just £7,250 is likely to be snapped up very quickly. See the original advert on carandclassic

1962 MGA MK II Coupe£13,950
First seen 02/05/2015

1962 MGA MK II Coupe for sale

Whilst the paint on this MK II MGA Coupe is showing its age these are relatively rare cars and at £13950 there is scope to improve and possible even make a profit from this car in our view if the car is in good order. See the original advert on carandclassic

1955 Vauxhall Velox E Pickup£10,000
First seen 28/04/2015

1955 Vauxhall Velox E Pickup for sale

Unusual classics are finding a healthy market at the moment, especially vans and pick-ups such as this rather nice Vauxhall Velox E Series. The price does not look unreasonable at £10k and we would not be surprised to see the car find a buyer relatively quickly. See the original advert on carandclassic

1965 E-type Series 1 4.2 Coupe£49,995
First seen 22/04/2015

1965 E-type Series 1 4.2 Coupe for sale

Series 1 E-types are the one to go for, and with roadster prices generally well in excess of £100k the coupes must now feature on more collector's shopping lists. If this E-type is as nice in the flesh as it appears in the pictures, it could be a good buy. Opinion is split over whether 4.2 or 3.8 is the engine to have, however similar numbers of both were produced so it probably doesn't matter as an investment (unless of course it is a highly sought flat-floor). See the original advert on carandclassic

1948 Lea Francis 14hp Sport£18,000
First seen 18/04/2015

1948 Lea Francis 14hp Sport for sale

This is the second Lea Francis 14hp that we have seen during the last month or so. These cars are quite rare and the £18,000 price tag this car comes with looks very reasonable especially given that the last one sold was at a similar price and was a full restoration project. See the original advert on carandclassic

1981 Mini Clubman Estate£5,250

1981 Mini Clubman Estate for sale

With early Minis commanding ever higher prices it is inevitable that the later models will eventually follow suit and we are starting to see some movement in the Clubman series. This Clubman estate at £5,250 looks very good value to us with just 21,000 miles on the clock and if a lower price can be negotiated you may even make a small profit in due course. See the original advert on carandclassic

1978 Lotus Esprit S1£24,995
First seen 09/04/2015

1978 Lotus Esprit S1 for sale

The Lotus Esprit Series 1 is in our view a desperately undervalued car. These were made in hundreds only with a smaller number of right hand drive cars relatively to left hand drive spec cars. At £24,995 the price of this car is towards the top end of the range but we in a few years time these cars could easily be double this price. See the original advert on carandclassic

1973 Ford Capri L 1300 HC for sale

1977 Ford Escort MKII 1300 GL Auto for sale

With some of the more exotic early Ford cars such as the RS series and Lotus Twin Cam cars now fetching huge sums, attention is turning to some of the more basic models which often get overlooked. This MK2 Escort could easily be worth a good deal more than the estimate in the current market given its low mileage. We are now seeing low mileage MK 1 Escorts with a 1.1 litre engine pushing on for £10k now and the MK2 cars will almost certainly follow suit. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

1970 Triumph MK2 GT6 for sale

With the price of Pagoda cars now going stratospheric, attention is turning to the later SL series of cars and in particular low mileage cars which are now commanding a significant premium. This 280SL is not far off low mileage status at 69,000 miles and at £14,000 could well be good value if it is in top condition. See the original advert on carandclassic

1957 Porsche 356A RHD Coupe for sale

1980 Lotus Esprit S2 John Player Special for sale

Lotus Esprit's have been an overlooked classic sports car for a long time and they are certainly long overdue a re-appraisal given the meteoric rise in values seen in other parts of the market. This Series 2 car in JPS colours looks good value with 72,000 miles on the clock. The asking price of £12,800 is certainly not demanding especially when you consider that an Austin 7 can cost more in today's market. See the original advert on carandclassic

This Frogeye Sprite caught our eye today on EBay. It is a fully restored example with a few days left on its auction. Top examples can fetch £16k-£18k but this one is an ex USA car which has been converted and that will reduce the price a little, but that said even at £14k, if it is a perfect example, it represents good value in our view.

Even with a frothy classic car market at the moment there are times when cars do end up being advertised for a price considerably less than what the car is worth.

Restorations are always expensive but sometimes there is scope to build value into a car and even make a profit. This rare Bristol engined AC Aceca offers scope to build a car that could well yield a profit in due course. The finished article could easily exceed £100k in value.

1927 Morgan Aero for sale

Three wheeler pre war Morgans have been commanding prices comfortably over £30k for some time now which is why this advert caught our eye. If the car is original and carries its original engine, this Aero looks very good value at £22,750. See the original advert on carandclassic

1984 Fiat Bertone X/19£10,200
First seen 14/02/2015

1984 Fiat Bertone X/19 for sale

Low mileage and original cars are beginning to command quite a premium over restored cars and this Fiat X19 looks to fit the bill at just 19,600 miles. It is reflected in the price but as a long term investment the car should reward its owner if its current condition is preserved. See the original advert on carandclassic

1990 Aston Martin Lagonda - Series 4£130,000
First seen 13/02/2015

1990 Aston Martin Lagonda - Series 4 for sale

Perhaps the Lagonda is no longer the Aston that nobody wants? Famed for its quirkiness and worryingly complicated controls, this car has had few fans in the past. Maybe now things are changing. It's styling will never be to everyones tastes, but its hard to deny there is something quite appealing about its futuristic looks, which have improved with age. This car is described as being in superb condition, and certainly looks it from the pictures. See the original advert on the dealer's website

1961 Hillman Minx£5,500
First seen 12/02/2015

1961 Hillman Minx for sale

It's nice to see an honest and pretty looking car like this Hillman for sale at a sensible price. It has spent a large amount of its time in a museum and private collection and it sounds like the current owner has got the car back on the road with care after her time spent as a collectors item. We presume the car will have a low mileage, which would tally with the nice original looking interior. Hopefully this little Minx will find a new owner who will cherish it for years to come. See the original advert on carandclassic

1988 Ferrari F40£1.1m

1988 Ferrari F40 for sale

Several years ago we looked at the F40 as an undervalued car, given its heritage and legendary performance. It looks like this is finally no longer the case as we see examples like this for sale over the £1m mark. With just 2,000km on the clock this is certainly a desirable example. See the original advert on the dealer's website

1968 Morris Minor 1000 for sale

Auctioneer CW Harrison in Ossett, West Yorks is selling a Morris Minor today which is claimed to have just 190 miles of delivery mileage on the clock. The car comes with a not unexpected estimate of £7,000-£10,000 which it can be expected to easily achieve if indeed the mileage is correct. According to the auctioneer's website the car was last valued in 2000 and the valuation quoted just 190 miles from new and the car has sat in its current and only owner's garage ever since. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

1966 Triumph Mark II Spitfire for sale

Value in a restoration car? This Mk2 Spitfire that has come up for sale today could represent good value for someone willing to put some work into raising the condition of the car. A fully restored MK2 sold at auction recently for over £13k and if this car does not need any serious work it should be possible to build value into it and perhaps even a profit. See the original advert on carandclassic

1972 Jensen Healey MK1 for sale

Jensen Healeys have long been out of favour but as the more budget sports tourers have started to creep ahead these cars have been left behind. Equipped with a 1973cc lotus engine that powers the car to 60mph in 8.1 seconds, the Jensen Healey is quick and although the engineering and build quality was questionable at the time it is difficult to argue against these cars being good value in the current climate. See the original advert on carandclassic

1981 Wolfrace Sonic for sale

If you want to make sure your car is the only one of its kind in the car park, this is the car for you. It's the promotional car created at great expense for Wolfrace wheels in the 1970's. It apparently has a lot of history, including opening a grand prix at Brands Hatch and a feature in a 2 page spread in Playboy magazine. The car requires full restoration. Hard to put a value on a car like this, but let's just hope its next owner manages to restore it to its former glory and get it back on the road. See the original advert on ebay

Alfa Romeo 2500 6C Barchetta for sale

Specials such as this Alfa often divide opinion. Valuation really comes down to whether it matches someones personal tastes. This particular car caught our eye due to its very pretty lines. It's based on a Fiat 1100, having a 2500 6C Alfa Romeo engine installed. As such it has the potential to make a nice little sports car. The overall look of the car we like very much, perhaps being let down slightly by using sheet aluminium brightwork instead of chrome and the rather chunky looking tyres. See the original advert on the dealer's website

1976 Triumph StagAuction
First seen 08/02/2015

1976 Triumph Stag for sale

The prices of good Triumph Stags are now comfortably over the £10k mark with manuals generally commanding slightly more. This Stag appears to have had everything done to it removing any worries over the mechanics and body, potentially making it quite a good buy for someone. See the original advert on ebay

1980 Triumph TR8£16,500
First seen 07/02/2015

1980 Triumph TR8 for sale

Possibly not at the top of most peoples dream list, but its hard not to be tempted by a genuine low mileage RHD TR8. We suspect there are quite a few people who do in fact secretly fancy one. Could this be you? According to the advert only 35 such cars were originally made making it a very interesting proposition. Popularity in '80s cars is increasing, so if this car really is in great original condition then it could be a good car to cherish. See the original advert on ebay

1977 Mercedes 280 SLC£11,995

1977 Mercedes 280 SLC for sale

Values of the SL series of Mercedes have risen significantly over the last couple of years with the top 500SL cars now fetching upwards of £40k. The 280SL's also have a strong following now and the key is if the car is low mileage. This car has been imported from Cyprus, but if the quoted mileage of 16,000 miles is correct and the car is in good order the car is very good value for money at £11995 and it could easily be worth double this in our view. See the original advert on carandclassic

1989 Ferrari 328 GTS ABS£80,000

1989 Ferrari 328 GTS ABS for sale

The Ferrari 328 is becoming increasingly popular. This car stands out, looking fabulous in black instead of the usual red, and with a nice contrasting cream interior. One of only 300 RHD GTS ABS models and with only 37,000 miles on the clock it must be of interest to anyone looking for a Ferrari of this era. See the original advert on classiccarsforsale

1956 Jaguar Mk1 2.4£16,000

1956 Jaguar Mk1 2.4 for sale

With the price of Mk2 Jags steadily rising once again, the previously overlooked and relatively rare Mk1 is now starting to gain in popularity. This car does sport the smaller 2.4 litre power unit but at £16,000 it appears good value against its younger brother. See the original advert on carandclassic

1970 Triumph Vitesse MK2Auction

1970 Triumph Vitesse MK2 for sale

Having been the subject of a £10,000 rebuild this could well be good value depending upon the reserve that has been set. A nice Vitesse is very difficult to come by these days as they have generally been patched up, but as values continue to appreciate it is becoming increasingly worthwhile restoring these cars to a good standard. See the original advert on ebay

1952 Austin A40 sports for sale

These cars are quite a rarity these days and they generally go for what this dealer is asking. The A40 Sports is quite a pretty car and offers a fun form of classic motoring. The A40 Sports was actually built by Jensen and comes with a 1200cc engine with two carbs to give it a bit of extra power. See the original advert on carandclassic

1929 Triumph super seven sports for sale

We quite often see small pre-war specials, but this one caught our eye. What a pretty little car! It looks very well executed and restored by its current owner who would appear to have a good eye for detail. So often the rear of these specials are a let-down, but this one has a nice shape to it. The engine appears nicely detailed, the dashboard looks delightful and the hood is not just an after-thought, fitting the cars look superbly. If a fun little vintage sports car is your thing, then this surely fits the bill. See the original advert on ebay

1980 Ford Capri 3.0s for sale

With the increasing interest we are seeing Capris, this car looks very tempting. A similar one sold for over £20,000 at Anglia Car Auctions this weekend. This car has benefited from a full rebuild and some minor upgrades. Certainly sounds like its worth a look. See the original advert on ebay

1990 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet£12,500

1990 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet for sale

If you are looking for a Porsche on a sensible budget, then this may be of interest. It has low mileage at 51,500, and sounds like it has been very well looked after. Being an s2 it's also the best of the non-turbo cars. The colour and interior look spot on too. If you would like a 944 Cabriolet then this could be the car for you.
