DO NOT BUY A CLAS­SIC UN­TIL YOU READ THIS!

T he Austin-Healey 3000, Jaguar XJ- S and R129-gen­er­a­tion Mercedes-Benz SL are among the cars most likely to land savvy clas­sic buy­ers prof­its over the next 12 months, clas­sic ex­perts have told CCW.

Nick Whale, man­ag­ing direc­tor of Clas­sic Car Auc­tions, says that while he reck­ons that per­for­mance Fords like rear-drive Es­corts will con­tinue their cur­rent up­ward tra­jec­tory, there are plenty of cur­rently un­der­rated Bri­tish clas­sics that are find­ing favour. Cars from the 1990s, in­clud­ing the Volk­swa­gen Cor­rado, are show­ing some of the strong­est price rises.

He says: ‘De­spite the gen­eral feel­ing of un­cer­tainty trig­gered by the whole is­sue of Brexit, the gen­eral out­look for the clas­sic car mar­ket re­mains pos­i­tive on the whole.’
