DUTCH SHOW’S TEMPT­ING BRIT DEALS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Out & About -

1957 Rolls-Royce Sil­ver Wraith €35,000 (£30,035)

This SWB James Young Wraith was pre­vi­ously owned by com­poser Van­ge­lis – hence the Blaupunkt stereo and Mo­torola graphic equaliser mounted in the rear. It’s a right-hand-drive UK mar­ket car too, so it’d be an easy one to repa­tri­ate. www.retrole­gends.nl

1963 Tri­umph TR4 €28,000 (£24,000)

There was plenty of ev­i­dence of deal­ers push­ing prices up be­yond what you’d ex­pect to pay in the UK, but this TR4 was good value. The body­work’s in very good con­di­tion, and with the ex­cep­tion of some slightly faded leather trim be­hind the seats, the cabin and dash­board ap­pear to have been well looked af­ter too. www.im­parts.nl

1984 Mini ‘Cooper’ homage €7500 (£6500)

This 1275cc model looks like it’s been well looked af­ter, and if the 32,481km on the clock is gen­uine, it’ll have years of clas­sic ad­ven­tures left in it. The 13in wheels won’t please the purists and there’s some tape cov­er­ing up a size­able rip on the driver’s seat, but it’s a sound car with none of the usual Mini rot spots. www.clas­sicmin­is­brun­ssum.nl

1991 Jaguar XJS €16,495 (£14,300)

The 211,191km – 131,000 miles – on this Jag’s clock didn’t count in its favour but it seems well priced for its con­di­tion. With the ex­cep­tion of a few stone chips on the bon­net, the paint­work’s in very good con­di­tion, there’s no sign of cor­ro­sion and the leather trim and wooden dash­board have both been well looked af­ter. www.im­parts.nl
