KGF Classic Cars
When was KGF started?
KGF Classic Cars was set up in late 2012. After a successful career spanning two decades selling and managing premium vehicles for dealerships in London and Cambridgeshire, I decided to follow my heart and set up my own business, sourcing original, modern classic cars and sharing them with like-minded enthusiasts. I’ve never looked back.
How did 2016 work out?
2016 was another record year for KGF – we’ve grown year-on-year, thanks to careful investment in the right vehicles.
How has this year been so far?
We’ve already had a positive start to 2017. A new senior member of staff with aftersales experience has joined the team, allowing us to further raise quality control in the preparation of classic cars.
What period of cars do you cover?
All the vehicles we offer are personally checked, meticulously inspected and driven to ensure that they meet our high standards – and they are becoming very hard to find. The cars are eventually selected with the ultimate aim of providing the new owner with the best possible experience of that model, whatever it may be. We have sold everything from a 1972 Motobecane Mobylette AV50 to a 2010 Volkswagen T5 Camper! We specialise in modern classics from the 1970s, ‘80s, 90s and even 2000s.
Which cars are proving popular, and which do you think might be falling out of favour?
Modern classics that are original, unmolested and have low mileage are always popular. Fords are always crowd-pleasers but luxury brands such as Porsche have panache!
‘Fords are always crowd-pleasers’
How informed do you think potential buyers are?
They’re very clued-up, and they’ve done their homework on the internet, whether it’s about the specific provenance of that car, or that model in general. We’re here to help, and we like to be clear about the condition of the cars we sell. We’ll put up to 100 photographs of a car on our website, along with a video.
Are most of your sales to UK buyers?
Yes, although we have a steady stream of export demand, to which we are happy to respond. This passion for classic cars has no borders!
