1954, 40,000 miles, £4495 ono. Lovely condition, regular driver. Original sunvisor and chrome trims on headlights and wheels. Interior in top condition. 0118 9787982, Berkshire

This can’t help but catch your eye given the exceptionally low mileage. OK, it’s been barn-stored for close to two decades, but it sounds like the work has been done. Interesting.
1952, £3250, good condition used for film work; known to club as rally distance winner and commended. Owned since 2003; log of use, run well, patina on body needs sorting. 07747 106335, Sussex
A car that puts you in touch with TV’s superstars? What a chance to get yourself a backstage pass to Grantchester or some other period drama. And a lovely car too!
