PRE­VI­OUS CHECKS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Un­like reg­u­lar sec­ond-hand ve­hi­cles, clas­sic cars have had sev­eral decades in which to be ex­posed to rou­tine wear, botched re­pairs, ac­ci­dent dam­age and even iden­tity theft. Most of to­day’s prized clas­sics were con­sid­ered in­ex­pen­sive ‘bangers’ by the mo­tor trade at some point in their his­to­ries, mean­ing that past re­pairs may have been per­formed on the cheap. There­fore, tak­ing your time, do­ing in-depth re­search and en­list­ing the help of like-minded en­thu­si­asts and clubs will re­duce the risk of post­pur­chase is­sues rais­ing their heads. Yet, even if you fol­low all buy­ing guides to the let­ter, be aware that things can still go wrong.
