p56 Porsche 924S
With 944 values soaring, the 924 has started to follow suit, with Carreras and Turbos already reaching heady prices. Be assured the ‘S’ will be next. This looks like the one to get, with low mileage and recent maintenance.
STANDARD VANGUARD BEETLEBACK PHASE 1A
1952, £3000, reconditioned carburettor, leopard skin seat covers, cd player, engine rebuilt reconditioned head, full rear spats, drives well, not concours but presentable and extremely rare 07919 397548, Portsmouth
p58 Standard Vanguard
All Vanguards drive like cars far younger than their years, but the bustle-back Phase 1 is perhaps the most charismatic looking of the bunch. Bar needing new seat covers (unless you like faux leopard), this looks a good example.
1988, 135,000 miles, £1250 ono, Volvo 740 2.3 auto saloon, 3 owners from new, drives very well, MoT, black leather seats, great starter classic, 07817 687983, Tring, Hertforshire.
p60 Volvo 740
We don’t need to tell you that this Volvo has got plenty of life let in it yet at 135k on the clock, making it a perfect classic saloon on a budget. It looks reasonably well-cared for, with few owners too, just check its got all the history with it.
