Would you or a close rel­a­tive be up for the chal­lenge of hav­ing a clas­sic car to use free of charge for a year? Through the Clas­sic Car Loan Project, which is now in its third year, you may be el­i­gi­ble to have a clas­sic car on loan for up to 12 months in 2019. To be el­i­gi­ble you would need to be ide­ally 25 years old or more with a full UK driv­ing li­cence, have a fa­cil­ity to se­curely garage the car and demon­strate a strong de­sire to be­come part of the clas­sic car scene.

Car’s on of­fer for the 2019 Clas­sic Car Loan Project now in­clude the fol­low­ing: 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton; 1934 Mor­gan Su­per Sports three-wheeler; 1934 Austin 7 saloon; 1936 Austin 7 Ruby saloon; 1950 Alvis TA14 saloon; 1951 Mor­gan Sports three-wheeler; 1956 Ford Anglia 100E; 1960 Vauxhall Vic­tor saloon; 1968 Mor­ris Mi­nor Trav­eller; 1983 Austin Mae­stro and a 1997 Volvo 740 Es­tate. Added to this list will be two spe­cially pur­chased for the scheme by the Pre-war Austin 7 Club and the Alvis Own­ers’ Club.

As the scheme’s man­ager Bob Wilkin­son ex­plained. “This in­no­va­tive project is well man­aged through­out with an agree­ment be­tween the car’s owner and bor­rower cov­er­ing care and main­te­nance dur­ing the loan pe­riod, with the all im­por­tant in­surance cov­ered by Peter James In­surance Com­pany. For some of the cars on of­fer, I would en­vis­age hav­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from those who may al­ready own a more mod­ern clas­sic and are look­ing to ex­pe­ri­ence an older car.”
