OUR VER­DICT

Classic Sports Car - - Buyer’s Guide -

Prices are quite low for these at­trac­tive clas­sics, but it’s likely that their rar­ity will soon have an ef­fect on val­ues, mean­ing that now could be a good time to buy one of the Ar­row range. Buy­ers can choose from a wide se­lec­tion, from sim­ple, prac­ti­cal and durable to com­fort­able, lively and well-equipped: just don’t buy a rusty car, or one that’s been messed with, or an ex­am­ple whose trim parts are miss­ing or dam­aged. FOR

Good value, rea­son­ably eco­nom­i­cal, highly durable and pleas­ant to drive; an ap­peal­ing clas­sic op­tion

AGAINST

Base mod­els have a sim­ple charm but won’t suit all. Rust is pub­lic en­emy num­ber one and bodged cars are com­mon – as are those whose orig­i­nal specs have been lost in the mists of time
