Welcome to our 2015 UK Classic Car Price Guide where you’ll find accurate pricing for the most popular models from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s based ONLY on auction results. We think this approach makes our price guide unique in providing the true market value for all models listed within their respective condition categories.
Please note if a particular make or model is not listed in our Classic Car Price Guide we either consider it too specialist or haven’t yet seen one sold through auction in the UK.
In compiling this Classic Car Car Price Guide we have noticed the following trends:
Beware the Heritage body shell affect. From an ownership perspective they are clearly very reassuring but in terms of values they tend to introduce an artificial ceiling because instead of getting rarer, cars can simply be re-shelled instead. Case in point is the Chrome Bumper MGB which bar early 1960s examples have their prices now apparently fixed forever at no more than £10,000 for the very best examples.
On a positive front Jensen and Daimler are finally getting appreciated. Perhaps being brought along by a growing appreciation of the Aston Martin V8, Jensen’s Interceptor is climbing in value and perhaps from a similar MK2 Jaguar upturn in fortune, likewise the Daimler V8-250 Saloon. Meanwhile the SP250 ‘Dart’ is now knocking on the door of its nemesis the Austin Healey 3000, with the very best cars tipping £50,000.
Original Mini Coopers, early Ford RS Escorts and 3.0litre MK1 Capris continue to increase in value with £20,000 and even £30,000 achievable. Therefore for many of us it is perhaps time to predict what will follow next. Given a continued desire to own original competition inspired machinery then the Peugeot 205 GTI and Subaru Impreza should in theory begin that same journey. When of course we don’t know, so maybe buy one soon with a degree of care whilst prices are low and cars plentiful. Also definitely keep one eye open on all Capri’s because previously unloved MK2 car values are up, which must bode well for later MK3 cars, including the 1.6 and 2.0 Laser, 2.8i and 280 Brooklands not to mention Bodie and Doyle 3.0S which is already seeing prices climb.
Triumph sports cars seem to be doing very well at present, even with the option in some cases of heritage shells. Both the Spitfire and TR6 really stand out. The former now commanding higher prices than its sibling, the Stag. All while the TR6 seemingly follows in the footsteps of the best TRs before with £20,000 surely on the cards soon for well cared examples.
Look out also for sporting Vauxhall HS cars as they enter classic status and of course Alfa Romeo’s, particularly the smaller engined GT Junior models, with interest in the 1300 strongest. All original Mini’s are now appreciating, as is Issigonis other gem, the Morris Minor, particularly in Traveller form with £8,000 achievable. The same value interestingly for decent 1200cc VW Beetles, meaning both Germany’s and Britain’s peoples cars have ended up in a similar place some 60 or 70 years further on.
At the top end of the market Aston Martin DB5 and now DB6 cars have seemingly disappeared out of sight, especially in Volante form. All while only the earliest Series 1 E-Types remain anywhere near as strong following half centenary celebrations which have apparently left a mild hangover. Interestingly prices are also beginning to compress across all three series with fixed head coupes catching up with their roadster counterparts. Series 2 cars still look terrific value starting at under £20,000 for usable six cylinder Fixed Head Coupes (FHC).
On a more general level newer Jaguar and Aston Martin cars are always worth a closer look with the XJS now on a positive upturn, particularly in post 1988 V12 Convertible form, and the DB7 poised ready to follow suit. The XK8 is still a way off and so maybe leave that one for now until interest grows, which incidentally we’re certain it will. Also worth a look is BMW’s 635CSI, if you haven’t already, and the 840Ci, which is clearly undervalued at present.
