Classic cars have a huge fan base in the UK as they offer an alternative to the common modern-day motors that populate our roads, and for many they hold a prestigious and nostalgic value.
When it comes to purchasing a classic car, many believe that it will be out of their price range. However, owning a vintage motor doesn’t have to break the bank.
Classic cars are worth a second look, especially if you keep your annual mileage low.
They can also make a great investment with values of some cars appreciating over time, depending on the condition and functions of the car.
And surprisingly, owning a classic model can save you money on your insurance. For more info check Footman James Classic Car Insurance. They specialise in classic car insurance and vintage car insurance.
Why not spice up your motoring life with something inexpensive and fun?
I picked out a few cars for under £1,000* that you might not have considered, to give you an idea of what you can get for your money.
It’s usually not too difficult to find these cars either, so a bit of searching should soon turn up a few good examples for sale near you.
As with all used purchases, do remember to get a car history check. It might just save you from an unpleasant surprise later down the line.
