1973 Commer Camper – Classified of the Week

The staycation is hot this year, thanks to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. Yeah, they might have opened up travel to some countries abroad, but really, do you want to risk it? Of course not, which is why staying on British soil is a good idea. After all, the UK is one of the […]

1936 Riley 15/6 Kestrel – Classified of the Week

Of all the now long passed names of the UK automotive landscape, there is one that still stirs the soul. A company known for flamboyant and exciting design, and a company that took luxury very seriously. We are of course talking about Riley. And while its bicycle-based beginnings might not be the most obvious link […]

1962 Ford Consul Custom – Classified of the Week

And now, in the words of Monty Python, for something completely different. Namely this weird, but ultimately wonderful 1962 Ford Consul Classic with a custom twist. Shy and retiring types need not read on – this is a car that will be on the receiving end of many a neck-stretching stare.  The Ford Consul Classic […]

1969 Alfa Romeo GT – Classified of the Week

There is something so wonderfully perverse about a racy, noisy, stripped out, stickered-up classic car. For the most part, classic cars are machines we associate with sunny summers and car shows. So to think of one competing, and competing hard, well, that’s something to stir the soul. And it’s something to celebrate, too. People think […]

1976 Mercedes-Benz 280SE – Classified of the Week

The ‘70s have a lot to answer for. Avocado bathroom suites. Flares. Prawns being served in wine glasses. Yes, there was a lot wrong with the ‘70s. But we can forgive its transgressions because in amongst all the horror, there were some brilliant things. Alien (yes, it was 1979, sorry), The Good Life and this, […]

1971 Triumph GT6 – Classified of the Week

The Triumph GT6 was a great car, but by the end of its life it simply couldn’t compete with the MGB, which was a shame, because as the MkIII GT6 here shows, it was a car that had evolved wonderfully. The MkIII was sleeker, it was more aerodynamic and as such, it was faster than […]

1964 Volvo PV 544 – Classified of the Week

Old Volvos don’t die, they just get tougher. We demonstrated this last year by driving a 1990 240GL to Sweden and back in the name of louvres. Nearly 3,000 miles covered, not a single beat missed. And then you have cars like this 1964 PV544, which isn’t used for going to classic car shows set […]

1989 Mercedes-Benz 230E – Classified of the Week

This week’s classified of choice comes to you from a place close to our hearts here at Car & Classic, because we also have a W124 230 of a similar vintage to the car featured here. Ours, a once decrepit, fit for the scrapper, £100 wreck has been brought back to life. We’re using it […]

1973 Austin Custom Van – Classified of the Week

For as long as we have had cars, we have felt the need to modify and customise them. And within that need, there are many different schools of thought. Some are still prevalent, like race or rally conversions. Today’s modified metal will also still favour more power and improvements to the handling. However, within the […]

1993 E34 BMW M5 – Classified of the Week

When it comes to performance saloons, there are few that do it better than BMW. And at the top of the pile from BMW’s offerings has to be the M5. It was introduced in 1984 as part of the E28 5 Series lineup. It was a bold, brash car built to get four people where […]
