There are no doubt a lot of people who think that you need to be very wealthy to own a classic car but this is not the case. This is apparent following the recent auction of some classic cars here in the UK.
Brightwells Affordable Classics Car Auction took place on the 21st March 2018 and there were a number of classic vehicles that were sold for prices that many people could potentially afford without having to consider selling the family home to raise the cash.
Obviously, you get what you pay for so one would not expect to go along to such an auction and expect to pick up an immaculate 1960s Ferrari 250 GTO for a five figure sum.
You can see a full list of the classic cars sold at the above auction on the brighwells.com website but below we highlight just a few of the vehicles that were sold.
For instance, a 1952 Austin A40 Sports was sold for £14,000. It has a 1,200cc engine and its bodywork is in a blue-grey colour with a grey leather interior with red piping. It has been subject to restoration work in the past and has a number of receipts as well as a handbook and log book.
A 1961 Morris Minor Million achieved a sale price of £7,200. It is in need of being fully renovated but will no doubt present a wonderful project for someone who loves this make and model of classic car. Its bodywork was painted in lilac and it has white leather seats. Only 350 of these vehicles were built.
How about a 1972 Fiat 500L with white bodywork and a 499cc air-cooled engine that was sold for £5,200. This classic car is in need of a little restoration work and even comes with its original invoice. According to the mileometer, it has travelled a mere 21,257 miles over the years.
There were many other interesting classic cars sold at the auction so why not take a look on their website for more information.
