The first six months of 2021 were quite unlike the first six months of 2020. Most would prefer to put behind them the difficulties faced last year, as the early signs of a global pandemic became apparent and disruption to normal life took hold. This year, there has been more to cheer about. Football gave the nation a welcome lift, if not the fairytale ending, lockdown restrictions are set to lift and events such as the Goodwood Festival of Speed and British Grand Prix have sped off the start line.

Judged on the results of sales, car enthusiasts and investors alike have put their foot down and given the classic car market an appreciable boost. Prices of MGBs, particularly the GT model are still rising, so get in there quickly as the’re still an good investment opportunity.

Due to the current climate I can take a 360 video of any car that we have in stock, which I can send to you via email, or message me via Whats-app on 07990 977197. I can arrange UK nationwide, or mainland European delivery at very competitive rates.

I hope you are keeping safe during this uncertain time.

Croydon Classics has been watching closely what the effects of COVID-19 is having on the Classic Car Market.

With most of the world in lockdown the classic car world has seen little slowdown, and we have seen a dramatic increase in our overall website users and leads sent from our online advertising. We are currently working with a number of flatforms to sell our stock during the current travel restrictions.

The collector car community is still very much focused on moving forward, with classic car enthusiasts looking for their next car. Classic car buyers are spending more time browsing the classifieds on our website and related links.

Please take the time to have a look at our website, and let me know if you would like any further details.

Conditions in the classic car market seem to have stabilised and although prices are still at an all-time high, sales are still good.

The overseas market is still at an optimum, and hundreds of our classics are still leaving the UK, which is atributing to such prices.

Summer appears to be here, time to enjoy!

 

The Euro has recently strengthened. Consequently, the export market to Europe has improved, along side the continued strength in the home market.

Following the Brexit result in June 2016, and subsequent weakening of sterling against the Euro, export conditions have improved.

The resultant effect is that there is an increased demand for British Classic Cars. Finding quality examples of MGs is becoming more difficult, and therefore prices are continuing to rise.

Prices are still rising – your money is safe!
