A jump of 22% puts them not only in the top ten Price Guide Movers On The Up in our latest issue, it pushes them into the top three. While needs-everything project cars will cost less than £2000 to buy, the restoration work needed will make the £14k you’d need for a concours car seem cheap. Between the extremes you’re looking at £4k for something usable and £9.25k for a faultless example.
It’s scarcity overlaid with nostalgia and family-friendly usability that’s driving prices across this category of classic – another Farina-styled sibling, the Rolls-Royce-powered Vanden Plas 4-Litre R has also shifted up by 15% to give a £1.8k to £15k price spread, and we’re expecting stablemates Austin Westminster and Vanden Plas Princess to follow in their wake.
Price Guide Movers is part of 16 pages of buying tips and advice, including Quentin Willson’s Hot Tips, Ads on Test and the Buying Guide in thelatest issue of Classic Cars.
