Ten years ago the price range from rough project cars to perfect examples was £500-3600, and five years ago that range had eased up to just £700-£4750. The latest move brings project cars iup to £1.25, with tidy, usable examples at £2.75k and faultless cars typically £5.75-8k.
These cars are riding the nostalgia wave enjoyed by plenty of other sub-£10k four-seaters ranging from Maestro Turbos up 6.7% to Wolseley 6/99s and 6/110s up a massive 22%. If you’re feeling the urge to relive your family-car past, don’t wait for it to be picked up by the latest tidal surge.
