Contrary to popular belief, there are classic cars for every budget, in every era, from the Citroën 2CV to the Ford Mustang Coupé Cabriolet and the luxurious Jaguar MK8.
But before trawling through the classified ads, it is important to keep in mind that buying an old car and restoring it requires a larger overall budget than a car in perfect original condition.
The consumer market in magazines, newspapers and on the internet offers the largest choice of old vehicles.
But the best rub shoulders with the worst, so it is better to get advice from an expert eye.
Auctions also offer great opportunities, with often very low prices. But in any case, it is essential to know the rating of the car you are looking for.
In addition, these “ancestors” represent an excellent investment. Indeed, the prices of classic cars have risen by about 400% since the 2000s, far outstripping the rate of growth of works of art and vintage wines.
