Top 10: Classic cars to buy for less than £1000 in 2021

For anyone tiring of all the talk of rising values of classic cars, and who might be worried that historics are out of reach, this top 10 should be a breath of fresh air. We've scanned the classified ads, and debated it in the HJC office, and come up with 10 classic cars that you can quite easily pick up for less than a grand. This makes a nice contrast to our recent list of future classics available for less than £1000.

Our selection might not be the last word in sexiness, but we can guarantee that if you buy any of the cars in our list, you'll definitely end up driving a talking point. The good news - also - is that you're not staring down the barrel of a rusting hulk of a project. Our minimum requirement is that the cars we've selected are available in presentable condition, running and with a valid MoT certificate. You might be surprised at just what good value classic cars are available for your very reasonable outlay.

Volvo 240 estate

The ultimate in rugged practicality and classless classic apeal, the Volvo 240 estate is one of those cars that's eased into the scene with very little difficulty. And rightly so, given the fact that this Swedish icon has effectively been around since the late 1960s - yet remained on the new car price lists until the early 1990s. You'll either love or hate the brick-like styling, and unless you're spectacularly gentle, live in the country, and make sure you buy the latest model, fuel consumption will be particularly brutal. But keep it clean, and you'll be welcomed at all the classic events with open arms - and then be ab;e to buy all the automobilia you can dream of.
