1983 Rolls-Royce Camargue (£50,000-£60,000)

Designed by Paolo Martin at Pininfarina, the Camargue was the first post-war production Rolls Royce not to be designed in-house. With bodywork made in London by Rolls Royce’s coachbuilding division Mulliner Park Ward, the Camargue reached a production of 530 units over 11 model years. At launch, it was the most expensive production car in the world. It was powered by the same 6.75-litre V8 engine as the Silver Shadow, although the Camargue was slightly more powerful. This example also has the rare optional extra of full leather head-lining which cost as much as a new Mini back in 1975. The present owner had a new  air-con system installed, new carburettors, new alternator and had it re-sprayed in 2014.

I nearly bought one of these in the early 70's but it was about £1400, over a year's salary. I did buy a Hillman Avenger which was a complete load of rubbish. I had to have new cam followers at just over a year old. Rootes admitted that a batch of cam followers had not been nitrided but did not offer any financial assistance with new ones!
