Whether you’re a serious petrol-head, a general vintage collector or you simply know how to appreciate retro items, there’s something truly alluring about classic cars. From hefty Volkswagen Classics to zippy MGs, great classic cars have a huge fan base – and, when well-maintained, can sell at incredible prices.

Want to know more about classic cars and find out where to buy them? These are the websites that you simply can’t live without.

Classic car magazines online

Before the internet, classic car magazines were a big deal to collectors and were every popular. And while readership of these magazines is still high, they’re now reaching a much wider audience online. Classic Car Weekly, Britain’s best-selling classic car publication, is a great place to find or sell a classic car. There’s an extensive list of classifieds here, with clearly marked prices and sellers’ contact details. Values range widely too, so it’s a great resource for both established collectors and newcomers.

Classic and Sports Car Magazine‘s online home also lists a large number of cars for sale. This is a handy site that makes browsing easy. You can search for cars by brand or enter your exact specifications to find just what you need. However, they’ve also got a great collection of blogs and forums, as well as a comprehensive feed on the latest news from the world of classic automobiles.

Classic Cars Magazine is another great online publication, with classic cars for sale and competitions on their site. Features from the magazine aren’t available online but you can subscribe to the monthly print edition. If you’re an iPad user, you can also sign up to Classic Cars’ iPad version. Classic Cars has been around for over 40 years, so you can be sure that its long-standing expertise and fantastic reputation is worth the subscription price, even though you can see its classified ads online for free.

And if it’s the latest classic car news you’re after, try The Telegraph’s classic cars section, a sub-division of its Motoring section online. If a rare car is up for sale or a collection has sold at record value, you’ll find all the details here.

Even more places to buy classic cars online

For even more classic car classifieds, try the simply named website, Classiccars.co.uk. The For Sale section on this site is well-populated with images so you can see exactly what’s up for grabs, and the handy search tool lets you filter results by manufacturer, price, model, country and location. You can also find out more about classic car dealers and clubs in the UK, as well as comprehensive guides to classic car brands.

Interestingly eBay is a popular place to buy and sell classic cars too. Ebay is particularly useful if you’re looking for a classic car bargain, as online auctions can finish at attractive low prices. However, if you’re a seller hoping to get the best price for your classic car, it may be better to go for a professional auction instead.
