If you enjoy the company of British sportscars yet remain tired of the forever-celebrated MGB, Triumph Spitfire and Austin-Healey, then the Sunbeam Alpine remains the classic collector car for you. Besides laying claim to being James Bond’s first on-screen vehicle, the humble Alpine provides alfresco motoring without the marque-tax asking price.
What we seem to have here is a mostly original example, with a 4-speed manual transmission and a white exterior over black interior. Not much else has been listed about GAA’s 1961 Sunbeam Alpine, but judging by the pictures the car appears to be in rude health.

It’s easy to suffocate in Mustang news. The classic automobile world seems to rotate around Ford’s Pony Car, meaning that only historically significant or famous examples receive attention. So, ignore all that, and admire this restored convertible with personalised touches.
Besides a healthy 4.7-liter 289 CID powerplant, the striking yellow paintwork (and matching floor mats – wait until you see them…) will certainly turn heads.

Do you hanker after disco music, flared trousers, and facial hair? You need this 1974 Chrysler New Yorker to complete the package. It’s large, it’s brash and it’s oh-so-retro.
Powered by a 440 CID V8 engine mated to an automatic transmission, the Sapporo White finish is described as ‘mostly original’ – but don’t let that put you off. There’s factory-installed air conditioning, power door locks, power windows and an AM/FM radio.

One of 1420 examples produced, this 1974 Oldsmobile Hurst Indy Pace Car W-25 speaks for itself. Standing on Firestone RWL tires and burbling with the clout of an L34 Rocket 350 engine, we aren’t going to insult you by listing reasons as to why you want it.

First-generation Corvettes dominate the market, so why not go for a true 1970s icon instead? Besides a more aggressive stance and extra grunt, you’ve got the benefit of staying ahead of the value curve.
This one is offered at no reserve and wears exclusive two-tone grey paintwork with contrasting emblems. To enthusiasts, this is the Silver Anniversary Edition – a specification certain to appreciate further in the future.

As far as value for money goes within the 4x4 world, few trucks offer the perks of a retro Ford Bronco. Boasting automatic transmission paired with a 351 CID 5.8-liter V8 engine and power brakes, little can stop a Regan-era Bronco off the beaten track.
This example is being sold today without reserve. It may appear shabby and well-used, but the patina effect is tone perfect for those who enjoy using modern classic – rather than proclaiming the SUV as a garage queen.

GMC’s Syclone pick-up truck harbours a dark secret. Not only can you cart around stuff in the back, but you can also breach the realms of sense with its unusually bonkers engine. Channelling 280bhp through a 4.3-litre V6, you can easily outrun most contemporary rivals without breaking a sweat.
Just shy of 3000 examples were made, and as this one has barely covered 10,000km, expect the final hammer price to be somewhat high…

Be still our beating heart. While the Jaguar XKE remains culture’s poster child and hogs the spotlight, it’s the XJS that snatches our attention. Housing a 5.3-liter V12 engine oozing sophisticated aggression mated to drop-dead looks that define automotive beauty, the XJS has been criminally underrated for decades.
Now that the design is coming of age with collectors, solid examples command hefty premiums. Now is the right time to buy, so this healthy 1991 V12 with all the factory toys would make for a sensible investment.

It’s unmodified. It’s untouched. It comes with an original bill of sale and all the mod-cons. Having covered only 833 miles (1400km), if you squirrel this Camaro away for the next decade, you could make yourself a tidy profit…

Weighing less than most buffet lunches, the Ariel Nomad can crack 60mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds. Or about as long as it takes you to read this sentence.
It may look like a Meccano kit on steroids, but unlike so many other aesthetically mad machines, this one goes like it looks. Get a closer look at the bonkers specifications here.
