“Retro Classics, if you’re looking for something interesting mainly American cars these are the guys to contact, always have a very interesting portfolio of cool cars presented in amazing original condition, I bought a beautiful 1972 corvette stingray unseen as I live in Buckinghamshire and did not have time to travel up North, I spoke to Adrian in depth and my instinct was total trust in what he said his polite, factual enthusiasm made me feel happy to go ahead with the deal, sure enough a red 72 stingray was mine!!
Say no more!!”

Craig Reilly

“Retro Classic Car purchased my 1955 Ford Thunderbird out of my private collection. We discussed the car over the phone and email and I provided many detailed photographs, so that they could see exactly what it was before they travelled 200 miles south to view the car. We agreed a price. The guys came when they said they would, approved the car, paid the agreed price and I was paid the same day. Absolutely no messing – I could not have asked for more. It was a pleasure doing business with them and I am sure that we will do more deals in the future. Retro Classic Car are friendly, professional and genuine. They are also true enthusiasts of classic Detroit Iron!”

Answered all my questions, and Sam continues to answer all my questions, great after service and car is awesome as described. If your looking for a classic American car, no hidden issues, top quality and trusted then go with retro car classic.

The service I received from Adrian was exemplary, also very professional and knowledgeable, a true enthusiast! I was very tempted with some of the other beautifully prepared cars in the showroom and I am certain that I will be returning! Finally, having been a collector and enthusiast for a many years, honesty and integrity are the one thing I look for above anything else and I sensed that from the very first conversation with Adrian.’

Mark Horsley

“An absolute pleasure to deal with Retro Classics, Adrian and Sam are knowledgeable, professional and above all extremely personable and helpful.

Ben & Georgina 

“Having a lifelong love American muscle cars I drifted through endless private adverts and I kept comparing them to the cars on Retro Classic. After wasting a lot of time trying to find a car that was as good as the beauty I found on the website I decided to go and visit Sam at the showroom. What an experience it was, an amazing collection of iconic, pristine vehicles. Sam showed me around the vehicle and his passion for classic cars was evident. Then he did the most refreshing thing and just left me to look at the vehicle. This is how a man who knows he doesn’t have to exert an ounce of pressure as the vehicles sell themselves. The whole process from viewing, to paying, to delivery was a great experience. Thank you to Retro and keep up the great work! I will be back (Arnold Voice)”

Dave Hodgson 

“I would just like to say what a superb service Retro Classic Car provided from their first enquiry into buying my beautiful classic Mustang, right up until the moment they inspected and collected it.

John Headley 

“I recently purchased a 1965 Ford F100 from Retro Classic Car. The whole experience was brilliant with Sam and Adrian telling me everything I needed to know and more. There was definitely no “hard sell” and I am very happy with my purchase. I would highly recommend this company!

Bob Fawcett 

“If you’re in the market to buy or change your classic car, you must visit these guys at Retro Classic Car. Both Adrian and Sam are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and honest.

Thank you sincerely, guys! I’ll certainly be back…”

Paul Knight

“When I saw the car advertised on the Retros website I very quickly called Adrian to set up a visit. I think that when buying a car you need to make sure that its in a good condition…obviously but also that you are buying from a reliable place/individual. I met Adrian and Sam and immediately you know you are speaking with people passionate about what they do. Both of them took the time to talk me through the car but also an insights into the ownership of a classic car. Throughout the process they provided tons of very valuable advice and very quickly you know you are in good hands. Its been a pleasure and I am now the proud owner of my childhood dream car… Five stars from me!”

Julien Debeavais 

“Always brilliant service from Adrian and Sam at Retro Classic Car, its always a pleasure to do business with them, I have sold two cars with them and they are professional from start to finish, I couldn’t recommend this company enough, have a look round their showroom its fantastic, full of interesting vehicles and lots to talk about, everybody is made to feel very welcome and their knowledge and interest in cars is superb.”

Adam Bennett

“Recently brought a classic mustang from retro classics. Really impressed with the professionalism and honesty from Adrian. He was extremely helpful and efficient.

Would 100% recommend. Would give 6 stars if I could”

Daniel & Marie Nolan

“I don’t normally review things but I think for this company is truly justified. Adrian and Sam a father and son team which was really nice to see know their product inside out and are truly passionate about what they sell.

Sold the car quickly and with instant payment, post sale 5 * service, highly recommended!

Mark Brown

Chris Penson 

“I must say that we were most happy with both the service, as well as the Daimler 250 V8 itself, when we bought the car from Retro Classic Cars in December 2020, just before lockdown 3 was imposed on us all. They very kindly offered to store the car in their showroom before taking delivery. I can personally assure any future potential customers of Retro, that they are a genuinely pleasant, customer-focused business and we would gladly score them high marks on all aspects of our dealings with them.”

Ralph Magee

“Bought myself some new toys for my 60th. Chevy Camaro and Pontiac GTO. I only went along to buy 1 or the other, but just could not make my mind up. What a great Aladdin’s Cave this showroom is, set in a lovely Yorkshire village. Adrian and Sam (father and son), both so welcoming and offering sincere advice to an enthusiast who has zero knowledge (or interest) in horse power, torque or any other technical terms. I just love the look and the sound. Importance beyond that to me is reliability. I am already enjoying my new additions, I intend to drive them, they will not be museum pieces with me. Post sales, I have spoken with Adrian on several occasions for advice and I have to say the response is on the button and never seems too much trouble, especially as some of my questions must seem a bit ‘numpty’.”
Peter Hendrickson
“After buying cars for the past 35 years I have never had such a great experience with any garage, rang to make an appointment to view. I was told everything about the car before I arrived and on the day I viewed the car I was shown everything, then was left to check over the car and all the paperwork on my own which makes a refreshing change, was never any pushy sales. After buying the car I was invited to pop in for cuppa whenever I am passing which tells me how confident Sam is in the car I bought. I haven’t bought my car from a garage I’ve bought a car from car enthusiasts thanks again Sam & Adrian.”
Paul Stoddart 
“I collected a beautiful ‘69 Camaro on behalf of a client. These guys do exceptional work, all their cars are brilliantly prepped and the showroom is spacious and spotless. There’s a great selection of cars on display. A very professional company to deal with.”
Ollie Conroy 
“I had been looking for an American Classic car for a while. I came across Retro Classic Cars and was fortunate to find someone like Adrian and his son Sam. I have previously had Corvettes but a Mustang caught my eye. Through the process of purchasing this stunning Mach 1 Adrian was always willing to talk about its history and give advice on the phone or in person. I would not hesitate to use them again. Very professional. I will be back for my next Classic car. Thanks to you both.”
Kevin Fox 
“Sold my Roush Mustang to Retro classic cars would highly recommend them, both fair and honest and made selling my car very easy thanks guys”
Christopher Spencer 
“Sam is meticulous with the details of the vehicles he is selling and his passion for the cars and what he does shines through. Adrian and Sam are the perfect team to buy your next American classic from.”
Alan Keenan
“I have purchased 2 cars from Adrian and Sam over the last 4 years, on both occasions Adrian and Sam have been amazing to do business with, and always very knowledgeable and always able to obtain the best quality cars around. I would definitely use them in the future to purchase any further cars and would recommend them to anybody who wants a great car with great service. I had the pleasure of meeting them both recently and they are just as helpful in person. Highly recommend.”
Graham Sparks 
“What a terrific place, I was like a kid in a sweetshop. Adrian and Sam are very easy to work with and very helpful taking your through all the cars details, I would say one of the best places in the UK to buy a classic yank, I will be recommending them to a few of my musician friends who also own and run classic American motors”
Dave Burgess
“Great friendly service happily buy or sell to them again.”
Simon Feagan 
“Absolute pleasure to deal with. Great communication and proper old fashioned customer led service. Just purchased a beautiful 67 Mustang from these guys and cannot recommend them high enough.”

Martin Allen 
“Such beautiful cars and lovely owners. They made my son & I feel very welcome. We just wanted to look around the cars (son is a huge American car enthusiast) I didn’t think we’d get indoors but Adrian & Sam invited us inside to look round.. Very, very kind gentlemen! Thank you very much for making our visit.. a rare, wonderful business and owners”
Elizabeth Cullen 
“Great to deal with, good honest guys. Hope to do more business in the future.”
Chad Donner 
“Thanks to both Sam and Adrian – great cars and made the whole buying process really easy. As someone that does not know too much about cars, they were happy to spend time with me, taking me through all the details and ensuring the car was right for me. The car has been great and delivering exactly what they said it would. Really appreciate it and thoroughly recommend them.”
William Habberfield

I’ve been looking for another classic for a while now and all I can say is the cars that they sell are all exceptional. They are both incredibly friendly and welcoming when you go to visit them, and both have a real passion and knowledge for the cars they sell. I would definitely use them again in the future and would highly recommend Retro to anyone else thinking of buying a classic car through them, you certainly will not be disappointed.”
Mark Merrydew 
“Great to deal with and always a great selection of quality cars.”
Alan Stapleton
“Adrian dealt with my enquiry and was helpful from the outset, happy to answer any questions I had and not in the slightest pushy. On collection I was given as much time as I wanted to check over the car and was offered a test drive (for which the 150 mile drive home proved entirely suitable!) He kindly part-exchanged my car even though this was not his usual fare.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Retro, and am pleased I took what for me was a brave step into the world of LHD muscle cars; at 60 years of age I only wish I’d done it sooner. Only the absence of a bigger budget would prevent me from investing in one of the classic beauties they have on sale.”
Paul Tittle
“From the moment I first spoke to Adrian, to discuss selling my late father’s Mustang, he was a pleasure to deal with. It’s never an easy thing to sell a car that’s over 45 years old and entirely unique, and I had some bad experiences with people trying to take advantage of my situation, but Adrian was completely supportive, guided me through the options and stuck to every promise. He helped arrange transportation of the car, we came to a good deal that worked for both parties and payment was immediate. Very trustworthy, great to deal with and highly recommend these guys.”
Simon Spaull
“Great experience with Retro Classic Car, knowledgeable staff, a great place to buy American cars. Highly recommended.”
Ian Woodhouse 
We bought a Pontiac Firebird convertible from Adrian and Sam. The situation could not have been easier. Met them at their fantastic showroom. It is difficult, when you are in there, not to buy more than one car, they really do have some fantastic stock. We spent a very pleasant hour going over the car and came to a very fair deal. No pressure sales rule at Retro Classic. A couple of weeks later, Adrian and Sam, very kindly delivered the car to our house. I am sure we will buy more cars from them in the future, they are the easiest of all people to thoroughly recommend to other classic car buyers. All the best.
Howard & Jayne Whitham
“Adrian and Sam were a pleasure to deal with when we sold our classic Mustang to them. Very open and friendly and with huge knowledge of the classic market and overall ownership experience. They’ve got a great showroom in a beautiful village and I’d highly recommend visiting them whether buying a classic or selling your pride and joy. Thanks again”
Lee & Elizabeth Crosby
A fantastic team! Retro classics did every thing that was asked of them & even went beyond, by working on my Corvette C3 engine to make sure the car went out in perfect condition. I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Having been in business for many years it was an absolute pleasure to find such a firm to deal with. Five stars is not high enough!
David & Jan Gregory
“It was a pleasure to deal with Sam and his father Adrian and put together a deal on a late model Mustang , clearly gents from the outset and would have no hesitation in dealing or recommending them in the future .A great father and son team with a passion for the business they clearly love. All the best guys”

Brian Davison 

“I had a really positive experience with Retro Classic. As this was my first purchase of a car of this age I had a lot of questions and I thought the guys were both patient and informative and I never felt rushed or pressured at any time in the process. Both Adrian and Sam were a pleasure to deal with and I highly recommend organizing a visit to their showroom, it’s like an auto sweet shop.”

Gordon Affleck

“Quality cars. Extremely easy to do business with. Highly recommended”

Peter Wilcock

“It has been a pleasure dealing with Sam & Adrain at Retro Classic Car They we’re both extremely Professional, friendly and helpful.
Arrived when they said they would and kept us informed all the way through from start to finish to make the whole experience a pleasure.
If you’re looking to sell your car for a good valuation, l would definitely start here. Takes all the hassle of advertising your car elsewhere and getting lots of silly offers and emails asking you to swap with a bike, a boat or a watch, yes really a watch ! Overall, a fantastic professional and personal way of doing business. Very happy with the valuation and the funds were in our bank the day before collection! 5 Star operation all the way! I would definitely recommend their services to anyone without hesitation. Thank you very much, it was great doing business with you both.”

Paula Bellamy 

“Great Family run Business – Terrific attention to Detail and Super accurate Description – An absolute pleasure to deal with.”

Chris Simons

“I purchased a Camaro Z28 of these 2 guys (recently) from the first time I met Sam I found this engaging young man to be polite, professional, not at all pushy and very pleasant for us petrol fuel old guys to deal with. I have never seen cars prepared to such a high standard, 100% better paint finish etc than when some of their mustangs etc where new in the USA. One would have no hesitation in recommending a purchase from these 2 gentleman..”

Richard O’Brien

“I recently bought a 2020 Mustang from Retro Classic Car and I have to say it was a great buying experience from start to finish. Sam is a great guy, very professional and very personable, and he made the buying experience a real pleasure. Needless to say the car itself was also perfect, exactly as described and I got a great deal. If the missus will allow it, I’ll gladly be buying from them again in the future! Thanks Sam! You’re a star.”

Mark Clayden

“We brought a fantastic truck for my dad for his birthday. It is everything it is in the pictures and more, he loves everything about it . Sam and Adrian are very helpful and understanding. All the vehicles that we saw at retro classics were showroom cars and outstanding. We would definitely recommend it as the place to go and wouldn’t go anywhere else in future.”

Riley Cooper 

“What a fantastic business Retro Classic Car is. Adrian and Sam are the most honest, direct and interested motor traders I’ve encountered. Their passion for their product is palpable and their level of service is truly outstanding. They are clearly more interested in building a relationship than they are in making a ‘sale’! If anything, they undersold the condition of my hard sought ’71 Mustang Mach 1. I will definitely work with these gentleman again and look forward to a long relationship – now off to build a bigger garage!”
Justin Byrne

Found her at Retro classic car, what a fantastic experience meeting Sam and his dad they put my mind at ease when buying my car, very friendly and passionate about what they do, made my experience so much easier to decide to make my dream come true, totally recommend these guys and will definitely use them again and now I have my car I couldn’t be happier”
Gary Duffron 
“Would highly recommend Retro classics. We have recently bought a triumph stag from Adrian and Sam, had a great day out there, great to have a look around all the other cars they have in stock, thoroughly made us welcome. No sales pressure and looked after us, car is a belter. Has found a good home. We have called her Marj. Thank you Adrian and Sam”
Jason Smith 
“We recently sold our classic Mustang to Retro Classic Cars. They made the whole process so easy and hassle free from the first contact to collection. They are professional, knowledgeable and always helpful. They offer a fantastic service for either buying or selling your classic car and we would not hesitate to deal with them again in the future. Thanks so much to Adrian and Sam and also to Brian who collected our car, genuinely lovely people.”
Alyson & David Cutts
“Big thank you to Sam and Adrian, we brought this vehicle on trust and over the phone.
I had never seen the vehicle till it arrived after I had paid for it assuming it was all they promised, their assurances of the good quality of the vehicle was equal and even surpassed my expectation.
Good business makes for good friends. I think it’s a great asset of a service to offer the customer (if they are happy to cover the cost of delivery) that they can have the final choice to accept or refuse the vehicle upon viewing. I will definitely contact them again when considering my next vehicle 100% thank you”
Vern Montgomery 
“Recently met with Sam & Adrian to purchase my retro dream at there showroom, it was so refreshing to be able to look over one’s shoulder & remind myself of what customer service used to be like in the good old days! If your looking at one of there classics you can be assured these guys know what there doing & the there product / service/ presentation/ after sales is all 10/10 – highly recommended!”
Chris Murphy 
“Excellent communication and personal contact with both father and son Harper. Easy and seamless purchasing process, overall a very good experience.”
Urs Zorn 
“Excellent service from start to finish. I tried to sell my classic car on other platforms but had no luck, Retro Classics picked it up using a very professional guy to safely transport it to their showroom. Prepared it and advertised it on their forums and sold in a week. And the best part I didn’t have to take time off work to sit around all day waiting for potential buyers to turn up! Thank you to Adrian, Sam and Andy and everyone else involved in the whole process!”
Mark Rawlings 
“Thank you to Sam for the professional and excellent service. Highly recommend Retro Classic Car. Was a pleasure to deal with them.”
Steven & Cecellia 
“Fair dealers, willing to help and a cup of Yorkshire tea. What more could you want.”
Neil McKillup
“From start to finish it has been a pleasure dealing with Sam in selling him my classic mustang. Both parties were pleased with the price offered and it’s been a prompt and hassle free transaction. Also reassuring to know what was once a family pride and joy has gone to a business that is passionate about American classics and will undoubtedly find it a new owner that will love and cherish it as much as we have.”
James Murray 
“I recently sold my much loved Corvette to Sam & Adrian at Retro. What can I say, this company was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Refreshing to find a business who act with such honesty, professionalism, and so polite and attentive. It was an extremely easy process from start to finish with such clear correspondence, prompt payment and good intent. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Retro Classic Car to anyone looking to sell or hopefully buy a genuine high quality American muscle car or any car for that matter. I am confident when I am back in the market, they will be my first port of call!”
Martin Crayden 

“If you’re looking to get a classic car, I couldn’t recommend Sam or Adrian enough at Retro Classic Car. They were both so accommodating with any requests or issues I had. I unfortunately broke my ankle prior to purchase, they were kind enough to keep the car dry stored for me until I was able to drive again. I requested a headlight change and without hesitation they completed it for me. I also had issues around what date the car could be delivered etc and they were always happy to help, I never heard a “no we can’t do this” from either of them. It doesn’t just stop at buying the car either, being new to classic cars I feel assured knowing either Sam or Adrian are just an email away to assist me in any queries I have with the car. If in a few years time I come to change this car, I would definitely come back for a part exchange or even another purchase! Great family run business.”
Farid Farahmand
“What a pleasure it was to sell our cherished classic to Sam and the team. Their passion and enthusiasm for classic vehicles was clear from the start of the process. Communication was clear and effective throughout and we had some great banter along the way. I would highly trust and recommend Retro classic to anyone with a love of high quality vintage and classic vehicles.”
Richard Walker

“It was an absolute pleasure buying a car from Sam and Adrian! The quality of there cars is exactly what you would expect from a top classic car supplier….”
Dougie Feltham 
“Absolutely first class service from Sam and Adrian, and the start of a long relationship! Their knowledge is exceptional (I was a first time classic car buyer) and their attention to detail and service is amongst the best I’ve ever experienced in any field. If there is a car in Retro’s show room, I would know it’s of the highest quality possible, and the guys passion for their cars will do the rest. I would highly recommend.”
Arlo White 
“What a warm welcome from Adrian and Sam, we contacted them at short notice to request a visit to their showroom in Swainby. We had a quick response saying yes, on arrival we had a warm welcome and they were happy to answer all our questions and show us around the cars. First class customer service.”
Alan Mason 
“An unbelievable collection of Classic American and European, original and fully restored cars for sale in Swainby. Father and Son Team of Adrian and Sam have over 17 years of experience in the acquisition and sale of some of the best Classic Cars in the country. Make an appointment to view the collection and make a motoring Dream come true.”
Ian Coulson 
“What a fabulous experience it is to visit Retro Classic Cars. It is a little oasis of automotive pleasure. You’ll only find top notch machinery here, mainly American. Sam and Adrian welcome you like long-lost friends and insist you have a slurp of Yorkshire Tea. The cars are the jewels, presented like shining treasure. There’s no hard-sell here, just enthusiastic banter. We fell in love with an old Mustang and a deal was reached with no fuss. Fair is the word which springs to mind. I don’t think I have ever made such a hassle-free purchase. I think I’ll always be drawn back to this gem of a place for another American icon, some Yorkshire Tea and some friendly banter. Put simply, this is the place to visit if you want a special experience and a special car.”
Nick Cooper 
“Friendly, informative and approachable company. Their stock of restored classic cars is constantly changing and consistently impressive. Highly recommended!”
Paul Shrimpton 
“Despite not having the car I was after in stock at the time I was looking, Retro Classic Car were more than happy to provide me with advice on purchases I was considering elsewhere. I trust the advice of these guys as we have been in discussions for over a year now and the fact that they were more than happy to pick up the phone and run me through a private sale is testament to their character. I even offered to pay for their advice/services and they wouldn’t accept a penny. I know I will purchase from Retro in the future and thank you for helping me with my purchase.”
Rob Parker 
“I’ve recently bought a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette C3 Stingray 350 V8 L46 Manual from Retro Classic Car. This is my first experience of dealing with the father & Son (Adrian & Sam). Absolutely lovely people to deal with, nothing is too much trouble, they have lots of knowledge & extremely honest. I would highly recommend Retro Classic Car. The only place I would ever go to know.”
Simon Cope 
“Just waved my 1965 Mustang good bye on a low loader after twelve years of ownership. The sale to Retro Classic car went very smoothly, mostly because of my interaction with Adrian and Sam, especially when they visited to view the car. From my first phone call I was impressed by the friendliness and professional approach they showed during the whole process of the sale. I have no hesitation in recommending the company and judging by the other reviews I am not the only one.
Hope to pop in one day for a cup of tea. Regards another Adrian.”
Adrian Read 
“Dealt with Adrian for the purchase of a lovely Corvette C7, what an absolute Gent. Plus met Sam on the collection – equally as lovely. Great buying experience. Thanks guys!”

Stephen Graham 
“I purchased a ’64 Mustang Convertible from Adrian. After speaking with him at length, I felt confident to purchase the car sight unseen, and Adrian made sure to deliver what must surely be the finest example of its type in the UK, fully serviced and ready to go. Highly recommended seller, and I hope to be back for another car in the future.”
Robert Jordan 
“The most professional customer service you can imagine. Sam and Adrian’s knowledge in classic cars is very impressive and their showroom is full of restored and well maintained cars.”
