“Retro Classics, if you’re looking for 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!!”

“I purchased my ’67 Mustang from Retro Classic Car a couple of years ago now, and found the whole experience quite delightful. It was a pleasure to find a dealer like Adrian, who understood a customer’s concerns so well. Very patient, very helpful, I got the impression he wouldn’t have sold me the car if he thought I wouldn’t end up liking it”

I found the experience of buying from Retro Classic Car a pleasure and over the years Adrian and Sam are friends as well as fellow enthusiasts..”

“I would rate my experience of buying a classic car from retro cars as 1 of the easiest and enjoyable experiences. I could tell this was classic car enthusiasts, who love what they do and wanted to share that with other classic car lovers. Adrian of retro classics was very fair in the price he gave for my 67 Chevy Chevelle that we part exchanged. The 67 Chevy Camaro I bought gave me the biggest grin when I took it out for a spin. I will definitely be using retro cars and Adrian again in the future. Thank you so much”
