“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!!”

Thanks all a very pleasurable experience and so glad my Cobra is an epic build and a total work of art”

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.’

Valeria Kling 

“Really pleased with the car and the service, very patient and knowledgeable, would highly recommend.”

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. They paid an excellent, no quibble price and paid instantly as promised. I couldn’t recommend them more highly in terms of courtesy and professionalism.”

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. They will give you a good deal for a part-exchange, and proactively assist your in choosing the right car for you. The best overall car buying experience I’ve ever had-they deserve all success. 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!”
