What they have to say:
Milton Keynes based ClassicMobilia have been operating since 2009 and offer a friendly, open-doors approach to buying a classic car. The showroom is open to browsers (by appointment) and the website has that same approachable feel to it.
They don’t want to just sell you a car, says owner Keith Riddington on his website, but to help you understand the reality of owning and driving a classic. They buy cars, sell cars, source them for customers, offer finance, preparation and warranties, and advise on protecting your investment.
When we looked there were 135 vehicles to choose from. There’s a good mix of newer and older classics along with some fun stuff like a classic Porsche tractor or a Mini Moke. You can sort by price, age or mileage, or by using the drop down menus to edit down to the make and model you’re looking for.
You initially get one picture and brief details including colour, fuel type, engine size and year of manufacture. Click on something you like the look of and you’re offered lots more pictures, an at-a-glance overview and a more detailed description of the car and its features. The features tab shows a repeat of what’s in the description overview.
You can call the showroom or send an email inquiry. There are also facilities to arrange for a finance quote or to dive straight in and book a test drive. There’s advice about car sourcing, transportation and importing plus a good blog section.
