1981 DeLorean DMC-12

DMC 12 front

Why We Like It

The owner says it has no flux capacitor, but this DeLorean doesn't need one - it will take you right back to the past like it's 1981. It's covered just 3231 miles from new, has its original radio, jack, tools and even (perhaps unwisely, given their age) wears its original tyres. If you want a near factory-fresh DeLorean, this must be close to as good as it gets.

1985 Aston Martin Lagonda

AML fr 3 4

Why We Like It

The razor-edged Bill Towns-designed 1970s Lagonda saloon looks unexpectedly acceptable these days, and with the price of most Astons beyond the financial orbit of most of us, these less expensive beasts are looking more appealing.

Why We Like It

It looks as sharp as the suit of the man Ford's advertising agency imagined driving it back in 1971 - a man of action, with sideburns. This car's apparently exceptional condition, its rarity and claimed 34,000 miles explain the price, as do rocketing Capri values.

1973 Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Series 2 swb automatic

jaguar xj6 series 2 154074018 1

Why We Like It

The first three Series of XJ Jaguars, which ran from 1968 to 1992, still look undervalued given what handsome, standard-setting cars they were. This XJ is quite pricey, but it appears to be in exceptional condition, has had low ownership and covered few miles. Probably worth a look if you want what could be an investment-grade example.

Leyland Princess 2200 HLS

Why We Like It

If you want a wedge-shaped slice of 1970s nostalgia, a Princess is hard to beat. This one appears to be in exceptional condition, and how many others can there be with this mileage and originality?
