Are you ready to invest in a Classic Car?

Classic cars are an increasingly popular form of investment, with large increases in values at both the top and the bottom of the price spectrum. Whilst the rarest and finest examples have proven highly sought-after, with the world record price for a classic car being broken three times in the last three years and almost trebling in the process, 16 of the top 25 cars with the greatest value appreciation are priced at under $10,000.

According to a NADA guide price survey, classic cars valued over $125,000 rose in value by 47% over four years, cars between $75,000 and $100,000 rose by 45% and cars between $25,000 and $50,000 rose by 39%.

As of 2011, two investment funds have been set up specifically for people investing in classic cars. The Classic Car Fund has been floated on the German Stock Exchange and is targeting assets of 350 million over the next five years. Another, the IGA Automobile Fund, is targeting 150 million over seven years and is looking to acquire cars such as the Ferrari 250 GTO, the Aston Martin DB4 Zagato and the Shelby Daytona. This illustrates that classic cars are now considered as serious investments at a corporate level.

Restoring classic cars can also be a rewarding hobby, as it can increase the value of the investment. They can also be entered into car shows and vintage rallies, where prizes can increase the value even further. The demographics behind the market should ensure that an investment in classic cars will reap rewards in the mid to long term. There is also the added pleasure and enjoyment of owning a tangible asset that you can enjoy on a daily basis.

Keeping a classic car in perfect condition will require access to vintage parts that may not be available at your local shops. Online you can find parts at Parts Geek that might fit your late model classic car.
