Where to find Chevrolet classic cars in UK?

The Chevrolet Motor Company was formed in 1911 in Detroit, Michigan. Its founders were Louis Chevrolet and William C Durant, the former head of General Motors. This article will show where to find Chevrolet classic cars in UK.

Ads

The company had a double purpose. It wanted to compete with Henry Ford's company as well as make use of the talents of race car driver Louis Chevrolet. Popularity of the brand The result was an enduring brand that is still going strong. Classic Chevrolet cars are very much in demand, thanks to their retro look, which is characterised by curves and smooth lines. As might be expected, these cars are collected throughout the world, and even in England.
When in the market for Chevrolet classic cars in the UK, there is more than one place to look.
Advertisements in newspapers and publications
Publications, devoted to classic cars or even ads put in daily papers, are one source of classic Chevy cars. The publications devoted to older models of cars may offer the widest selection, but they may often have the higher prices as well. While the selection of old autos may be less in newspaper ads, the prices may be better.
Both methods have their pluses and minuses. It may be best to use a combination of both to track down that classic car. Ads may be found online as well.

Auctions

Another source of Chevrolet classics may be car auctions. There, you may find whole auctions devoted to older Chevrolet models or even portions of them.
Using catalogues
In any case, catalogues of the offerings are available, as well as the opportunity to see the first-hand vehicle. Even if you are not able to afford the classic Chevrolet at the prices offered, having the opportunity to touch, and perhaps, even sit inside the vehicle can make the experience worth-while.

Classic car shops

Chevrolet dealers You may find that there are Chevrolet dealers, who will offer a selection of classic Chevrolet models for sale. Depending on the dealer, the selection can be rather small, hit-or-miss, or extensive. This depends on the focus of the dealer. Test-driving the car The benefit of the dealership is that you may be given the opportunity to test-drive the vehicle before buying it. This can give you an idea of how the car may handle, and whether you wish to use the car as an every-day driver. Price of the car The only drawback to buying a classic Chevrolet at a dealership is that you may find yourself paying a premium price.
