Top 10

Car & Classic: the best-selling cars of Q2 2021

Forget window shopping, these were the top 10 classic cars marked as sold on the Car & Classic website in April, May and June 2021.
MG B RoadsterMG B Roadster

MGB Roadster

Should we be surprised that the MGB Roadster was the best-selling car on the Car & Classic website in the last quarter? Probably not, because the timing couldn't be better for this evergreen classic. The sun's out, the B's out.
Porsche 911 Carrera 32Porsche 911 Carrera 32

Porsche 911

Here's an interesting fact: the Porsche 911 was the most searched for car on the Car & Classic website in April, May and June 2021. It was followed by the Ford Escort (Mk1 and Mk2).
Land Rover Defender 90Land Rover Defender 90

Land Rover Defender

There might be a new Land Rover Defender on the block, but with prices starting from £44,000, the original (and best?) version remains in high demand. Not that you'll save a lot of cash – Defender prices remain high.
Mini CooperMini Cooper

Mini Cooper

If this list proves anything, it's that classic car owners are a predictable bunch. MG, Triumph and the original Mini remain in high demand, with sales fuelled by nostalgia and the need to escape from PCP tedium.
MG B GTMG B GT

MGB GT

Car & Classic told Classic.Retro.Modern. magazine that more people searched for an MGB GT than an MGB Roadster, yet more people bought the latter. It's the lure of a drop-top, isn't it?
Triumph TR6Triumph TR6

Triumph TR6

A year ago this month, a 1972 Triumph TR6 sold for a record £57,732 against an estimate of £25,000 to £35,000. The writing was on the wall that it was to be a strong 12 months for the British classic.
Jaguar E-Type S1 roadsterJaguar E-Type S1 roadster

Jaguar E-type

It's the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar E-type, so it's no surprise to see it making the Car & Classic list. If nothing else, it proves that classic car fans have deep pockets.
Morris MinorMorris Minor

Morris Minor

The Morris Minor is ranked eighth on the list. As an aside, Car & Classic told us that there were more searches for the Vauxhall Nova than the Subaru Impreza. Maybe it's the attraction of the rear arches on the three-door Nova.
Ford Mustang Mk1Ford Mustang Mk1

Ford Mustang

While the popularity of the Ford Mustang isn't surprising, it's worth remembering that the all-American hero wasn't officially sold in the UK until the current generation model. It finishes ninth on the list.
Porsche Boxster 986Porsche Boxster 986

Porsche Boxster

The Boxster is the second Porsche and the final car on the Car & Classic list. Finishing just outside the top 10 are the MG Midget, Range Rover, Land Rover S3, Range Rover Sport and Volkswagen Golf. There's no place for the Renault Safrane.
