Whether it is the dramatic design, the luxurious interiors or their nostalgic quality, there is something about classic cars that makes them collector’s items that many people are willing to pay a small fortune for. When it comes to classic cars, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. However, here is a selection of classic cars that most people agree are simply stunning and are among the best machines that were ever made.
1966 Shelby 427 Cobra
The Shelby 427 Cobra boasts an impressive power-to-weight ratio that is sure to satisfy anyone who feels the need for speed. However, this vehicle isn’t just about the power as it also features a classic design that is very desirable and has put it right at the top of the Corolla catalogue for more than fifty years.
1958 Buick Limited Convertible
The 50s was a great decade for distinctive cars and despite the high level of competition the Buick Convertible managed to rise to the top. Naturally, one of the main elements that makes this model so desirable is the fact that it is a limited edition and it boasts more square centimetres of chrome than any other automobile that was manufactured in America during this era.
1964 Aston Martin DB5
The Aston Martin was made famous by the James Bond films of the 1960s and this car is unmistakably English. The shape of the automobile is instantly recognisable and this is the perfect car for men to drive when they want to relive their fantasies of being 007 on a mission to save the day and perhaps win the heart of a lovely lady along the way.
1969 Boss 429 Mustang
The Boss 429 features the largest engine of all the Mustang range and even after nearly forty years this model still delivers plenty of power and is just begging to be taken out on the open road. This is the perfect vehicle to take on a road trip when style is essential and the journey is just as important as the destination.
1963 Corvette Sting Ray
When the Sting Ray first rolled off the production line its sleek design literally stopped traffic. This was the starring model of the Corvette collection and remains one of the most desirable vehicles to date among classic car enthusiasts. In addition, the smooth handling and light weight of the Sting Ray makes it an absolute dream to drive and this model really set the tone for the next few generations of Corvettes.
1966 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350
This is perhaps one of the most overlooked muscle cars from the 1960s, although its exceptional handling and style makes it a real dream.
