Are classic cars a good investment?

If you’ve got savings to invest, there’s always an element of risk involved when chasing the best returns – so is it worth putting your money into a classic car?

As with any type of investment, the returns you make on putting money into a vintage vehicle will fluctuate over time. But while share prices are at the mercy of the stock market, the cost of a classic can vary according to a milestone anniversary or even the latest celebrity trend, so it’s important to do plenty of research before you part with your hard-earned cash.

And once you’ve invested in a classic, it’s important to get it fully insured, remembering to take out specialist cover with an agreed valuation for the car. If you insure a classic on a standard policy, you could find you get back a lot less than the car’s actually worth if you ever have to make a claim.
