Vintage vehicles to buy that don’t depreciate

1967 Ford Mustang

When you think of classic cars, you probably picture the ones from old black and white movies. But in reality, cars have been around since the late 1600’s when the first steam powered transport was presented to the Chinese Emperor. Though they were once a plaything of the rich and famous, just about anyone can afford a car these days.

Despite the fact that for most of us, cars have become a necessity of day-to-day life, there are some cars that are special. In fact, they can be an asset that increases in value, like property, fine art, or a rare wine. You can find vintage vehicles to buy that don’t depreciate in value.

Some can be worth millions, like the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta which sold for over $50 Million at auction in 2014. European cars such as the Aston Martin, Ferrari, and Lamborghini have their place in history as the classic collectibles, but with Australian car manufacturing set to end by 2017, the humble Fords and Holdens could be the collectibles of the future.

While you may not have millions to throw around on a car, you’d be surprised at the affordable vintage vehicles on Gumtree that are likely to appreciate in value over time. If you’re looking to pick one up as an investment, or you’re just a lover of old cars, be sure to look for one that is in good condition, has original parts, and a documented maintenance history. Here are some that are sure to catch your eye.
