British Cars

Index of post-war British collectible cars

Hagerty’s British Car Index reached an all-time high following a 1 percent increase. Historically, British cars have been a mostly inactive part of the market. Following the recent surge in other collector car prices, however, they have come alive again. Granted, 1 percent is not much of an increase, but for anyone following British cars, the continued movement is noteworthy.

The main driver for this increase is light activity amongst component cars rather than any one major mover. Following a 15 percent increase for the previous publication, Triumph TR6s remained unchanged, however previously quiet cars like Big Healeys and 100Ms rose by 2 and 3 percent, respectively. British cars may not be setting the collector market on fire, but there has to be some consistency somewhere amongst all the craziness.
