Best Classic Cars of All Time

24 Oct 2019 Vintage Cars

Every person is going to have a different opinion on what the best classic cars of all time are and different criteria to qualify their decisions. At Vintage Rod Shop, we realize that it is difficult to assemble a definitive list of the best classic cars of all time; however, by considering a couple of different criteria and knowing the most desirable classic cars that you can find, we have come up with a list of some of our top classic car recommendations.

What to Consider when Deciding on the Best Classic Car

When assembling your list of the best classic cars and deciding which ones you want in your garage, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Some questions to ask yourself include:

  • Do I like the way the car looks?
  • Is it fun to drive?
  • Is it a pleasure to work on?
  • Does it suit my personality?
  • Is it an extremely common car?

The Top Classic Cars of All Time

Based on some of the criteria listed above, the list of the best classic cars of all time can get pretty long and change for each person. Some of the cars that could be on this list and have universal appeal for most people include:

Jaguar E-Type

One of the most iconic British cars ever made is the Jaguar E-Type from the 1960s. While most older cars tend to provide difficulty and be less pleasurable to drive than new cars, the E-Type outperforms many vehicles with more modern features.

Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing

When it rolled out in 1954, the Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing was one of the fastest cars in production. This car was also one of the first sports cars to be produced, making it highly desirable, classically attractive, and incredibly fun to drive.

Aston Martin DB5

Made famous as the iconic James Bond car, the Aston Martin DB5 is arguably one of the most beautiful and reliable cars of all time. All of these factors have made it one of the most desirable cars for collectors and fanatics.

Shelby GT350

The Shelby GT350 is an iconic street racer from the 1960s and a mainstay of the American muscle car legendarium. Also known as the Cobra, this descendant of the Ford Mustang is known for its volume, power, and stunning design beauty.

Ford Model T

Despite the fact that most Model T’s top out at 27 mph, have a two-speed transmission, and require you to crank the engine to start it, they are still an absolute thrill to drive. The Ford Model T is one of the original automobiles and a major piece of Americana. This car is more of a collector’s piece than it is a practical vehicle, but its history makes it one of the most desirable classic cars of all time.
