Antique cars are not regularly driven on roads due to their delicate age. However, some collectors also enjoy driving these cars occasionally. Some of the really old, famous, and restored cars are still sold today by the experts of antique cars. Their prices are derived on the basis of some specific factors.
Antique cars belong to the pre-world war one era. These are basically the cars that were first commercially produced and sold to the common public. The brass cars were manufactured for development and experimentation, instead of sales. Some of them were sold, but to a select few for very high costs.
The antique car era started just before world war one, when car developers started the production of automobiles with the help of crude auto parts and very basic manufacturing tools. The biggest development that occurred in this era was that of development and implementation of the assembly line.
The assembly line was developed by Ransom E. Olds and was implemented by Henry Ford. One of the biggest advantages of these types of assembly lines was that the cars became cheaper and efficient, and many people could afford them. These cars are today known as antique cars.
The values are derived on the basis of the following factors.
- Age of the car
- Material and parts used during restoration
- Make of the car
- Antique car insurance
- Whether the car be driven for a long time or not
Most of the time, such cars are sold in big auto auctions after it is examined by experts. Many companies themselves restore such cars which are often found in auto shows and exhibitions. According to many enthusiasts, the real value of antique cars cannot be derived, as these cars are priceless.
