Hot Rods &
Customs For Sale

This is where members of the Vintage Hot Rod Association can advertise their VHRA eligible cars for sale. To advertise a car, you’ll need to email us photographs, a full description, price and your contact details, all of which will be included in the advert. Ads must include a price, so no “offers” or “POA” please. Cars do not need to be complete, but they do need to be together enough to show that they meet the rules for joining the club.

 

There’s no fee for this service and your ad will run for two months, but please remember to let us know if the car is sold ahead of that. This service is only available to VHRA members that are private sellers, not those in the motor trade.

If you're in the market to buy, then please direct your queries to the contact details in the adverts, not to the VHRA.
