What Was The Cost Of A Car The Year You Were Born

Okay, so your old enough to drive…or maybe some would argue too old to be behind a wheel in my case, but just how much did a car cost in the year you were born and just how much would that equate to today? These cars were all new between 1950 and 1999 and the figures are loosely based on the BOE inflation calculator as well as on actual current classic car values…some of these may surprise you more than a little…

1950: Ford Anglia



1950 price: £310. Equivalent Price today: £9,888

In 1948, some three years after the end of WW2. the Ford Anglia was the cheapest four-wheel car in Britain and in 1950, the Anglia would have cost just £310.
