SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


The July to September 2023 issue of Retro Classics is now on sale at good newsagents nationwide, or direct from us by ordering online quickly and conveniently. Once again we’ve a diverse selection of feature cars in this edition, not least our cover car, a Mercedes C123 Coupe that’s not only gone through a full-on, bare-shell restoration at the hands of its enthusiastic owner, but also has had a four-litre quad-cam Lexus 1UZ-FE V8 grafted into the engine bay! Not a straightforward conversion, it required a steering rack conversion and some clever wiring, but the result is a very potent but still refined classic Merc that sounds amazing.

Further into the mag, we also feature a period-perfect rallying Hillman Imp that’s decades in the making, a just-restored Ford Sierra Sapphire Cosworth that’s probably the very best we’ve ever seen, a pair of very retro Vauxhall Chevettes from Northern Ireland and a Talbot Sunbeam Ti that has the most unique backstory we’ve ever heard! With a detailing guide to keep your pride and joy shining at the summer shows, a look back at the often-quirky car ads of decades past, and reports from Galway Ford Show, Craigantlet Hillclimb, Ballynahinch Classic Car Display, the MAAC All-American Car Show, London Classic Car Show, Wexford Spring Challenge, Limerick Cars at the Cathedral and the Causeway Coast Ford Fair at Portrush, there’s a whole lot packed between the covers of this issue of Retro Classics, so don’t miss out – get your copy at any good newsagent, order a digital edition or click here to order a copy online!
