‘We source, restore and sell fine Legendary cars which are eager to share their story’
Over the last 35 years Ivo Cappon, the founder of Cars By Cappon, has had a true passion for all kinds of motorised vehicles. Especially British cars, and their heritage, powered his imagination and fuelled his ambition. Ivo started his business with one of Britain’s most iconic legends, "The Mini Cooper". This first project taught him about the trade. Knowledge that he has further developed ever since.
The market for Classic Cars has developed significantly in the past 35 years. We were very fortunate to be able to collect a huge archive and database over these years. Our great advantage is that we have experienced all sides of the market. We use this experience to find the best solution for you, our customer. Our customers come from all over the world and we are proud to reckon many great collectors amongst our clients.
We assist newcomers with the right choice for a car. As well as people who have been in the market for a long time, by sourcing the missing car for their collection.
The Classic Car market is unique. Not only has it been a wise investment to buy a classic car in the last few decades, but owning, rallying and racing one has become quite fashionable. Some people might be tempted to get into the market for these reasons alone. However, we think there are many more reasons for buying a classic car. By buying a classic car we have the chance to obtain a part of history, and preserving it for generations to come. The opportunity to drive or race a car in which people like Stirling Moss, Juan-Manuel Fangio, John Surtees and many others have written history, is beyond all description. Allowing us to own and experience a car like this is one of the many reasons for our passion.
