Craner Classics is a company born of a love of cars, vans, bikes and…well, anything that has an engine. Our founders have been in the automobile industry for well over 40 years, and with a combined experience of more than one hundred years, not many can match the expertise and knowledge we have to offer.

We are so proud of our motoring heritage that we decided to name the company after a famous corner at Castle Donington Racetrack, one of the oldest and most well-known circuits in the UK. Like our namesake, we too have stood the test of time.

As far as our personal corner of the motoring world goes, all our vehicles are serviced and valeted to a high standard, and are not only roadworthy but have been selected personally by our founders to ensure the highest quality secondhand cars you can find. Starting with the odd one or two cars here and there, we now offer everything from classics to modern classics to current production models. Cars, bikes, vans, and everything in between can be found here at Craner Classics.

We even offer a ‘seeker’ service (contact us for more info), so if you can’t find the car you’re looking for just let us know and we’ll make it our mission get you the vehicle you want.

We like to do things differently here at Craners, as we know and fully appreciate that not everyone can make it to us to collect their vehicle. Hence we offer a UK-wide delivery service. Choose the car you like, call us with any questions you may have, come and see us (if you’re local) or we’ll come to see you.

It’s the combination of the right cars and the right people that has helped Craner grow to the respectable and trusted dealership we are today. We wear our hearts on our sleeves and a smile on our faces, so you will always feel welcome and at ease when purchasing your classic car. Craner Classics is steeped in history and experience – we take great pleasure in sharing that with other classic car lovers, so don’t hesitate to get in touch!

See you soon.

British Motoring Tradition

Our business would never have been possible without the magnificent contribution made to motoring history by such companies as Morris, Riley and Austin and the geniuses who in the early part of the twentieth century invested their time, money and effort in making British carmaking what it was when many of our cars were produced.

The trusty A-series engine which features in many of BMCs cars or the revered 3500cc Rover engine which was Austin’s flagship engine throughout the 1970s and beyond have made it so much easier for us to restore and maintain our cars.

Many of the companies who help restore our cars to such a high standard have been able to specialise and excel thanks to many of the engines often being so similar, whether in Rileys, Morrises, and Austins, or in bigger powerhouses such as those found in Jaguars. And of course engines were a lot less complicated in those days although just as if not more reliable. Our customers often tell us how delighted their elderly mechanic was to discover he would get to service an engine he knew inside out all those years ago.
