Welcome to AR Cars

I established A R Cars in 1986 and traded successfully as an independent used car dealership in East Sussex for over 30 years, with premises in Peacehaven, Newhaven and most recently at Colestock Cross near Hartfield.

Time marches on, however, and I have now semi-retired, moved away from the volume car business, and work in a more leisurely fashion from peaceful and beautifully situated rural premises in Burwash, East Sussex.

I specialise in the sale of classic and collectable cars and motorcycles and offer a small range of carefully selected vehicles sourced from the length and breadth of the country. I aim to offer good quality cars and bikes which are in sound roadworthy condition and can be used and enjoyed with pride straight away. I tend to steer away from Concours or show standard vehicles on grounds of price and lack of useability, and also from "projects" which can easily turn into an expensive and frustrating experience. Whilst most of my cars and bikes are now road tax and MOT exempt I always ensure that they have a new or long MOT both for  peace of mind and to preserve their history.

I travel extensively to buy my cars (which is why I'm not always easy to get hold of, but if you leave me a message I'll always get back to you as quickly as I can) and I won't buy and offer for sale anything that I wouldn't be proud to own and use myself. Indeed I always try to use my cars personally for a while to to ensure that there are no hidden "bugs", and because I enjoy it!  If you're looking for something specific which I don't have in stock please feel free to give me a call and I'll be happy to see if I can source the right vehicle for you.

All the cars are kept undercover in my well lit premises so viewings in bad weather or the hours of darkness are not a problem. As I have always done, every vehicle is HPI checked to avoid unpleasant surprises from the past! 

I try to describe every vehicle accurately and hope that, with the accompanying photographs, you'll be able to get a good impression of its condition. Please feel free to call me on 07860 726219 if you need any more information.

Even more than with modern cars, however, viewing classics "in the metal" is essential, and you're very welcome to visit, by appointment please, and have a good long look around the cars, listen to them running, read through the history files, and take a good test drive to confirm your decision. There'll be no pressure from me to buy but I will be pleased to give you as much help and information as I can.

Thank you for your interest.
