There may not be another genre that delivers the automotive experience to the same extent. You can spend a lot on a roadster depending on type and heritage, but since they’re plentiful in affordable price ranges, they’re also a great point of entry to classic car ownership. Here are five classic British roadsters currently on sale for every budget.

This rust-free '62 British drop-top might be Florida Green, but as far as the Austin-Healey Concours Registry is concerned, it's gold. GOLD Level-worthy, that is. It's also been certified by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust to be a "numbers matching" car.

Recently we ran a feature on an Austin-Healey in The Collector Series–did you enjoy it? Because that glorious 1965 “BJ8” is now for sale on consignment. If there is an Austin-Healey that could be considered a "keeper" due to original documented mileage and history, it’s this one.
"The MkIII addressed many of the streetability issues of the earlier big Healeys and by 1965 the phase 2 had gone even further—namely with a modified suspension and an increased ride height. Phase 2s were long favored by enthusiasts, but the price gap between the two iterations has narrowed and thus might represent a buying opportunity as usability becomes increasingly important for owners."

This 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 is a 2+2 (really) that had an older frame-off restoration performed by a noted Healey shop and used as the shop owner’s personal car. If you enjoy club touring and desire an authentic, comfortable sports car, you’ll find a lot of value in this Austin-Healey.
While the majority of the weekend at Pebble Beach is spent staring at parked cars as if they were art in a museum, Monterey Historics offers a chance to see these cars demonstrating their raw power in a series of races at Laguna Seca. The sights, sounds, and smells of vintage racecars testing their limits and stretching their muscles carry immense weight.

We’ve featured a lot of roadsters in this feature over the past month or so, of which we’re completely unapologetic—when the weather’s this fantastic, there’s simply no other type of car we’d rather be driving. Would you choose a 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 or a 1962 Daimler SP250 Dart?
