Welcome to the updated website of Classic Car Publishing Ltd. - thank you for visiting! If you have been here before, please have another close look - we have recently added a lot more information... 


 Are you interested in buying, driving, looking after and having fun with old cars? If the answer is "yes", you have found the right site, because so are we! Our aim is to produce some exciting new publications (written for enthusiasts by enthusiasts) which we feel sure you will find of interest...

AVAILABLE NOW!!! The first of a new series of books on "accessible" classic vehicles - cars we all know and love, but which are often overlooked by book publishers in favour of more exotic machinery. We should like to redress the balance.


BUY IT AT BEAULIEU!! Our much-praised Austin A30/A35 'Accessible Classics' book, which has received rave reviews from the press and buyers alike, is now available over the counter from the Gift Shop at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, in the New Forest, Hampshire.
 The Museum (together with the historic Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey), is an amazing and fascinating place. It's well worth a day out - even if you have been before, it has definitely changed since you last visited. If you do visit, have a look in the Gift Shop, adjacent to the entrance hall. Our book is available there, among many other prestigious titles covering all aspects of motoring history.
For more information about the National Motor Museum, call (01590) 612345, or visit www.beaulieu.co.uk
