Welcome to Mierlo Oldtimer. We’ve tried to keep it low cost: no staff and a simple though charming and warm building.

We’ve started to import cars from the (Western) USA over 30 years ago, and since 20 years also from Italy. Over the last years our buying focus moved from USA to Europe.
Traditionally we are specialized in English cars to be restored, like e.g. MG A and B Triumph TR 2 to 6, Austin Healey and Jaguar. In addition, we also like to buy classic exotics and special Mercedes.

Currently we have a wide variety of cars in stock, ranging from restoration project to ready to drive off.

You’re more than welcome to visit us : by appointment only !

In July 2005 this article appeared about our company in the brilliant magazine “Men for all Seasons”. When summer starts, they suddenly reappear: strawberries, asparagus, summer dresses and …. convertibles. Endless numbers of cabriolets, driving around in the sun. “The connoisseur drives a classic” is our motto. Report from our topless domain.
