Welcome to Classic American Car Sales
About Peter and Ron:
Peter Cavallo is a US expat living in Essex with a life long passion for classic cars and Mustangs in particular. While Growing up in the USA, Peters’ parents always had a few 65 or 66 Mustang convertibles in the garage and his father’s appetite for buying classic cars has continued to this current day. This family love of classic cars and classic Mustangs in particular has certainly influenced Peter who now has insatiable appetite for searching out and purchasing classics from the United States with an emphasis on 60s Mustangs, Fastbacks and Coupes a specialty. We also search out 67-69 Camaros and other 60s cars that catch our eye due to their iconic design status and awesome condition
Peter’s association with Ron Fenton, his partner in Classic American Car sales, started after many years of Peter utilising Ron’s import company, STS Imports, to bring in several 60’s Mustangs for himself. After seeing the massive interest and excitement these imported cars generated in the UK market, Peter decided it was time to join forces with Ron in a new business venture and now the pair have set up Classicamericancarsales.co.uk in order to bring top quality American Muscle and pony cars to discerning customers in the UK and Mainland Europe. Recent sales have been to Portugal, France and Germany. Peter’s current stable of personal classic cars include a 1966 Shelby GT350 and a 1967 Shelby GT350 clone. His wife Louise also thoroughly enjoys her 1972 MG convertible her 2016 imported 1952 MG TD brings a smile to her face when she drives it.
Ron is Ron Fenton from STS Imports, a well established US-UK import business which will bring anything non-perishable that fits into a container or rolls onto a ship into the UK. Aside from the dozens of customers cars that have been imported on a roll on roll off basis (the way most new cars are shipped by cargo ship including BMWS, Range rovers and Mercedes) Ron also brings in 10-12 shipping containers per year filled with cars/planes/boats/large machinery/engines and car parts on a consolidation basis. Items are ordered by UK customers and forwarded to a warehouse his company, STS Imports, operates in the USA. After arrival in Miami Florida USA the items are catalogued and put into the next departing container for direct shipment to the UK. Once the container has arrived in the UK the items are unloaded at his site, the customers are called and then their goods can either be collected at STS Imports in Essex, or delivered directly to their door by courier.
Because of Ron’s importing experience and excellent reputation in the shipping industry and his large well equipped garage and his ability to facilitate the repair, welding, assembling, re-wiring, painting and building up of anything on four wheels, Ron was a perfect fit as the other half of Classic American car sales. Ron also has a personal cache of cool cars, A 351W powered Ford Torino convertible that is now painted matte black and has a rebuilt 351 awaiting its install into the engine bay, a pepper Grey and black striped Eleanor that is currently in the garage and being assembled after receiving a mirror finish paint job (Now painted and also has a radical looking 351 waiting to be placed under its stunning bonnet. His wife Deb is looking forward to the Triumph Stag that is also being restored in the workshops (now in primer with all body work done)
