New research released by HonestJohn.co.uk reveals the top 10 most endangered Biritsh cars. Of the 10 on the list, all have a survival rate of well below 1% - i.e. those now on the road as compared to the number of which were originally manufactured. The research was carried out through examination of DVLA records of classic cars registered between 1950 and 1995, and takes in to account the number of cars both legally on the road or having been registered as being off-road. The top ten are listed below - along with the number of them that were built, the number remaining, and the surviving percentage:
