It’s become quite easy to sell a car in modern times—almost too easy. Still, there is a proliferation of listings that lack information or detail. Amidst the garbage there is still plenty of good ads out there that include everything a seller wants, but you might have to set aside some time to suss out the good from the bad.
Hagerty Barn Find Hunter, Tom Cotter, has a knack for finding vintage iron without the help of search engines or online ad aggregators. But you can only imagine how many of the cars he finds would be gone in an instant if the seller only knew how to market it with the right ad description.
When Tom scoured South Carolina for an episode of Barn Find Hunter, this Austin Healey 3000 was one of many cars he saw there. It looks to be fairly worse for wear, but to the right buyer it certainly has some potential.

If you were writing the cheeky Craigslist ad for this Healey, how would you craft it?
