In the early 2000’s Ebay served as the gateway to classic car ownership for many. Now not so much!
Craigslist, Bring A Trailer Auctions, and Facebook Market place have take the reins.
In 2006 I sold a 1965 Corvair Monza Project car, this car would run if gas was hand feed to one of the two rochester carbs and sported a 2 speed power glide trans. Also included in sale was a spare engine.
In the listing I included many pictures and stated that the car did not run and would require a trailer.
A few days later a gentlemen showed up to pick up the car and was surprised to find a car in non running condition! we had to air up the tires to push the car on to the trailer and we where well on our way.
Later that night I received the dreaded neutral feed back, stating that I could have prepared the car better for delivery.
What are your experiences with buying classic cars online?
