Where to Buy Classic Cars

Published by Joe Webster.

Where to Buy Classic Cars

In the United States, classic car auctions are a billion dollar business, and it only seems to be getting bigger. In 2015, there was over $1.45 billion in classic car auction sales. This represents an increase of over 12% in comparison to 2014. Both the sales numbers and the collection of classic cars that are available on the market have continued to increase.

But, if you're a classic car enthusiast and are thinking of buying one or more cars for the first time for your collection, you may be wondering where to begin.

Top Places to Purchase a Classic Car.

The following is a list of the top places to view and purchase classic cars:

eBay Motors

Believe it or not, eBay is an excellent source for classic cars, especially for those just starting their collections. You can visit eBay.com/motors and will be able to view classic car listings from sellers worldwide. Be sure to check the ratings and reviews of the sellers and to read the fine print of each listing to make sure that you'd be eligible to purchase the vehicle. It can help to message the seller and ask about any additional shipping options that he or she has not listed.

Hemmings

Hemmings has been a long-time provider of classic car listings. Gaining its esteemed reputation during its print form years, it's now online at Hemmings.com, where you'll be able to view thousands of classic car listings for sale. This site is a favorite amongst classic car enthusiasts and for good reason.

Where To Buy Classic Cars

MyClassicGarage

This is a new site in comparison to Hemmings, but it has definitely grown considerably in size and reputation recently. You'll also be able to choose from thousands of classic cars that are listed by sellers. Visit MyClassicGarage.com to get started

Craigslist

Yes, craigslist is a viable option to find classic cars for sale. Because of the abundance of different cities on craigslist, it's recommended to use SearchTempest, which is an online site that shows all of the listings in one location. Visit craigslist.org and be sure to also visit searchtempest.com.

ClassicCars.com

ClassicCars.com has one of the widest selections of any of the sources mentioned. Unlike the other sites, however, a large portion of the listings on ClassicCars.com is from car dealerships rather than from individual sellers. This should certainly not discourage you from checking it out, as there are plenty of great listings.

Watch out for any scams or offers that seem too good to be true. It's important to do your due diligence when choosing to purchase a classic car, as you don't want to overpay or pay for something that isn't representative of what's shown on the listing. Craigslist, in particular, is a site that you should be cautious with. There are plenty of great offers available on it, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

One tip is to definitely visit multiple websites in order to broaden your options, especially if you're not sure of what you want. Typing in the type of classic car you want into a Google search can also provide you with possible listings for sale. Good luck!

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
