Old car bargains from around the Web

Recommended Posts

That Buick looks like a great deal, although it would be nice to know what kind of mechanical shape it's in.  The dash looks to be in excellent shape, and the rest of the interior as well (assuming no rodents, that is). 😄

Been a while since a post here so i thought I would post my 4600 dollar 63 Dodge 880 Custom bargain I just bought to keep the thread going.  I wanted an old Dodge for going back and forth to work, readily available parts that I could tinker on.  These shared about everything with the Chryslers at the time and also the Polara's.  Receipts for Rebuilt trans, carb, fuel pump. Think I see new/ rebuilt distributor, new wires, master.. BUT like all bargains they need help.  How many scary things can you see in this picture?  HA   Claimed as a inherited car that he lost interest in.   I think I did good.

Looks like a good buy.  I have seen a few that were decent priced cars but no real screaming bargains so I haven't posted much.  Thanks for reviving the thread to make it easier to find when something actually does come along.

I am thinking the dog days of summer have set in. Folks looking forward to Labor Day.  I know here in Texas it above normal dog days with high humidity and high heat. 100+ who wants to do anything at the end of the day when the garage is that hot?

Just stumbled across this.  If it was any closer I would be going after it.  About the cheapest intact A I have seen in a long time in this price range.

 

This one has to be a deal.  YEs I know you can buy a pretty nice one for 10G but this is $4400. I remember when they wanted that for a shell with patch panels a few years ago.

That's what I thought.  If I wasn't 6 hours away,  I would be on the road.  Seems every nice car I found or bargain I could make a buck on is atleast 4 hours away.  I have one I'm semi serious about,  but that's out on Long Island.  Far enough I would have to take the Ferry from CT to go look at it,  but it is one of the cars on my bucket list in , what looks like good shape at a reasonable price.  Of course that's probably a 6 hour ordeal each way as well. We'll have to see how good it really is.  I'm sill waiting on really good photos.   Unfortunately  it's not an Auburn.  I don't have the funds to play in that toy room yet.

Of Course.  If I post every good deal on here,  How am I going to get one myself?  

Really only one though.  I'm not sure how good a deal it is yet until i see the photos. 

I'll give you a hint it's not prewar :(  but it is pre Muscle car :) 

That should narrow it down a bunch. ;) 

 

The No Title depends.  In NY it's not impossible to get a clear transferable registration as long as you have a good clean vin on the car and you are pretty sure of the history.  Fresh out of a barn from the owner who has had it the last 20 years or more,  you are probably pretty good,  especially if it's not a Ferrari or some rare big block Vette.  A model A without one bought this way wouldn't bother me too much.  Now if you are buying it off a flipper with no history and it's at all a desirable car,  then I would shy away.

My guess is a 57 Chrysler 300 with a 392 in it.

Of coarse I'm a bit biased.

Nope not a Mopar,  though the right one could easily fill a vacant garage spot.  No photos yet so I'll have to bug the guy for some more.  I have seen the pretty overall photos,  I want the dirty nook and crannies photos.  They tell more than the pretty overall shots. 

One more clue ,  it's a convertible.  I haven't had a new old ragtop in several years.

I saw it on ebay last night.  Sounds a bit strange,  but maybe he knows ebay all and well,  and 4000 cash is better than a 6000 phantom bidder that is MIA when it comes time to pay. 

 

 

Not a jeepster,  though I did see what looked like a decent one, not as nice as yours for I think it was 4500 or 5500 and it ran and drove.  I probably should have posted it here,  but Not every bargain makes it here and it may not really be a bargain,  just reasonable priced as I'm sure you saw when you posted yours,  there are alot of crappy ones for near 10 that need everything.

Randy- Like your thread. People might look at the HHfranklin web sight; a real steel for a 25 Franklin that a person paid for a start of restoration on a 1925 Franklin and has for sale at $7000.

Motor alone cost more than that to get rebuilt. frame modification is completed, nickel plating started, body  looks and ugly interior(my opinion) like its a prior restoration. Looks like some one restoration update on a nice driver to begin with. Body is sitting on chassis.Take a look.. I don't know how to get sight on here.

Understand the project end.  I wouldn't have posted this Franklin but it does look promising in an attractive style and isn't a field car like some of the others discussed.  I think the price is $2340 but that's an odd number.   It's also listed under antiques and not cars so most people won't find it there.  I only found it doing my morning Literature search for my business because it comes with a bunch of literature / repair manuals.  

hello
Is the Franklin project still available?

You'll have to check the Craigslist listing.  I just reposted it here.  If there is a number in the posting,  try it.

Go to the Franklin Club website and the classifieds.  It is still posted for sale.

I enjoy watching this guy on youtube as he has an every day approach to driver cars on a budget and is in it for the fun. Very entertaining.  He just posted this show about his walk through of a yard in SD he used to work at with cars for sale. Lots of Buicks.  Good mix of 70's through 40's.  Parts car deals.

See I knew it was a deal when I posted it.  

It is kind of annoying when I see a car listed on craigslist with a price,  then on Hemmings with a price and again on ebay with bidding all in the same day.   I guess it won't be available when it finally makes it into print.  I can see marketing it on the fixed price outlets,  and even Ebay as a fixed price listing,  but it makes it confusing when you have it on all three or more,  sometimes even with conflicting info.
