Since I have no money for anything, naturally I’ve been checking CL for cars that I can never own and bitterly crying myself to sleep. These four cars; the Comache, Volvo 245, Cutlass wagon, and Corolla wagon; all appear to be in good shape. But is the price fair? You be the judge oppo.
Someone at church inspired me to look at CL listings, since I found out he was fixing up a Dodge Warlock.. No idea if these CL cars are NP or CP though. The price is cheap, and from the pics the body looks [mostly] decent too. Of course, that means nothing in the long run.
$11k for a clean ‘63 Riviera
What we have here is a 1970 Mercedes-Benz 220D wagon that some enterprising soul has hacked into a sweet Benzamino. It’s diesel. It’s manual. It’s beige, but with what appears to be a primer-black roof. Tri-tone, if you count “rust” as a color, as I do. It’s classy (look at those body-color Benz wheels!). It only had…
They come up semi-frequently around here, almost always with a 360, auto, and wood paneling. I’d prefer the straight 6 with a manual, but I’ve actually never seen one for sale.
Line set at 30 days. I’ve got the over, tree-fiddy.
I’m currently selling my 1-Series on Craigslist and while I’ve actually received a ton of legitimate interest and look to have the car sold to one of two buyers by the end of the week (after two days on CL!), I woke up to this email and could not help but be tickled at the Craigslistyness of it:
Well, not just that. I’ve always had a soft spot for these little cars - I even had a poster of one in my room when I was a kid.
$750 for a fairly simple project? Tempting...
Yesterday I got a call to buy a Harbor Frieght ladder rack I bought years ago and never installed. Weirdly, I got a second call from another person who wanted to buy it literally like three minutes later. This after it being listed on Craigslist for weeks. The first caller got here first, paid me my asking price in…
How about no.
Read this ad. You’ll be all like:
Well I guess the proof is in the pudding now. Price went from $2800, to $2300, to $1800 — and now the ad says it has a bad headgasket too. Hmm! He certainly didn’t mention that at any point with me. Must have slipped his mind.
When you find a vehicle you’ve always wanted for a great price, but you just had a conversation with your wife about needing to be better savers.
If this is the “Little Dent on the Tank” just how “flawless” should we really expect this to be mechanically?
1965 Chevy Corvair Monza sedan for $800! And it runs! Link here. It’s also a manual! I already have plans for it in my head. I’d love to have an old classic, and something as unique as a rear engined Chevy sedan would be awesome.
Every once in a while, a gem of an ad shows up. This one for a 1999 Explorer for $3200 sure does deliver. Full text and screenshot below:
I know what I have
Okay. Full disclosure. I almost killed myself in it.
