The pandemic has many many downsides, but at least it has driven down the prices of cars for all us
window internet shoppers. Of course, it is also a tremendously crappy time to have to sell a car to make ends meet, so my heart goes out to many of the private sellers here. But let’s just enjoy some of these amazing deals to take our minds off the present situation.
As always, let’s start off with something really rare.
The title of the ad promises this is a Mercury, but the actual ad text says otherwise. By the way. it’s pronounced Mare-Coor. At any rate, the 87k miles is not disputed, and the overall condition has potential, though somewhat marred by the fogged up headlamps and a dash ‘o many cracks.
For a rare clean titled project with lowish mileage, $3,000 seems pretty cheap.
How about some David Tracy bait? Complete with 4 liter straight six w/ only 120k on the odo, 5 speed manual, vent windows, and sans extraneous doors, how can you go wrong? I guess the disgusting upholstery might turn some buyers away, since it appears something spilled or water leaked in in great quantities.
We don’t get a good look at it and it appears to be at a shady buy-here-pay-here place, but a favorable inspection might make this a hidden gem if you are willing to give that interior a good scrubbing.
This guy knows what he has.
This 170,000 mile machine caught me off guard with just how good it looks for that mileage. Just look at those seats. Sure the trim in some areas, such as the door pulls, are a little ragged, but this appears to have been well taken car of.
The front end shows what appears to be a few scuffs, a dent or two, and a missing BMW roundel under what appears to be bird poop, but this seems like a nice car for that price with a little bodywork. Even better with a little negotiation.
This is basically a new car with only 30,000 miles spread out over 5 years. And it has the 5 speed. The three previous owners is bit worrying, but this is only about $1k more expensive than 100k mile 500 Pops.
This 100,000 mile Pop convertible is a little cheaper than average at $4,500, and I like the color combo better, but that extra grand really buys you a lot of value here.
This seller apparently thinks the raw horsepower is the biggest selling point of the TT, which has led them to charge just $4,000 for the 100k mile roadster.
Everyone laughed at the previous post’s cheap but broken TT, so I thought I would include this one here. For only double the price you get a (temporarily) working masterpiece!
2004 Toyota Tacoma - $6,000
But is the Tacoma Tax exempt?
No. No it is not.
So, what did you think of this list? If I had to choose a two car garage out of these, I would take the Merkur and the Tacoma. What about you guys?
