Cheap classic cars for sale can be found through online auctions websites such as eBay, or through specialized classic car listings websites like ClassicCars.com. In most cases, inventory and pricing frequently change due to the availability and demand of specific cars, as well as the condition of the vehicle.
EBay features a special section dedicated solely to the sale of classic and vintage automobiles. The site allows anyone to create an account and post vehicles or other items for sale, beginning with a base starting price. Once the item has been posted, other users are able to view the sale and place a bid on the item with a monetary amount above the current highest bid. Auctions are only available for a limited time, meaning that once the auction closes, the item is sold to the user that placed the highest bid. Some items are also sold with a special immediate-purchase price that allows a user to pay one fee to avoid waiting for the auction timer to end.
As of 2015, ClassicCars.com allows businesses and individuals to create listings of classic cars for sale. Listings contain the asking price, pictures of the vehicle and a detailed description that includes maintenance information.
