Consumers can purchase unfinished hot rods by visiting hot rod and classic car classifieds sites such as AutoTraderClassics.com, HotRodHotline.com or RacingJunk.com and looking for listings of unrestored or incomplete cars. Auction sites such as eBay.com and local classifieds sites such as Craigslist.org also frequently contain listings for unfinished hot rods.
To locate an unfinished hot rod on AutoTraderClassics.com, a user needs to first conduct a search of the site's available listings. Searches can contain criteria ranging from year of manufacture and car make to price range and location of the seller. Once a user initiates a general search for a type of hot rod, she is able to filter the results to further meet her individual needs. Some results contain details about condition in the title or body description, making it easy to identify unfinished hot rods. However, in some cases a user needs to look at individual listings to see pictures of the car in order to determine if the car is restored or not.
Sites such as Craigslist.org or eBay.com are a great tool for individuals looking for unfinished hot rods because many casual sellers use the site. These types of sellers typically want to get rid of an old car rather than sell a specifically unfinished hot rod, so with a little research a user can identify many viable listings.
