Cranky Ape is an online bidding platform that sells cars with either sedan or coupe body styles. The makes, models and years of manufacture offered fluctuate but are updated on the website.
The Minnesota-based auction business specializes in reselling bank-repossessed cars and cars on consignment. This is why the variety of cars offered often varies. Just about any kind of sedan or coupe-style car from any decade can appear on Cranky Ape as long as it meets the site's requirements.
Examples of newer cars that have been featured on Cranky Ape include a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze and a 2006 BMW 530xi. Some examples of older vehicles that have been on the website include a 1966 Ford Mustang and a 1979 Pontiac Trans AM. Some cars are also sporty. For example, the website gets car models such as the Maserati Cambiocorsa Coupe and the Dodge Viper GTS Coupe. Cranky Ape also features trucks, SUVs and vans, but they are listed under separate categories.
Although Cranky Ape is an online platform, it has six physical locations across five states: Minnesota, Georgia, Arizona, Indiana and Texas. Any buyers who are residents in those states are required to get a title and registration from Cranky Ape. Depending on the paperwork needed, titles may take up to eight weeks to process. There are also different procedures for each state.
