Drive it Home – 1966 Plymouth Fury For Sale – $6,000

By Cody Clark Not everyone needs a screaming eight-liter muscle car. For the discerning family man, this driver-quality 1966 Plymouth Fury for sale on Craigslist for $6,000 near Seattle boasts classic lines, an anemic slant six, and endless possibilities. Subtle upgrades like a new transmission make this example a practical one-size-fits-most time capsule that the seller claims is ready for highway cruises and city jaunts alike. If you truly could go back in time and choose a car off the street, this Fury would likely be the first car you saw. So would you choose the practical over the excessive?  1966 Plymouth Fury Exterior & Interior On the exterior of the car, driver-quality paint is draped over classic pinstripes stamped right into the body of the car. Faux center...

Caribbean Classic – 1984 Chevrolet Caprice 8 Seat Wagon – $9,900

By Cody Clark Tony Montana’s life began to unravel in a Crown Victoria wagon. If you play your cards better and choose this 1984 Chevrolet Caprice wagon instead, perhaps it will be the start of a great story rather than the beginning of the end. Presumably featuring a 5-liter V8 that ambitiously belted 150 screaming horsepower when new, a slew of new parts, and rear-facing seats over the driven wheels, the world can be yours in this wood-lined land yacht available on Craigslist for $9,900 in Pembroke Pines, FL. This generation of Caprice represented GM’s campaign to downsize the family car. It’s hard to believe this car shows any commitment to downsizing. A cursory search says that a wagon like this would be nearly 18 feet long, which is 2022 Toyota Tacoma territory. But it is r...

Coming or Going? Dual Nose 1941 Dodge For Sale

Some cars look stunning coming straight at you, while others glisten when their tail lights glow. In the case of the looks of this 1941 Dodge, it really doesn't matter which way it is going! This unique build features dual noses, steering wheels, dashboards and everything else needed to mirror its image front to rear, or is that front to front? It even has two working radios! Any way you look at it, you're sure to get a few confused gazes as you cruise down the street. It appears that confusion started long ago, assuming the newspaper clipping included in the ad (pictured below) is about the same car. More on that in a minute. If you're interested in angering fellow commuters or having a grand ole time in the parade, you can buy this 1941 Dodge "Luxury Liner Dual Nose" in Los Angeles ...

Cheap Classic -1988 Chevrolet Camaro for sale – $4,950

It's no IROZ-Z, but this 1988 Chevy Camaro for sale on Craigslist in Tacoma, Washington sure stands out in a crowd. While a lot of the vehicles we feature on this site need a little TLC, this one just needs someone to put the pedal to the metal. While you may have to wait a few months to drop its top, this third generation Chevrolet Camaro appears ready to rip. At a hair under $5,000, this seems to be a steal of a deal. Hurry though, this Camaro convertible was listed less than an hour ago. 1988 Camaro Engine Under the hood is a transplanted, fuel injected 305 V8 that the seller claims has less than 50,000 miles on it. If it is original spec, it would put out about 195 horsepower, connected to an automatic transmission. Aside from that, they don't offer any additional inform...

Rod or Restore? 5 Cheap Classic Car Projects for Sale on Craigslist

So, you've just found the perfect project car. You're pumped, for sure, but there's still one question burning in the back of your mind, "What the heck do I do with this thing?" Obviously there are a million directions to take a build, but when it comes down to do, it can be as simple as, "Rod or restore.?" While the answer to this question is obvious with some vehicles, with others it can be a tough call. Whether you're an automotive purist or a hot rodder at heart, making that decision regarding these classic car projects could prove difficult. Let's take a look. 1932 Plymouth Project for Sale The seller of this 1932 Plymouth for sale on Craigslist in Whatcom County, WA for $4,500 doesn't offer a whole lot of information on it, but it sure looks original based on the short des...

Survivor For Sale: 1958 Edsel Pacer – $8,000

In honor of today's automotive history lesson, in which Ford announced the impending end of Edsel production, I dug up a 1958 Edsel for sale on Craigslist a bit east of Los Angeles. Edsel cars s rolled out of the assembly line for 1958, 1958 and 1960, though workers assembly only 2,846 1960 models before the shut down. Over that time, just 118,297 left the factory. This makes pretty much any Edsel rare, especially considering Ford's mass production intent. What we have here is a 1958 Edsel Pacer sedan, one of the most common models. Still, it's something special, especially in this survivor state. The seller doesn't offer a ton of clear information, but what's there paints a pretty picture. Let's take a closer look. 1958 Edsel Pacer Engine & Mechanicals The seller of this '5...

Cheap Classic: 1958 Packard Wagon – $5,000

Oh, Packard, what may have been? One can only imagine all of the faux wood trim and bulbous curves that has been missed out on since Packard's demise. Giving us a final glimpse of hope from the once great marque is this 1958 Packard Station Wagon. Being just one of 1-of-159 made in Packard's final year of production, the company didn't even bother coming up with a unique model name. Though rare, this formerly glamorous automobile may look familiar. After about a quarter century in storage, it came out of the collection of Ron Hackenberger, better known for his Studebakers. He sent it under the gavel, along with about 600 of his other vehicles, in 2018, selling it for $5,500. It's been floating around the web ever since in what seems to be a never ending cycle of for-salery. Currently ...

Cruiser or Loser – Cheetah print 1977 Cadillac Eldorado for Sale – $6,295

What's got purple paint, cheetah print interior and a V8? Alright, it's not much of a riddle since you clicked on the picture to get here, but come on! Check out this 1977 Cadillac Eldorado for sale on Craigslist in Omaha, Nebraska (Go Huskers!) for $6,295. While I probably wouldn't bat an eye at most late 70s Caddys, this thing sure is striking. Unfortunately the seller doesn't say too much about it or provide nearly enough pictures of this, uh, beauty, but let's see what we can decipher. What's a pimpmobile? Sure, the purple paint is what first got my attention, but the cheetah print interior on this Eldorado kept me from surfing away. Based on the ad, it is hard to tell if the current seller did the car up like this or if it has some history that isn't shared. In either ...

Cheap(ish) Mopar – One Owner 1971 Dodge Charger – $8,800

It may not be a Hemi, but it's got a V8! This 1971 Dodge Charger for sale just popped up on Craigslist near Tacoma, Washington, with the seller claiming it to be a single family car since new. This basic muscle car is a little rough around the edges and it's showing a little gray (literally, see below for the primer shots), but it'll clean up well. With cars like this going for near $30,000 in slightly better condition, I believe this here's a pretty dang good deal. Let's take a closer peek. This green Dodge Charger 500 is equipped with the 318 V8 and an automatic, possibly the same ones it left the factory with, but it doesn't say for sure. Correct me if I am wrong, but with base muscle, I believe matching numbers are less critical to value. In any case, it may not be the most excitin...
Rare Truck: 1940 Plymouth PT105, not PT109

Rare Truck: 1940 Plymouth PT105, not PT109

Chances are, you're more familiar with PT-109, the ill-fated patrol torpedo boat commanded by John. F. Kennedy during World War II, than you are with PT105. Rightfully so, seeing as nobody ever made a movie about PT105. That's understandable, seeing as the story of PT105 is not quite as exciting, seeing as it's a fairly run of the mill pickup truck made by Plymouth in 1940. The thing is, Plymouth didn't make a whole lot of trucks, and only 6,879 that year, making this example found on Craigslist outside of Bozeman fairly rare. Yet, as we know, rare does not always mean valuable. So for just $4,500 you can bring this 1940 Plymouth truck PT105 home and do whatever you want with it. Restore? Sure! Hot rod? Probably. While you figure out your build, let's see what's included. These tru...
