Where would be the best place to try and sell my car. I was thinking about ebay due to not really knowing what to ask. But not to thrilled with some of their new policies. Where have you had good results? Where to stay away from? Thanks

Depends on the car and the price range. If it is an average car that you figure might sell locally then just advertise it locally. If it is a special car that might need a bigger audience then advertise it nationally. I sold my Duster last summer on Craigslist. It sold in 24 hours for $25,000.

Mecum's Kissimmee auction in January sure seems to bring good money.

I'm just wondering how much a seller actually nets after the fees, commissions and whatnot.

Great question, I wonder if anyone has solid info on say a car one expected to get 50k for and one for 100k. How does it all break down and how much added is put on the buyer?

Research pricing on your car by looking at closed auctions on ebay and past auctions from Mecum and Barrett Jackson. Once you come up with a price list it on Cars Online, Hemmings and sites like Moparts

I don't know the specifics, but a friend of mine sold a '60s vintage Corvette through a private consignment guy and was very happy with how it turned out.

Be sure to get a reserve wherever you list. I talked to a guy about a 69 rr that went on BaT. He was told the estimate was over 50k, and they really wanted him to go no reserve. Maybe even got a fee cut. Car only brought in the 30s.

Always a lot of smoke and mirrors with a live auction, so I’d want one there as well.

These days I’d try the free or low insert fee route before I committed to selling with a third party that will want a big cut. You’ve got places like mopar sites, cl, YouTube, faceybooky, cars on line, and more.


I want my fair share

If you have an honest and desirable Mopar muscle car, try selling it here with no fees. You may be able to get around some taxes as well. You could do a feeler in the WIW section.

I use to like www.carsonline.com but now you can't even call them to make a change on your ad. There online edit section doesn't accept your email address when you originally signed up with.
Something has changed with their website.
I think they've gotten too big for their britches.

A million details missing to properly answer.

Without all those details, I'd say bring a trailer. I've sold a couple no reserve and was happy with the result.

It all depends on what you're selling. If it's something normal and not overly high value do it locally. Otherwise these days I'd probably use bring a trailer.
There still seems to be a lot of stuff on ebay that's sold for higher prices but there's also a lot of re-listings.

Yep^^ I sold a 72 Cutlass Convert a couple years back on Facebook Marketplace. It was sold(for my asking price) delivered and paid for in cash in 24 hrs.

I sure miss the old website Hemi.net . Only thing on there was cool Mopars. Only took a couple minutes each day to look at new postings. I bought my 70 Hemi Charger on there back in 2001. Still regret not buying the 71 Hemi Super Bee road test car that was on there for $42K back then.

Facebook Marketplace or one of the many Mopar sites on Facebook. Everyone I know searches there. Bring A Trailer seems to garner really good prices but not sure what their fee scale is. We just bought a 70 Challenger T/A on Hemmings Auctions today. Fees were steep but vehicles seem to bring good money there too.

Mine was over 60K 3 years ago. the buyer sent a 5K deposit overnight. When it cleared I overnighted the title. he sent the remaining $$. When it cleared he had it picked up. having an established business may have helped as well as a clean background if he checked. I did check his wink
