It seems like just about everyday I am in a different city teaching dealers how to sell on eBay Motors. The cities may change but most of the questions are pretty similar. For this post I thought I would focus on one of the top questions I am asked. Which inventory should I list on eBay Motors? To some this may seem...

This ’73 Road Runner is equipped with 340/235 V8 and original Pistol Grip 4-speed, and the seller says all numbers match, documented with build sheet and body tag. It’s a one-owner car that’s been driven less than 100 miles since 1984, and now wears a $7,000 paint job with fresh graphics. Many interior pieces are new as...

This ’83 Volvo Turbo wears California blue plates and boasts just 92k miles—super low for a 240, considering that the drivetrain on these cars can easily last 300k or 400k miles with regular maintenance. A 4-speed manual (plus overdrive) rounds out the fun-to-drive package. Turbo cars are fun to drive and tend to get...

This bubbletop Bonneville looks like a very appealing alternative to the more common Bel Airs and Impalas.  It appears clean, straight and ready to cruise, with factory power steering and brakes, Wonderbar radio and dual exhaust. The P1 engine number codes out to a 4-bbl carb, meaning the Tri-Power was added...

At first glance, this little Datsun looks like a relatively common vintage Japanese truck. But the first factory-built Datsun/Nissan 4x4s sold in this country didn’t come along until the 1980s, so this is a relatively rare find. The seller doesn’t note much about the 4×4 system in this truck, other than that it features...

Ask a group of car guys what the biggest baddest American muscle car of all time is and you’ll get a handful of answers. But Hemi Cudas will always be near the top of that list, and for good reason. These cars were all about overkill from the start, with their 425-hp 426 Hemi engines, dual quad carburetors, Shaker...

This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is in remarkable condition. It was restored in the late ‘90s and has been documented with GM of Canada papers. It comes with nearly all of the desirable RPO codes: J52 power disc brakes, U17 gauge package and most importantly the Z28 special performance package, among others. Just 602...

Opel introduced the Rallye coupe in 1967 as the performance model of the Kadett lineup. Horsepower was bumped up to 67 from the standard 54 by use of higher compression and twin Solex carburetors. Not bad considering the car only weighed 1,700 lbs. Additional standard equipment included power front discs, dual exhaust...

The weather is gradually warming up, which means Friday and Saturday nights will soon be filled with cacklefests and American iron running up and down drag strips around the country. It might be a little late to start building your own racer from whatever is handy, so take a look at this 1953 Studebaker Champion. It...

This first year Mercury is in remarkable, uncut condition. Even the interior is said to be original, and at 73 years old, it still looks great. The gauges, radio and lights all function, and the body appears very straight and without damage. The chrome trim and moldings show well in all of the photos. Mercury...

Austin-Healey’s Sprite, as it was technically known, was inexpensive to produce—it used many parts already available from Austin, MG, and Morris—and weighed very little. As a result, the cars quickly became popular racers. Enthusiasts took to calling the car “Bugeye” (or “Frogeye” in the U.K.), thanks to its iconic...
