3 Tips on Buying THE Muscle Car


1. DON'T BE AFRAID TO CALL AN EXPERIENCED CAR RESTORATION SHOP FOR ADVICE.
When you're looking into buying a project car, it's smart to have the help of someone who knows about auto restoration.

  • We can help you with your search for a potential purchase. 
  • During our search, we can help you by providing feedback on the current condition and potential value of the vehicles you're interested in. 
  • We can also guide you on what parts are available.

Feedback from an expert with a critical eye can save you time and headache down the line.

2. BE SMART ABOUT THE MONEY IT'S GOING TO TAKE TO FULLY RESTORE THE VEHICLE.
Regardless of the vehicle you buy, if it's a classic that needs restoration, you'll be putting some money into it to get it back to its original glory.

  • That doesn't mean that every vehicle is worth restoring. 
  • Some old cars simply can't be saved, so be smart. 
  • Pay attention to the rust situation as well as electrical and mechanical issues. 

While in most cases these issues can be fixed, if they're in seriously poor shape it's probably not going to be worth your time or money to sink into such a draining project.

3. BUY SOMETHING THAT WILL KEEP ITS VALUE LONG TERM.
Finding old cars for sale that need restoration won't be a problem. Finding old cars that hold their value or will significantly increase value after restoration is a whole different story.

  • Some vehicles will never hold value worth your money put in no matter how carefully they're restored. 
  • Take time to do extensive research to determine which models are more valuable and don't impulsively settle on a particular model just because you're fond of it. 
  • A car with appreciation potential might cost more to buy, but it's important to remember that the cost of the car is only a small part of the total project cost.
