At Classic V8 Sales we have spent years establishing ourselves as the State of the Art Classic Car Digital Marketing Company. We have made countless Classic Car dreams come true for buyers & sellers worldwide!

We Don’t Get Paid until your vehicle is sold!

At Classic V8 Sales, you will sign a 90 day exclusive net listing with our agency. Every vehicle is set with a reserve price to match the current market value. After we sell your car, you are guaranteed to get that reserve amount, unless you authorize us to lower it. Only when your car sells do you pay us! When your car does sell, our fee structure is $1,500 plus 5% of the sales price. Transparency is our goal from the beginning to the end of the sales process.

Our Classic V8 Sales Agent comes to you to take 100+ pictures and HD video of your classic ride. Your title and car stays securely with you. We only need a copy of the title to ensure ownership and correct VIN#; you keep the original with you until the vehicle sells.

We succeed at selling 85% of our client’s classic vehicles. Our history of sales shows we get better values for our sellers by marketing the vehicle to our worldwide buyer network on over 70 of the top worldwide vehicle sales websites including ClassicCars.com, Carsonline.com, OldRide.com and many more. We have a wide variety of buyers, many of whom demand excellent customer service, which we are able to offer.

What is the process?

Please be advised that due to security concerns and potential fraud, we do not negotiate the purchase of a vehicle via e-mail. Call us to discuss an offer over the phone. Then it’s simply getting your funds in order. In most cases, a good faith deposit will hold the car off of the market for 7 days. Once balance is paid in full, Title and Bill of Sale will be UPS overnight delivery, directly to the buyer from the seller & shipping will be scheduled by our world class transportation companies.

Where is a car located?

We don’t list vehicle location in order to protect the identity of our sellers. Buyers call or email us, and once they have been verified, we are happy to provide them with the location.

Can I get more pictures?

Our Professional Classic V8 Sales Agent often have more photographs than the website can showcase and we know that having more pictures is important in the process of helping you make a confident purchase. Each specialist has spent time with the sellers, and has inspected and driven the vehicle. Please call and our professional Classic V8 Agent will get you any pictures you would like.

Can I talk to a vehicle’s owner directly?

Yes. Please call our 1-800 number and we will connect you with the Sales Agent who listed the vehicle. Once you have talked to him/her, they can put you in touch with the seller if that is necessary.

Do you appraise?

Yes. Our agent visits your vehicle, shoots photos and HD video, and talks to you about the particulars that make your classic car unique. We then use this information along with recent sales data from NADA, Hagerty’s, and other sites, to help you determine the fair market value for your vehicle.

Do you offer shipping?

Yes. We offer our buyers shipping using Nationwide Transportation. They are licensed and insured and provide excellent service. Our Classic V8 Sales Agent will help you throughout the shipping process.

Do you offer financing?

Yes. We offer our buyers financing using JJ’s Best Auto Insurance. They are specialists in classic car financing and can offer competitive rates even on 7 year loan terms. Our Classic V8 Sales Agent will help you throughout the financing process.

How do I know I will get a car and title after sending my money?

Classic V8 Sales processes many transactions monthly without an issue. Your money goes into a corporate escrow account similar to what real estate brokers use. Only when the Classic V8 Sales Agent has title in hand from the buyer will the money be released to the seller. The title is then sent in an overnight envelope straight to you. If, for whatever reason, your car does not arrive in the condition you expected, Classic V8 Sales is insured and will help you to return the vehicle and get your money back.

How do you take payment?

Most transactions are handled via electronic wire transfer. The buyer wires money to our escrow account and then then release funds to the seller, he/she signs and notarizes the title and we then over night title to the buyer.

Do you take trade ins?

Because Classic V8 Sales doesn’t own or consign any of the vehicles, we do not take trade-ins. However, if you find a vehicle that you love and would like to offer a trade to the seller, you may call our Sales Agent and they will propose the trade to the seller.

Are all of your cars on the website?

Yes. All of our cars that we list are pushed to our partner websites within 24 hours.
