Friday’s Market Place

I enjoy looking on the net for cars that are for sale or just look good to use on Pewsplace. Ebay, Craigslist, and Fordbarn are just a few of the sites I follow daily. Some real deals are available on cars in this market. Sure there are dreamers who still are asking way over market for their cars, but others are realistic and wanting to sell them.

With the market in a downturn, it is the time to buy a completed one rather than build one from a frame up. Completed cars normally can be changed to make them yours for a few dollars. If you want major changes then continue to look for one that needs only a wheel and tire change or some detailing.

Details make or break the cars looks and value so having the car detailed will increase the value to most buyers. The cost of detailing can be minimal or very expensive depending on who you use and what needs to be detailed. I do most of the detailing myself and farm out the hard stuff like gaps and paint work. Interior carpets are usually in need of detailing or replaced. Sometimes they can be cleaned if not too bad. You would be surprised at how much more a detailed car will be worth.

Detailing shops are readily available in our area and they come to your house or you can take it to their business location. A detailer with a lift is a plus if your undercarriage is in need a good cleaning. They also have some real good people who can bring back that faded paint on your new purchase. I have seen some amazing transformation on paint.

I have some cars shown below that would be desirable and may or may not need some changes or detailing to make them yours. Are you in the market? Pewsplace always has some quality cars for sale. If you have one for sale, please let me know and I will list it. The cost is FREE!

Stay Tooned!

Sedan Delivery’s are commercial vehicles that were very practical and the first vans.

Note huge gap in hood to grille. Common on 40’s.
The 40 had a roof line that needs some adjustment in the bows to flow better.
The unusual color on this wagon looks good to me.
Woodies should be looked over real carefully for deteriorated  wood.
If you prefer to build your own Woodie them purchase a kit for Hercules and have fun like  Steve is.
If you want to save time and money, then buy a done one and make it yours.

I went to look at this restored convertible  which was basically stock. I have done this in the past and love making it mine. Dropped axle, SBC and 9″ made it mine…no expensive paint or upholstery required.
Don’s old Deuce would make a great car for your summer fun.
The rear view is pure Hot Rod.
