How to Buy a Classic Car

       Classic cars are a fun investment, and they’re sure to secure you bragging rights when you take one out for a drive. However, it’s not a purchase to be taken lightly. While there are a lot of great classic cars on the market, some may need a little - or A LOT - of work before they’re considered “roadworthy.” So before you lock yourself into a bad buy, use this guide to learn how to buy a classic car that will be a pleasure to restore and drive on the warm roads ahead.

 

Choose Your Dream Vehicle

Classic cars come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Chances are, you already have several favorites in mind. However, before you can begin shopping around for a vehicle of your own, narrow your search by settling on a make and model or two. We recommend American classics from GM, Chrysler, and AMC for their instantly recognizable silhouettes and elegant appearance.

 

Shop for a Car and Compare Prices

You have a lot of options when it comes to finding a seller for a vehicle. The internet has opened up a whole new world for people interested in buying a classic car. Make sure you do your research and find out a good price range for your preferred vehicle. Then, compare prices from several different sellers. Make sure to take into account the condition of the vehicle before you sign an agreement. Many classic cars need some love to get them back into top shape, but you shouldn’t be paying the same price for a vehicle that needs work as you would for one that has been fully restored.



Make the Purchase

Buying a classic car involves a bit more than just handing over the cash and driving away. Make sure that the title for the vehicle is transferred to your name on the day that you make the purchase. Different states have different laws concerning the buying and selling of vehicles, so make sure that you are in accordance with the rules in the state where the vehicle is registered.
