What to Look for in a Classic Car
Restoring a classic car is a fun project, but you need to know what you are doing. Follow this guide to make sure you are not wasting a ton of cash on that Craigslist bargain.
If you see rust, walk away. A spot on a panel is not a big deal, but if it has eaten through the trunk or the floor, you are looking at a serious money pit.
A classic car you purchase for investment purposes should have matching engine, transmission, and rear axles that all match with the car's VIN. The engine will have the last six digits of the VIN stamped on it, so it is easy to find. The transmission and rear end are stamped with date codes. You will have to look up to see if the dates match. If they do not, it is not a big deal, but do not pay top dollar.
Do not let considerable mileage turn you away from a car, just be willing to pay less for it. If the car is well-maintained, high mileage is not a big deal. For novices, stick with low-mileage cars, but if you know what you are doing, do not be afraid of a car just because of what it reads on the speedometer.
Buy What You Like
Don't buy a car simply for investment purposes. Buy what you like. If you do not want to drive the car, do not waste your money. Cars are not great investments, and you will likely lose money. Stick with something you love.
