• Too much car for a single frame:

    Plymouth Volaries – $800

    • This one looks like a decent project:
      1964 Austin Healey sprite – $3500 (Fieldbrook,Ca)

    • Or, well, these:
      2 Yamaha GAS G1 golf carts – $750 (Dry Ridge, KY)

      And back to work.

    • Yes but that's MB mold, you cant just get that anywhere! Still – that's a whole lot of coin for something parked for 10-12 years even if it's MB gold (er, mold). Love this – "and no cracks or major ware on the interior. One crack in dash pad" – Is it one, or none…?

  • 1978 Dodge Aspen in Spokane, WA for $425. Ran when parked 16 years ago.

    1978 Dodge Aspen. $425.00. She ran great when parked in 2000, should be an easy project car. Would also make a great parts car. 98K original. 4 door, Auto. Also is equipped with a hand brake. I did hook a battery to it and it did turn over, so I am guessing the motor is fine.

    The hand bakes seals it for me…

    • My favorite part of this ad is the notion that he would consider this car's status as an "easy project" as a positive. A better project would be teaching your labradoodle to use the toilet or starting your own gang of roving sophists. Maybe I'm missing the mopar gene, though.

  • Vince, the later Benz in your original ad is not a 190D. Seller seems confused about what he has. That's a W124 sedan, which means if it's truly a 1987 diesel, then it's a 300D which was a one-year-only configuration for North America, and kinda desirable. Maybe a great deal for $800 if it doesn't need much except resuscitation.

    • Edit: yes, I can see the OM603 turbo diesel in a few of the tiny, grainy craigslist ads, so this is a 1987 300D. The later W124 diesels had naturally aspirated inline fives and sixes. This is a one year only deal: turbo six.

  • The best hope for this windowless wonder of a Series 1 XJ is life as a LeMons Limo. The seller doesn't know what year this Jaguar is,but he's quite confident that its a great fixer upper! Appears to be a Series 1 XJ, so it can't be newer than a '73; but he's not going to provide and gallderned smog cert for it! He says it ran when parked, but apparently no one noticed that its a GM small block.

  • Ever since this super sweet Longroof Benz slipped through my fingers almost three years ago, I've been hoping to find another. Here's the starter kit. $800 for a '79 300 TD Wagon,awaiting the installation of that LS1 sitting in the corner of your garage, along with some other 'ran when parked' diesel misfits, all priced at $800 for ease of keeping track of the seller's inventory pricing.

  • While this one might make a better restoration candidate, and this one might be a great one to fix and resell, I'm going to go with this 1962 Chrysler Imperial on the grounds that the seller says that it ran when parked… 41 years ago.

  • I've worked on a Triumph TR3 that was parked for 39 years. Poured a little oil into the chamber, cracked it loose with a big breaker bar, replaced the points and the rest of the usual ignition stuff, squirt of starter fluid and it was running. Smoking a bit, but running. Those old tractor motors were indestructible. Then checked the rest of the drive train by driving in the shop, pulling away from a dead stop in 4th gear. Yeah it would have been better off with a rebuild, but it was pretty impressive just how well it was running after all that time

    • That's funny, I'm fixing up tr3 that I parked in 1986 and that's my experience too.

      The rear axle on the other hand is a nightmare

  • There are many options in the Twin Cities on Craigslist, and these three are my favorites:

    Nice looking Jag for $600 but the car is obviously located in Australia.

    Ran when Parked fifty one years ago.

    And the completely believable in the past 17 years I just haven't had time to start the car.

    • Hmmm. According to the seller of the Camaro, it has an 5 speed "hydraulic" transmission. Must have been a one year only option….

  • These two are really just beyond me:

    1988 Ford F-150 vermont.craigslist.org/grd/5611642370.html

    A 194??? John Deerte vermont.craigslist.org/pts/5616773230.html

  • A nice 2005 Town and Country for $300. "didn't not have title". So.. has title?


  • Searched Denver CL – oh the possibilities! 73 MG, 81 VW Diesel PU, 57 Ford F100, 85 Merkur xr4ti, 67 Firebird, 71 Camaro, 59 Bug Eye Sprite, 55 Mercury Woodie Wagon, aother MB 300 turbo D sedan, and my fav – 67 Toronado! denver.craigslist.org/cto/5640312506.html Bargains all, I'm sure.
