Part 2 of 3 – Tips Before Purchasing a Classic Car
Continuing from last week, here are some more important tips to consider before purchasing a classic car.
Check the Mileage
Mileage is important when you buy any used car. In any given case, lower mileage means the car is of better value than a car in similar condition with more miles on it. Lower mileage means that the vehicle has less wear and tear. Extremely low mileage is less likely with older cars, but it’s still something to look out for. That being stated, don’t let this be the only thing you consider. A classic car in great condition is still valuable, even if it has a lot of miles on it. It’s simply something you should look at and think about.
Compare and Contrast
If you find something for sale that you really like, compare it to similar options online. In the digital age, it’s fairly easy to do price comparisons from home. Simply compare make, model, and year to other options for sale around the web. You should consider the condition of those vehicles, as they may appear cheaper if they’re damaged or worn. Also do some in-person comparison in your area, and compare options for similar brands and years. It doesn’t hurt to shop around, and it will give you an idea of pricing in your city. Do your homework and ask questions.
