Looking for tips and opinions

Alright so heres the deal, Im trying to sell my 3.8 mustang bc I need to get a work truck. Does anyone know of any good free places to post? The sooner its gone the better. I currently have the price set at 5k obo in hopes of a minimum sale of $4200. You can find my thread (same thing posted on several forums) in the for sale area on this site. Any helpfull tips or opinions would be greatly appreciated to make this thing sell!

Re: Looking for tips and opinions

Hmm... I'm really not too sure. If your looking for good internet outlets you should def. try posting the link in your sig in all of the forums you visit. If you have a myspace or facebook make a bulletin or your status regarding your car. Ebay charges minimal fee's and also you look into a local News on Wheels or some kind of ad magazine local to you? maybe a Common Cents. Try the classifieds in the news paper. I'm not too sure but These probably won't cost you much if any.


Good Luck.


P.S. you should also post pictures on the websites

Craigslist worked well for me selling my 81....only took about a week or so....and it was free.

Re: Looking for tips and opinions

thanks guys, I have pictures in the other ones, but didnt seem to get nearly as many hits here and no responses so I havent bothered with pictures yet. I was hesitant to post on craigslist bc the last few cars I put up didnt get my any responses until about 2 months after it was gone lol. I currently have it posted on the following: Ford Mustang | Mustang Forums for Ford Mustang Enthusiasts Home Cars For Sale, Used Cars For Sale, New Cars For Sale, Carsforsale.com! (free posting) and MySpace | A Place for Friends as bullits. My stepdads on Facebook otherwise it would be there too (he wants me to "think about it" for two weeks before selling it. But Ive been offered a very good job with only one requirement, I bring my own truck to work as a second crew for him. everything including maintenance would be covered. Im not arguing lol. I miss my silverado anyways.

Re: Looking for tips and opinions

Sale pending at $4200 even, My girlfriends Army buddy is looking to buy it. Since hes in the military active duty (going to Iraq) I offered to hold it for him if he pays for it and use my own income to fix it up and make sure its in top notch shape for when he returns. Hopefully he takes it, he told me hed get back to me today (friday) as to weather hell take it or not.

If he doesn't buy it you might try Autotrader. Its $30 for an ad but I have bought and sold several cars through them with good luck.
