On occassion a customers ask me if I know anyone interested in buying their classic car. If I can't think of anyone immediately, I agree to post their classified ad on this page. When there is a serious inquiry, I put the seller in direct contact with the potential buyer to negotiate a final offer.

I bought this classic 1989 white Mercedes 560SL from the original owner a year ago. Everything is 100% original .. paint, upholstery, carpeting, all mechanical parts, etc.
This car is in mint condition. It looks like it just came off the factory assembly line. No scratches. No accidents. It runs perfectly and has always been garaged.
I'm asking $40,000. Car is at my Los Angeles auto upholstery shop.

This fully-restored and stunning Beige and Tan Series I roadster is the best version of the iconic E-type line. According to the built records, this jaguar was one of the last Series 1 ever made.
Mary O'Rourke of the Jaguar Heritage Trust Archive states: "It was in a run of approximately 20 vehicles all of which were sent to Jaguar Cars New York."
This original 67K miles car has all matching number with accompanying JDHT certificate. She has been meticulously restored from the ground up that started two years ago in Los Angeles, CA. All the original parts have been removed, polished and painted then refitted on the car. Even the original Chenney hose clamps remain. The car runs and drive perfectly and stays cool with a original restored radiator rebuilt by Kirby Radiators in Fort Worth, TX.
No expense was spared making sure the car was correct and ready to take on the show circuit. Paint and Body has been fit and finished to its original stunning factory color of Beige with a new London tan interior. This color combination is not only attractive but also a very limited and rare color scheme for a Series 1. Original in every way including her original tools (almost impossible to find), original jack, and original manuals. (New) Properly fitted original styled Dunlop Rims on 185 pirelli proper show tires. Dispatched: 12 July 1967 to CALIFORNIA, she is as good as the day she left the showroom floor.
In her current configuration she has covered head lights, all gauges cleaned and working, all lights and signals blinking, and a new convertible top. The Independent Rear suspension (IRS) has been removed, taken apart, powder coated and refitted with new proper original matching shocks. She has a perfect stance and rides like a brand new jaguar XKE. All engine parts have been polished to a mirror like shine and under the bonnet, she looks better than it would have new. The brightwork on the car has been re-plated chrome and refitted. The factory style Blaupunkt radio works and will impress any judge. New turn down pipes, exhaust pipes and resonators sound amazing. The 4.2 litre engine purrs!
Serious inquires. Price is negotiable. Car is in Los Angeles, CA.
