Keep looking on Ebay, and here on Team Chevelle. I like Craigslist too because you can look for a car in Arizona or California with little or no rust.
Maybe racingjunk.com?
Good luck and let us know what you find!

Here is a list of the sites I used when we were looking for a Chevelle. We also had ads on some of them when we had our 57 Chevy for sale.

I bought my Chevelle off ebay but it was also for sale on hotrodhotline.

I found mine on Autotrader, but I sold my '55 on Racingjunk.com. Sometimes you can find some nice cars on racingjunk.com that arent all out race cars. Im also a big fan of craigslist and ebay, but I mostly use ebay to see what people are paying for these cars, not for buying. I find that ebay is full of liars and misrepresented cars, mostly people just looking to makea quick buck on the unsuspecting or less than knowledgeable buyer.

This is an awesome search tool, it catches all CL locations, all ebay, and all Autotrader.

www.searchtempest.com


You have to set a few criteria but it works.:thumbsup:

FWIW, I had more than one realy bad experience on sleeze-bay, so I cannot recommend that as a good source to you. I like racingjunk.com a lot better, and it's where I found my Chevelle too. There's just waaay too many rip-off artists and con men on sleeze-bay for my taste. That's JMO sure, but I'm sure not alone in that opinion. Good luck, and do NOT buy any car nor send anyone any $$ whatsoever based purely on their description of the car, and their pictures. I uncovered even used car dealers on sleeze-bay doctoring photos of the cars they advertise there.

To embellish a little on what Billy said - check prospective cars out thoroughly - IN PERSON if at all possible. Post 'em up here and we'll pick 'em over. :D If you're not that familiar with older cars and know people who are - get them to help you check the car out.

DON'T buy the first shiny car that catches your eye - at least until you've gone over it with a fine-toothed comb. Be patient and the right one will come along. :thumbsup:
