The reviews surprised me.
link isn't working for me. But my son and i have sold 5 or 6 cars on BaT. All went well, good buyers, no issues, and sold for more than we expected. Great venue for cars like this.

If you click on the first link from google, it works: https://www.google.com/search?q=yelp+bring+a+trailer

I guess most complaints are from sellers who got rejected or buyers unhappy with the car's condition.

BAT brings top dollar for well sorted and well represented cars. The key is to be as open and honest about the car as possible and be prepared to answer and respond to any and all questions posted in the comments section. Make sure you have all documentation photographed and posted. A professional photo shoot of your car is also recommended. Make sure all defects are photographed and noted (even the smallest scratches). Unanswered questions lead bidders/ buyers to speculate and usually its for the worse. An action that gets no interaction from the seller doesn't do nearly as well. If you go this route be prepared to take the day off the day the auction closes to answer questions. Also plan to check in on and respond to the comments at least daily. BAT will try to beat you up on reserve and make it as low as possible. They want the car to sell. In some case they will actually make up the difference if the bids get close but don't meet reserve. I think your car will do very well on there but you will need to be engaged in the auction start to finish. Not sure what your asking price will be but I'd guess it would go for around 60 to 70k

Good luck

The beast is running great. Needs a good detail and I'll post updated pictures. What a delight it is to work on this car. It's amazing at all levels!

Decided to reinstall the stock diff in there so it'll be all stock except for 3.6 clutch and fly and a short shifter. Stock clutch and flywheel along with shifter will be included with the car though.

Still got a few more things to do before listing it. Such an adventure!

And a quick update to mention that I am finalizing the ad with over 100 photos, a video and a quick background/story.
I have decided to go the custom route and build my own web page so it stays alive even after the sale.
