Close your eyes for a moment and picture that car that was your first “dream car”. Was it a classic American car like a Corvette or Mustang? Maybe it was a European car like an Alfa Romeo or a BMW? No matter what vehicle you are envisioning, it is likely no longer in production or outside of your budget. Never mind, you don’t have to give up the dream when you have unlimited access to the hundreds of thousands of salvage cars for sale.

You may think you don’t have what it takes to do a restoration. You can make your dream car something much more than a fantasy. It all starts with a look through the many different salvage cars for sale. The options available change all the time, and you can use public auctions, junk yards, and modern websites to peruse the offerings. A dealer auction website is where you are likely to find your car among the salvage cars for sale.


What Are Dealer Auction Sites?

Dealer auction sites are just what they sound like – websites where a licensed dealer makes it possible for anyone in the public to both see and bid on the many vehicles coming up for sale.

In the past, and currently, a dealer license is required if you wish to bid in a dealer auction.

Auction sites enable you to create an account, put in your maximum bid, and your agents handle the rest.

A dealer auction is unique from public auctions or government auctions. The inventory comes from a wide array of places. Repossessions, accidents, turned-in leases, early trade-ins, and many other points of origin will fill out an auction.

There will also be salvage cars for sale, and before you say you are not dreaming of a wreck, keep in mind that a salvage title can be assigned for nothing more than cosmetic damage that will cost a lot to repair.

Regardless of the overall condition of salvage cars for sale, they offer a direct route to your dream car.

Simply create a search at your dealer auction site, and check in regularly to see if your car shows up as salvage or even a low-priced auction. If you can acquire your car at the lowest possible, bargain-basement price, you have a lot of breathing room to invest in repairs.


Even more appealing is the fact that you can also purchase other salvage cars in the same make and model, using the best bits and pieces from each to put together your dream car, making it entirely your own. Even if you enlist the support of professional mechanics and body experts, your final price tag is going to be surprisingly low. So, if you are looking for the ultimate project car, your best place to begin searching is an online salvage car sale.
