Cobra For Sale
In an effort to compete with the highly popular Corvette, the AC Cobra was designed by British company, AC Cars and was equipped with a Ford V8 Engine. In cooperation with famed driver and automotive designer, Carroll Shelby, the 2-seater roadster was an immediate success. True vintage Cobras are highly prized amongst car collectors and many replica kits, in homage, can also be found in our inventory.
Sell My Austin ?
I just wanted to thank Gateway Classic Cars for your work on selling our 1977 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.
I realized some of the benefits of putting it on consignment with Gateway when we first came to meet with you and saw your showroom and met the staff. However, not until after we consigned the automobile with you and not only did you help us in what it needed to make it more appealing to that limited market of who would be looking at buying an older Rolls, but you really were great in taking care of us through out the 'process' did I realize ALL of the benefits of having it in Gateway's hands.
With the economy what it is today, and the thought of trying to sell something like this on our own, well, I wouldn't want to think about what could have happened with people that are less than honorable looking to take advantage of others that maybe too trusting or just naive to what could happen in going thru the process. We didn't have to worry about if we could trust the person interested in buying it, especially if it would have limited us to the market right here in our area only.
And even then, I would have had to trust that they could drive an automobile that was right side drive without doing any damage during the 'interested' stage. But, then to think about if we had to trust someone thousands of miles away that would be offering to buy it and trying to make the arrangements on transporting it to them and hoping that their payment for the automobile was good.
Again, in today's world, unfortunately, there are less than scrupulous people that would have taken full advantage of us and in consigning the automobile with Gateway, we never had to worry about any of the obvious things that could possibly happen but those things alot of people may not realize could take place.
So, again, I want to thank you for taking not only the time and patience to work with us on selling what I termed 'the old girl'..but making it a process that was very trusting and enjoyable.
We know that in today's market and having a very specialized item, it was not going to be an easy or fast sale. However, I would recommend that anyone thinking about consigning their automobile instead of selling it on their own, contact Gateway Classic Cars.
Thanks Gateway and Staff! You all were fantastic!
I want to take a moment and thank you, Charlie and your entire staff for our recent classic car purchase (1968 Ford Mustang). Everyone was wonderful to work with and always made us feel like their most important customer. This was the first time I have ever taken a chance and buy something this valuable sight unseen. I can't articulate the words, but there is just something about Charlie I trusted, and decided to take a chance. He didn't disappoint me and lived up to the instinct I had, the 1968 Mustang has been a great addition to the family. We entered it in a local car show and received a 2nd place trophy. With a little TLC and work I am sure that it can become a 1st place.
I flew in to Houston from Washington state to see my car at gateway after the inspection was completed. I met both Jeff and Dominic who run sales there. They made the purchase go so smoothly for me! My 1930 A sedan was even more than I expected from the written inspection. Jeff also helped me with getting a carrier for my car back to Gig Harbor, WA. While walking their showroom, an feeling like a kid in a candy store, they had all my paper work ready for my signing. My experience with them and Gateway was like meeting your favorite relative that you like! Thank you both and Gateway Houston. Gary Pimentel
We have received the car which we absolutely love and have been enjoying in the great week of weather we are having. Your description of it was completely accurate, it is in great shape and I know we will get many years of pleasure from it. Thank you for your assistance in making this acquisition possible and for being such an honest broker re the transaction, it gave me great confidence in acquiring a vehicle I did not get to see before it turned up almost on our doorstep and was exactly as described and anticipated.
