Classic Austin Healey Sprite
The Austin Healey is part of a related group of makes ( similar body styles ) - austin healey, 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!
Thanks to the Chicago team for a great car buying experience! Nic was super helpful with answering all my questions and made the buying process so easy! Angel was very pleasant and provided helpful resources after the sale! I drove away in my dream car!!!

Smooth transaction and great communication throughout. Scott made the whole process very easy. Gateway has a great network of shipping contacts too, and provided several qoutes to pick from.
I would like to take a moment of your collective time to share with the all of you an unbelievable experience that your Business Development Manager in Houston, Texas created from my 5 year old Grandson, Grayson Smith and myself on August 10 while visiting your place of business.
Earlier in the day, my wife, daughter and two other grandsons (2 and 3 weeks) headed out for breakfast to celebrate Grayson’s 5th birthday. As a warmup present he received from my wife, Lee and myself, subscriptions and samples to Streetrodder and Classic Truck magazines. With that he asked, “Pop can we go look at some hotrods somewhere today?” Coincidentally I had seen your cars and coffee event on the local street calendar, made a call to your Houston office and inquired about coming out for a look. We were welcomed to come out.
Upon our arrival, Mr. James Stanley greeted us and welcomed Grayson and myself to take our time and look around. James asked Grayson about his interest and likes in hotrods and Grayson responded that he was there to look for a birthday outing. Mr. Stanley took it upon himself to essentially construct a “birthday bag” for Grayson full of classic car magazines, keychains, suckers, flashlights and decals. Needless to say Grayson and I both were thrilled, so much so, we borrowed a space in the middle of your showroom, sat down and went through each piece together. I have to tell you the magazines are most likely his favorites. Over the next 2 hours or so, we moved quickly from one car to the next and often back to a car visited earlier. Grayson knows his cars and was spot on with most until we got to the Volkswagens, about which he commented “Pop what is that?”. Clearly he was having fun.
We wound down the visit with the conclusion that Grayson should have a Dodge Charger for college and red would be his color choice.
Please understand we are not new to this. Today Grayson tinkers with me on my 34 Ford and now on my 52 Chieftain. I decided when he was born that he should have the opportunity to understand a bygone era and participate in the same if so inclined.
The amount of attention bestowed on us by Mr. Stanley and the greetings from others in your Houston operation is beyond welcoming and impressive. You have a tremendous individual in Mr. Stanley as part of your organization and I wanted to make sure that I both thank him and you all are made aware of his personable efforts.
As mentioned, I have a couple of classics but my next purchase and/or sale consultation will be through your organization. Based on our recent experience with Gateway there would be no reason to do otherwise.
My sincerest thanks to Mr. Stanley for making Grayson’s 5th birthday a hit. We read those magazines together constantly and talk about them when visiting by phone.
Very best regards,
Cool place lots of classic cars to checkout friendly staff!
Very clean facility. All the cars were laid out nicely so it was easy to look at them all over. If you're looking for a classic car that's the place to find it.
Greg, Just a note to say thank you for the professionalism in the way you run the business and for the patience in dealing with overseas buyers. Things take a bit longer when there are more people involved than the seller and buyer I'm finding out, yourself and Brendan were courteous and polite and easy to deal with and I would definitely recommend you guys to anyone.
Awesome place-indeed!!! Go check 'em out
A great squad to work with - the relationship doesn’t end after the sale - Cody & team go above and beyond to take care of their customers. Glad i came across these guys!!!
Very nice establishment nice people just a whole great experience Hopefully buying my first car from there this week I was very impressed and can’t wait to do the meet and greet on the last Saturday of every month looking forward to it
Beautiful classic cars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tell them Neal Jr. sent you! ????????
The staff was very nice and helpful and knowledgeable
Kathy is a phenomenal person! she was Very helpful with the transaction of my new Shay Model A maybe in the near future I will come back and also recommend Gateway Classics of PHILLY!!!
If you're looking for the perfect vintage BMW, stop in the Atlanta showroom and ask for Brent V.! He's knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to make your dreams come true. I love my 1988 BMW e28 - thanks Brent!
I found my dream car on your WEB site. A 67 Mustang Fastback, Stock #1938. My Thanks to Sal and everyone at Gateway. A friendly group of people and extremely easy to deal with. Sal worked closely with me and was very candid concerning the physical condition of the vehicle. The car was delivered to my residence in Hamilton, Va and has been a real pleasure to own.
Great selling experience. Experienced sales professionals who are very friendly and welcoming. They always have some amazing cars for sale.
No complaints at all I came in knowing exactly what car I wanted and they got me into it. The buying process was smooth and easy. Got a great running and good looking car couldn't be happier!!
Thanks for selling our 2002 T Bird and in such a short time. Great pictures and listing on your website. Joe and the staff involved are are the best! Thanks much to all of you.
Just wanted to let you know I received my 2002 Camaro SS 35th Anniversary last Sunday. It is AWESOME!!! I want to thank you and all of the Gateway gang for working with me through the process, which I found to be incredibly easy. Naturally I had some reservations about buying the car sight-unseen other than via pix, even though it had such low miles. But my reservations were put at ease when I backed it off the transport truck - WOW!!! You might still be able to 'hear' me smiling from ear to ear! Thanks again for all your help!
I would like to take this opportunity to commend Gateway Classic Cars on the professional manner in which my car was sold. It sold within the length of the contract. Your staff was professional and courteous. I highly recommend Gateway Classic Cars!
These guys are the best. Once I finally made the decision to sell my car, there was no question who I would trust that to. Thanks for a great job!
The whole team there was awesome, so effortless I almost thought this whole thing was fake! Put my 67’ mustang on consignment there and within 90 days they got me what I wanted! Super easy, and that was extremely beneficial since I own multiple small businesses. Thank y’all again!
...I'm having fun with this car. Thank you for the experience allowing me to come up and get it. Everyone who sees this car turns their heads. It's absolutely awesome...Every car has it's issues and that's just the way getting a classic 36 years old is. You were right and honest the whole time. A buyer has to weight the want vs. the output to decide and buy. I got what I wanted that was definitely not available anywhere in this area (El Paso Desert Southwest Area).
Very Professional team. Elizabeth was very helpful to get me all info I needed to import a car.
This place was excellent. Like a grown up toys r us. They have a LARGE inventory of classics as well as a few newer customs. Staff was very friendly and even hooked my son up with a couple free car posters for his dorm room. If you weren't looking for it you'd never find this place. They're in the back of an industrial park. Just use your GPS. Well worth the trip if you're in the market for a classic or just wanna look around as it's like a museum for classic cars.
Harry was the best no pressure what a nice guy I would recommend them to anyone looking for a classic car Thanks again Harry.
We were trying to trade in our 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII. The dealers were offering us very little while raising the price of their new Navigator. We sold our Mark VIII through Gateway and received nearly twice the amount dealers were willing to pay us and we negotiated a better price on the new SUV.
I have sold 4 cars here and they are very easy to work with and I never had an issue. Scott, Devin, Jesse are amazing to work with and honest. If you go in with a reasonable figure on a desirable car, it will sell fast. They also offer a detailing service for cars being sold and they detail guy is great. On top of that they host a car show every month which is nice to check out the inventory of cars they have along with other peoples rides.
I have been very satisfied for that car, Mercury Marquis. Last week we had a Hot Wheels Show here in Finland and we got the 1st prize in Classic Car serie. The car is GREAT!!!! The car is 100% original like Sal said! I dont used an appraiser or inspector because I had a lot of pictures about this car and that was enough for me. The service was great. Everything was like we were agreed. Now I'll wait for the next car from Gateway Classic Car. I want something special and Sal is going to find it? Yes, I can say that everything was better than welldone! In my opinion You can trust for Gateway Classic Car Company!!!
Fabulous selection of vintage autos. Josh Gordon has incredible knowledge of nearly everything in stock
