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.
Amazing cars, very friendly staff! A must see!
I recently dropped off my 1989 Jeep Wrangler with Chris. Since the time we first spoke on the phone I knew he was a stand up guy. He talked me into bringing the Jeep into the showroom and posting it for sale as I'm a busy man and I don't have time for answering the same questions over and over again on one of these marketplace sites. Chris and I agreed on a fair price for it and I signed it up. His team took some great pictures of my ole Jeep and posted them om their website. Now I guess we wait and see what happens.... thanks for your help Chris.
I recently purchased a 1969 Corvette from Gateway Classic Cars and I am really pleased with my purchase. At the time I went to drive it home to Oklahoma and I had a small problem and after a call to Sal Akbani it was taken care of promptly. I would recommend to anyone I know who is looking to purchase a classic car to check out your choices first as you have a nice collection to choose from. I was treated fairly and am quite pleased with your prices and with the prompt way my problem was resolved.
Hi Gateway, I received the title and everything is fine, car is registered and turned out to be better than expected. I was a bit apprehensive about buying without seeing the car in person or test driving, but was not disappointed at all, I'm very pleased.
The family had a blast there and enjoyed it with all the vehicles and food from the areas. We had 2 3 year olds and really loved it there. Thank you will be back in time lol maybe looking at a wedding venue. Great time and awesome vehicles.
purchased a 1966 Chevy Impala SS Convertible from KEVIN. He is an awesome salesman he was on point throughout my purchase of my vehicle. He made my car buying experience easy and smooth. I recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a vehicle. He is very knowledgeable, helpful and went out of his way to help you even after hours. Kevin made it happen he had my car delivered from Orlando Florida to Blythe California it was a smooth transition. Keep doing your thang Kevin you Da Man!!
...I wanted to express my gratitude to you for all you have done. You truly made my lifelong dream of owning one of these cars, possible. We'll be watching the mail for all additional items the previous owners had included with this sale. Again thank you for everything.
Chrome and coffee event was honestly much better than I was expecting. I’m not huge into classics but they have some great pieces to show and Sell! For really reasonable prices! Would check out their car events if you’re ever in the area! :)
So friendly here and open to the public! Such beautiful cars for sale. The team was very friendly and let us take a look around. There are descriptions for each vehicle along with pricing. Staff was available to answer questions. Tons of free posters were also available as souvenirs! Great place to visit while in Milwaukee. Highly recommend

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,
I am a car collector and use their service frequently to both buy and sell cars. They are a great team to work with.
I am such a connoisseur of the Lincoln Continental Mark III that upon seeing stock #2911 on Gateway Classic's website, I consummated a purchase via wire transfer of funds the very next day (without even waiting for a test drive). I booked a one-way flight there three days later, and admired the car for about 45 minutes in person while Charley prepared my paperwork, and the car, for the long drive from East St. Louis back to Washington, DC., my faith and trust in a car that performed even better than it looks may have surprised some, but not me. Thanks Guys on my being so blessed...
I just wanted to say thanks for all you have done, you were very helpful, and your dedication to your customers shows. Keep up the good work.
I received your check this afternoon and just want to say, Thank You for your help. In this time of a very hot classic car market and a lot of unscrupulous classic car dealers it is very refreshing and reassuring to deal with people like you and your fine company, Gateway Classic Cars. I am not a dealer nor a collector. I bought this Cadillac because I always wanted a 60's Cadillac Convertible. I am going to drive it and have fun with it. It was a pleasure doing business with your Company. If I ever get in the market for another classic car I will not hesitate for a minute to do business with you.
Bought a car, sold a car, and used them for storage. All 3 experiences with Gateway were awesome. Highly recommend using these guys! - Denver
I work as a car shipper all over the US and internationally. We have worked with Gateway Classic Cars for years and Kevin is by far one of the most trustworthy gentlemen in sales I have ever worked with. He cares for his clients like family and will surely take care of you honestly in any and every transaction! Every client I have spoke with that have interacted with him consider him one of the nicest people they have ever done business with.
Hey Brad, just wanted to pass along to you guys the car was all it said it was in the video. It ran great on the return trip to Alabama. Turned a few heads.
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!!!
I recently purchased a 1995 Chevy Station Wagon (mild custom) from Gateway Classic Cars in Charlotte, NC. I found the car to be correctly represented and everything they said it to be. What impressed me even more than the initial sale was the willingness of your staff to help me after the sale. The entire staff was eager to go the extra mile! If success is based on willingness and helpfulness they should do a bang-up business in Charlotte!
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!
Amazing selection of classics for viewing. I was attending a BNI meeting but took some time to look around. Highly recommend for any car enthusiasts as well as casual admirers
My thanks to Sal and the entire Gateway team for their work in locating, evaluating, completing a transaction and arranging the delivery of my 1954 Corvette. At every step in the process they were informative, responsive and consistently honest and objective in representing the car. Follow up after the sale for delivery and documentation was outstanding. This is a great organization, both in Fairmont City and Charlotte.
Great cars very nice people we will be back!
...it is nice doing business with someone that is willing to give you the answers to make a major investment. Your staff:charlie and donna were great. I am very satisfied with my purchase and the follow up your people give. The best to you and your co.
I would like to express my experience in buying my first car from Sal at Gateway. I bought a Nice ElCamino and the very evening that I brought it home I had the trans. pump go out and it was several months before I could get it repaired, but Sal was good to his word he said he would work with me and when it was done He was there for me.
Great people good prices
These guys are great. Very friendly staff. Huge selection of vehicles. Staff was very knowledgeable about there inventory. Definitely worth it.
Gateway Classic Cars is always a fun trip. They have really cool old muscle cars and trucks as well as some race cars.-STL
I advertised my car for 7 months through the newspapers and the Internet. Finally, I was tired of all the real and cyber tire kickers that wanted my car but could not afford my 1999 Porsche Boxster. These guys sold my car to a buyer in Ballwin not too far from where I live. I will never sell my cars through newspaper again.
