eBay Challenge: Nicest Cars For Less Than $20,000

Illustration for article titled eBay Challenge: Nicest Cars For Less Than $20,000

Welcome, welcome, one and all, to the only challenge that urges you to think outside the box and find the best deals online, for the greater good. Your task for today is to find the nicest cars on eBay for under a $20,000 budget. Is this just vague enough to work?


Here are the rules:

  • One entry per post.
  • Selections aren’t limited to simply ‘cars’ (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $20,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn’t go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the nicest car for less than $20,000.

Start here and find a car that has no issues with taking a compliment.

I’ll arrange the best selections afterwards and it’s possible your answer may be used on a new show we’re working on at Jalopnik.


Tavarish is the founder of APiDA Online and writes and makes videos about buying and selling cool cars on the internet. He owns the world’s cheapest Mercedes S-Class, a graffiti-bombed Lexus, and he’s the only Jalopnik author that has never driven a Miata. He also has a real name that he didn’t feel was journalist-y enough so he used a pen name and this was the best he could do.

You can also follow him on Twitter and Facebook. He won’t mind.

Nicest? Gotta be a Roller:…

$15k BIY and a desert car with no sunburn. Might not be the fastest, or most technologically advanced, but nothing screams affluence more than a Rolls Royce hood ornament. Plus aftermarket infotainment system ;)
