There is no doubt that the Fayetteville Arkansas craigslist website has some of the best deals around when it comes to buying a used car for under $1000 which is still running. Perhaps you have been sitting on the sidelines for quite some time now thinking about making a used car purchase or maybe you have been actively searching and just can’t seem to find that car that you are looking for. Let’s face it, locating a car that runs for under $1000 can be somewhat of a challenge. This is of course unless you use craigslist.
For nearly 20 years now, people have been using this website to locate just about anything from housing to transportation. Personally, I have used the Fayetteville Arkansas craigslist website for just about everything you can imagine from small appliances to services. What makes this such a powerful tool is that it costs absolutely nothing to post an ad and when you are ready to buy, you can search through thousands of listings every day to find exactly what you’re looking for. While it may be tempting to look through all of these ads is much easier to take advantage of the handy search tool option located at the top of each section. Here you can enter information such as the price range of $500-$1000 or key terms such as the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet 1500 series half ton pickup truck, the Ford F1 50 super duty pickup truck, the Honda Civic, Honda accord, Toyota Corolla, Ford focus, or a number of other vehicles. All of these cars can be found for under a grand. Just to prove my point, here are a few cars that have been posted in recent days on craigslist.
Cheap cars are easy to find
1992 Ford F150 Truck $1000
A good cheap running truck for under $1000 may be easier to find than you think. Take a look at this 1992 Ford F1 50 step side truck. It does have the regular cab but one unique feature about this truck is the fact that it has the step side feature which is becoming increasingly difficult to find in this particular year. Step side simply means that the fender wells are not on the inside of the bed and they are simply located externally. This gives you more room on the inside without having to bump into fender wells. This 92 Ford has the 5.8 L V-8 engine which provides plenty of power for all of your moving needs. In addition it also comes with a nice set of wheels which really makes the truck stand out. One more feature with this truck is that it has a rear sliding window. The owner says that this truck does have quite a few number of years of age on it but it still drivable.
2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser $800
Take a look at this nice 2001 PT cruiser made by Chrysler. This car is priced to sell at $800 and is located in gentry. The owner of this car is selling the war his mother who has driven it for a number of years. It has the brown leather interior with power windows, power seats, power locks, and the automatic transmission. This cruiser has a total of 150,000 miles which makes it a great candidate for a used car. On the downside, the engine had supposedly ran hot which can pose a number of concerns. If you are interested in this car insurer that no internal engine damage has been done by overheating problem. Take your mechanic along and ensure that there are no issues. Otherwise, this may be a great deal for someone out there in the Fayetteville area.
1996 Chevy Express work van $700
Perhaps you are looking for a work van on a budget and do not have several thousand dollars to spend. This great-looking work van made by Chevrolet is a 1996 model. It has been sitting in out in this person’s yard for quite some time now and they need some work. The owner says that it has a clean title and is ready to do. This fan is white in color and would make a great work van for a carpenter, plumber, or electrician. It even has the ladder racks on the top which are worth almost as much as he is asking for the van. This would be a great deal for $500 so call the owner can see if this is an offer that he would be willing to accept.
1998 Saturn $900
Now here is a deal that you will not want to pass up in Springdale. This 1998 Saturn car comes with a four-cylinder engine and a five speed manual transmission. It has some really sharp looking chrome rims and overall is in great shape. This two-door does have over 180,000 miles on it so you will want to check it out closely to ensure that it is something that you would be willing to take on. These cars have been known to run well over 200,000 miles so you may get a few years of use out of it for only a couple hundred bucks.
Buying a car from a dealer on Craigslist
Iwillt is also possible to pick up a great deal on a dealer car on craigslist. This is something that you will want to specify whenever you do a search for a car. You are able to choose whether you are looking for a car for sale by owner or one for sale by dealer. One thing I like to do is choose the option for both private seller and dealer because this will give you maximum number of search results and there are some really great deals out there that can be found on craigslist from a dealer. They often list some other lower end cars that attract buyers that cannot afford to pay a large amount for a car. This is something that you’ll want to consider when shopping for used car.there are also other websites such as auto trader that make it easy to find cars by searching the database for listings. These websites are by subscription and pay only so you will not find nearly as many vehicles for sale.
