Copart Cadillacs
« on: October 19, 2014, 07:28:39 PM »
Guys,
 Log on to the Copart site. Select Classics. Then filter Cadillac. There's a 70 conv. with 69 tail lites, a 70 CDV burn. I'll bet that was a REAL nice car. Hate to see it. Maybe one of you can save one of the cars. Almost forgot... a 70 Eldo with sun roof!

The Convertible must have sold, but the 'Burn is a mess.

Bruce,
 They're calling it a 69 Fleetwood. Lot # 31235774. Still there.
George,
 Not sure where any of these cars are. It says in the listings. That's a nice gesture if you can help somebody.

Found it.   Could it be a '69 with '70 Front Fenders?

that red 70 was a really nice car, door guards and what looked to be a mint interior, front fenders do not even appear to have been rusted, right here in li,ny my favorite year and color, what a loss

So how does copart work, you bid on and possibly win a car? Then what? You have to make arrangements to have it towed? Some of those cars have 4 flat tires. That would be a royal PITA.
Regards,

Most of coparts cars would require a tow since they are all insurance claim right offs.
When a Doctor "saves a Life" it does not necessarily mean that that life will ever be the same as it was, but he still saved it. My 46 may not be as it was but it is still alive.

The Copart main site gives all the details on bidding. When you get a bidder # you're ready to go. All cars have to be picked up in 7 days. They bring them out to the parking lot with a big fork lift. Many of the cars do run & drive. Most don't have current license. I think there's some good deals to be had.

If you do bid and buy something from them,prepare to get taken to the cleaners on the extra charges?,been there and done that,didnt like it at all!.Used to buy a lot of salvage from them at one time,got fed up with their attitude towards the customers,a lot of shady stuff happens there,a lot of the cars are "doctored up" by some sellers,If it looks to good to be true,it propably is.Havent bought from them in 5 years,dont miss it a bit!.While they have some neat stuff,but just be ready when it goes south.
