Selling your classic car? It's FREE to list your car on Honest John Classics | No thanks

What's the best way to sell a classic car without doing a private sale?

My friend has a GTM Libra to sell. It has the 24v 2.5-litre engine. Could you advise on the best places to sell it? She would obviously prefer to avoid a private sale involving strangers calling round to test drive it.

In which case then it'll be either sending it to auction or placing it with a dealer. While there's less hassle, the price she gets will also likely be not as high and will have costs associated with it. That could be commission, various charges, storage etc.
