Frequently Asked Questions

General questions about Classic Trader

What is Classic Trader?

  • Classic Trader is the international marketplace for classic cars. The offer of Classic Trader allows private and commercial sellers to showcase classic cars of any kind in a specialized market environment. Potential buyers, however, have the opportunity to have a much more real product experience. An almost unlimited number of large, high-resolution images and videos are supplemented by detailed technical information. The placement of information and documents on the history, condition and maintenance intervals keeps sellers from unintentional contact with uninformed buyers.
    The gradual introduction of complementary services will support both buyers and sellers increasingly.

What can I do here?

  • As a seller, you can offer your classic car or future classic for sale in a specialized market environment.
  • As potential buyer you can find your dream classic easily and quickly or simply dream just a little while browsing car advertisements.
  • As a user without direct interest in buying, you can surf freely on Classic Trader and browse car listings with high-resolution images, exact technical data and other background information, such as magazine articles.
