#1 Selling a classic car on French website?

Post by ysmalkie » Mon May 20, 2019 8:31 pm

Apologies, as this is not strictly Jaguar related...

Hello to all French friends here...

I have a quick question - I need to sell a Peugeot 504 cabrio I have, and I thought France might be the best country to sell it in. The car is unfortunately incomplete, but has a good body.

Can you recommend a classic car French website?

The best site is, paradoxically’ probably NOT a Classic Car site at all but LeBonCoin which is a most improbably successful French version of GumTree and Craig’s List rolled into one rather hick and dead simple web-site which has become the Go-To ressource for flogging anything and everything in France.

Definitely try this first.

When I was actively looking couple of year ago, these two were more dedicated:
www.lesanciennes.com
www.lva-auto.fr
Good luck,

That's the whole point.

LBC is not dedicated, BUT it is crawled over by car enthusiasts who ALSO look for fire-wood, pond filters, prams, and computer lessons.

By all means do the specialist sites, but LBC is a must, albeit a surprising one.
