The Old Oregon Motor Company
Let's face it...when the time comes to sell your classic car, simply converting it into cash isn't easy. In fact, it's time consuming, frustrating, and, when employing a major auction house that can charge over 20% of the proceeds, expensive. Therefor, expert consultation along with reasonable service charges are essential. The Old Oregon Motor Co. provides a completely transparent process for transferring your prized vehicle on to another enthusiast who will care for it as you have.
"Retailing your car is an exercise in finding just the right person to buy it", says proprietor Bill Penny. "If you're lucky, that person will be just across town...but all too often they will be on the other end of the country or the other side of the world". Bill has 37 years experience in selling collectable autos to all 50 states and at least 20 foreign countries. "For instance, overseas buyers refuse to wire funds across the ocean to private parties. They will only do business with licensed and bonded dealers", says Penny.
The Old Oregon Motor Co. charges an initial fee of $200 to pay for advertising and travel expenses. We incur these expenses almost immediately upon the consignment of your vehicle, making the fee a necessity. You will then retain possession of your car until it sells and usually it will sell sight-unseen, making showings to prospective buyers unnecessary.
We then earn a commission upon selling your car based on the schedule listed below. We use the term earn rather than charge because we simply believe that our experience will allow us to sell your car for more than what you may achieve on your own. Therefor, you may actually be able to net more money for your classic car by employing us at The Old Oregon Motor Company!
Up to $25,000 OMC earns 10%.
From $25,001 to $30,000 OMC earns $2500.

From $50,001 to $65,000 OMC earns $4000.

For cars valued at less than $25,000, we usually simply return to you a set dollar figure that we mutually agree to.
These rates are absolutely the best in the industry!
We are fairly selective about the autos we choose for consignment. Please submit collectable cars in very fine condition and/or with interesting histories that have no major needs. Also interested in well preserved completely original cars, even if they may have few needs. We are able to sell any type of collectable auto in stock condition, tastefully modified hot and resto-rods, and vintage race cars. We are also well versed in selling contemporary sports, luxury, and exotic cars. Please no plastic fakes or retro-mobiles!
We bring offers to you and you will make the final decision to sell. Our initial 90 day agreement will allow us time to accurately gauge the market to determine exactly what your car is worth in the current sales environment.
