Success Story: 1981 Chevrolet C30 Silverado

A while back, we helped find a new home for this 1981 Chevrolet C30 Silverado. Kristin C had submitted it as a BF Classified with a fairly low asking price. While I was reviewing it, I thought it looked like a good truck that could possibly fetch more than she was asking. So I contacted her and offered to upgrade it to a Barn Finds Auction for free, with one catch, she needed to provide us with substantially more photos. Thankfully, her son was able to take a ton of photos of it and soon we had it listed. If you didn’t follow the auction, it was quite the heated battle. The winning bid came in at $10,200! It turned out that the winner, Jim C, lives a few hours down the road from Kristin and was able to come to get the truck in person. Both parties are very happy with how the transaction went and we are happy to have helped find a good home for this truck!

Here’s what Kristin had to say about her experience listing this truck as a BF Auction: “It’s been a great experience and you were an instrumental part of getting the listing posted and sold. I believe your assistance with writing the listing was a key factor in selling the truck at a great price. You have been so responsive to all my questions during the entire process – even when it took days for me to respond back to you. As a matter of fact, I’m so pleased with how easy the process is that we have another truck that we might want to sell on Barn Finds. And we will be sure to tell everyone we know about Barn Finds and how awesome this experience has been. The transaction took place on Friday right after it passed smog. We had a perfect buyer and he said the truck was exactly what he thought it would be from the pictures and the information we gave him. Definitely a success story! Thanks again for all of your assistance! Barn Finds is the BEST!”

We want to thank Kristin for listing her truck with us and for being willing to supply more photos, plus for taking the time to respond to everyone’s questions. We also want to congratulate Jim on winning the auction and wish him the best of luck with it. If you have a classic car or truck that you’d like to sell, be sure to consider listing it as a Barn Finds Auction!

    Good job! I’m glad everyone is happy. Isn’t it sad that people helping others for no other reason than to help them out has become such a rarified occurrence?
    Barn Finds has taken a well deserved giant step up in respect.
    God bless you and your staff.
