Are you a classic car collector or would you like to start enjoying this hobby? If so, you may want to buy a 1949 Mercury. Craigslist is a great place to look for this old, classic car. How can you get started?
There are two main ways to search Craigslist.org. Your two options include performing searches on the website or using a Craigslist search tool, which can serve as your own personal car finder. Which method of searching is the best?
Searching for a 1949 Mercury on Craigslist.org
This approach involves visiting the classified website. From the main page, select your state and then nearest city. On the left-hand side of the page, there will be a search box. Use the search box and enter in “1949 Mercury.” You can do the same for other classic cars too. On the next page, you will see a list of your search results. Since these classic cars may be hard to find, you may get no results. See, Craigslist only allows visitors to search one location page at a time, no more. If you don’t find a Mercury listed for sale, go back and select a new city or state. Repeat the process until you find the 1949 Mercury that you were looking for.
Searching for a 1949 Mercury with a Craigslist Search Tool
When you download and use a Craigslist search tool, you get a desktop tool. Right from the program window, you can perform a search. Search with the name of the classic car. A list of your results will appear at the top of the program window. You can click on each to see the actual Craigslist.org posting in the window below. The neat part is that you are still in the program. Most importantly, is the ability to search multiple cities, entire states, or all of Craigslist at once. You don’t need to perform multiple searches, as you would need to by visiting and searching Craigslist.org.
Most individuals find the best luck searching with a desktop tool, as it is easier and quicker. You can try both those and compare the results.
