Curtis from Maplewood, who makes a living as a Transportation equipment painter, submitted his 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie Slt to us recently. There weren't any deflated or missing rims or tires and there was a bit of moderate body damage on the car like dings, rust, paint damage, etc. It had around 177,000 miles on the odometer when he sold it and he had a current registration to use instead of a title. He was using the vehicle to get to to work. The Clunker Junker offered his $150 for it and towed the vehicle away for free on Sep 03.
"The body has 300k miles, but the engine was rebuilt a year or so ago. It runs great with no oil use. The transmission is still good. I have paperwork from guy I bought it from, but I have lost title. I can give you a bill of sale."
Here's what Curtis had to say about his 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 and about us:
We got a new battery recently and it was working great. It started up with no problems.
Yup, it would start fine but the battery was dead. It needed to be jumped
The rear taillight on the right side was broken, but it works fine. The rear view mirror is also cracked but it is still there. Otherwise, the lights and glass are good.
It was technically driveable. The engine would overheat sometimes though so I probably wouldn't recommend driving it far.
They gave me the full $150 up front and in cash before they even looked at the car. I just signed my certificate of title over and they exchanged me cash. I heard stories about other buyers promising an amount and then doing a bait and switch at the time of pickup. I’m relieved The Clunker Junker didn't try and pull this .

"The car is rusted at the bottom and something is broken, but its still drivable. The back tire needs air and the little window in the back is broken. Other than that it runs great!"
"Front passenger door will not open and the front driver door is missing a handle on the outside and inside. The spare tire is on the front left of the vehicle due to a flat. "
"There is about 200,000 miles on it. No missing parts. The vehicle does smoke some. I can't afford to keep trying to fix it. I'm hoping to get at least a $500 cash offer for it. "
"My sister gave me the van. The control arm on the right front tire is loose. It has been sitting for about a year. However, it did and probably does run, but the battery is dead. I haven't tried to start it. I have all keys, and MAY be able to get my sister to get title. She says she misplaced it, but it is paid off and she is registered owner. However she lives far away. "
"The body is a little scratched up, not bad. The heads are not included. There is a hole from a piston going through the motor. I just want to junk it for cash. "
"The Mitsubishi has 167,384 miles. The engine needs to be replaced, but the car does start. leaving for Kansas City tomorrow. I need cash ASAP. "
