Craigslist Crapshoot

The World’s Worst Car Is For Sale On Craigslist

Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly dive into the deep end of the pool filled with the automotive world’s most horrible road warriors – that you could potentially buy. After two weeks of this, a couple of things have become apparent- one, there’s a lot more crap out there than you could possibly imagine, and two, the threshold of what some of you consider carp is way lower than the rest of us.

On that second note, I’d like to call out Joshuman for offering up an amazing hand built ’50 roadster that while obviously the object of a slightly eclectic individual’s taste, is still pretty freaking cool. But that’s not why we’re here, we want the dreck, the – I wouldn’t be caught dead bungie-cording the trunk shut in the Walmart parking lot on that thing – kinds of cars that are offered for sale, and on that account you all came up with some amazingly bad contenders.

Of course, there can only be one king of the Craigslist Crapshoot per week, and to find out which car or truck rose to the top of the cespool, click on through the jump. Oh and keep looking for more of them this week!

Awful cars, terrible paint, questionable customs- last week’s selection was a cornucopia of crap. The one vehicle that stood out however, was a custom Ford Ranger found by our own Tanshanomi on the Kansas City Craigslist.

Craigslist Crapshoot 16-01-13

The paint job on this Ranger make it look like something shat out by Gauguin, or perhaps driven by some horror in Silent Hill. Well done Tans, and a hearty round of applause to the rest of you for last week’s contributions. It makes you wonder what horrors this week will hold.

      Oooh, that'd make a fun beater after some haggling over the price. The swap looks well executed and should make that light chassis scoot with a quickness. Dude is probably withholding the nice wheels he had on it before he decided to sell.

        Devin

        I'm assuming they're winter tires actually. I was initially disappointed by it, since engine swaps could be a potential for hilarity, but his was clean and well done, but then I saw the purple wheels.

          Full disclosure, since I feel guilty not admitting it: your fellow commenter is currently rockin' a Prelude of similar vintage with winter tires mounted on mint green wheels.
          I want the H22; seller can keep the Civic shell and the purple wheels as I already discovered the joy of Krylon myself.

          I've noticed my winter steelies are starting to rust – this could be the perfect chance to start getting weird with the beater.
          I do have a friend who's contemplating rattle canning the wheels or covers on his aged Legacy wagon gold. The car's mid-90s green and not Scooby rally blue, but that's besides the point. I could probably score the leftover gold paint.

    This one's subtle, it seems initially to be just an old truck with a stupid hood – the official vehicle of Saskatchewan – but you quickly begin to see bigger problems the closer you look, like the weird rattlecan paintjob, or the fact that it's clearly made out of more than one truck. Plus it doesn't go in reverse. Also the overdrive needs door handles for some reason, I don't know much about transmissions but this seems strange.

    Here's another lesson in presentation. This person wants a new sled, so you have your option of two different trucks if you have one to offer. The first is an '85 Ram described as "really nice"

    The other truck is an F150 which is less funny, but it is pictured on a flatbed with its hood up, which isn't quite a promising sign.

      Say what you will, I would drive either of those trucks. I used to drive an early eighties ram M880 that was in worse shape and only had a 318.

        I'll admit I posted them more because the whole filled with garbage/clearly mid breakdown look isn't the best ad. Sask is kind of light on the really awful stuff this week – though that cobbled together Sierra is plenty scary – but there's a lot of questionable sales tactics.

      The '81s came with a 255ci version of the Windsor V8. Which ended up being a malaise turd of an engine, because they got it to 255ci by de-boring the block and using smaller pistons. Which means all the go-faster heads don't work because the valves hit the cylinder walls. Oops. So, no way to uncork it. The 302 swap is a point in its favor, but the rest of the customizations? Well, the headlights look a little Mad Max… I'm sure the interior is 100% tasteful.
