About DesertClassics... In 2001, DesertClassics was created by Steve Murphy in order to sell extra cars from a friend's Elko, Nevada classic vehicle collection. A friend acquired these classic and vintage vehicles over many decades with the goal of restoring them. He only purchased unusual cars and trucks that came from the dry western desert and were complete, solid and straight. He had decided to concentrate on the restoration of his rarest vehicles and asked me to sell the vehicles he would never get around to restoring. That was the beginning of DesertClassics. In 2005, DesertClassics moved to Butte Montana USA. In 2012, the company moved to it's current location in Anaconda, Montana.
Since then, DesertClassics has added hundreds of classic and vintage cars, trucks and farm tractors for sale from the dry high deserts of Nevada, Idaho, Montana and other places around the USA. During this time, hundred and hundreds of classic and vintage vehicles have been sold to happy customers all around the world. As vehicles are sold, they are removed from the website sales listing and placed in the Sold Vehicle Archives. New classic and vintage cars, trucks and farm tractors are added to the website regularly..
Today, DesertClassics.com has grown to a finder group affiliated. full-service company specializing in finding and selling original, restored and restorable project classic cars, trucks and farm tractors. The company sells vehicles throughout the USA and exports all over the world.
Vehicles for sale on DesertClassics are primarily found in the high, dry western USA desert climate and thus are mostly rust-free. The high desert, with very low precipitation and humidity, preserves old vehicles like no other place in the world.
DesertClassic's founder grew up building street rods in Sacramento, California during the sixties. These were the days and nights when cruising and open street racing was the rule rather than the exception. For many years, he and his friends cruised K Street, raced J and L Streets and hung out at Mel's Drive-In, Bob's and the A & W on Freeport Blvd. While many short races took place on J and L Streets...stop-light start, 6-8 block races....but the serious street racing took place in West Sacramento. The long stretch of pavement adjacent to the Port Of Sacramento served as the place where the big, fast cars and hotrods faced off. There were also serious high-speed road races on the Pocket Road along the river in South Sacramento, where unfortunately a number of notorious Capital City street racers lost their lives. Those were the wild and dangerous days of garage-built hot rods. Alot of things have changed since those good old early hod rod and street rod days..
DesertClassics is dedicated to finding classic, vintage and antique cars, trucks and farm tractors that help you fulfill your dreams.
