How To Sell Your Unfinished Project Car

There are lots of ways to try and sell your unfinished project car: eBay; local newspaper ads; restoration shops, etc. But we have a much better idea that will save you lots of time and make sure you get the best possible price for your project.

Interested? Great! Read on. . .

Let Us Finish Your Car Rebuild Project and Give You a Tax Deduction

There’s nothing more fun for those of us who love cars than finding a neglected version of that special car we love so much and bringing it back to life as a perfect restoration. If that car is like most classic car restorations, it needs body work, paint restoration, an engine rebuilt, or, most likely, everything. That’s what makes it a challenge and so much fun. Right?

While restoration projects provide hours of enjoyment, often over years, sometimes they just become too time-consuming, costly, and, occasionally, challenging to our marital relationships!

If you have an automotive rebuild project that has become too much of a time or money pit and you’re looking for help through a car restoration shop, we may be able to help.

We are super fortunate to have Daryl Alison’s Just Driven LLC managing our car donation program through the Just Donated LLC program.

Get a Tax Deduction for Your Auto Restoration Project

If your car qualifies for our program, you can donate your unfinished restoration project to the Disabled Veteran Empowerment Network (DVEN) at any point in the restoration. Just Donated, acting for DVEN, will appraise the car for its expected sale value when restoration is completed and provide you with an appraisal you can use for a tax deduction on your current year tax return.

Just Donated will complete the restoration, sell the car, and donate the proceeds to the Disabled Veteran Empowerment network to support disabled veterans.

You will be able to take a tax deduction for your project even before we sell it, and help disabled veterans in the process. It simply doesn’t get any better than that.
