Craigslist Scam: 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Sedanette – $19,500
Unfortunately, while the five dollar listing fee introduced April 15th dramatically reduced scam posts, they still show up from time to time such as this one currently listed here on Craigslist in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with only two very similar pictures, a phone number to text to, and what appears to be a fantastic price.
With its early fins and the introduction of the 331 cubic inch overhead valve V8, we’ve always admired the ’49 Cadillac, especially in the fastback Sedanette body style. Since these cars do not come to market very often, this particular green example looked very familiar to us. Sure enough, a little digging and we confirmed the actual car sold at auction here on Bring a Trailer in June 7, 2017 for $70,500. Less learned: while they are rare, be careful when looking at Craigslist posts!
