Bought 1965 GTO-Tom is easy to deal with- got quick shipment of the car- Received the car it was as solid as advertised- Discovered one small issue and Tom issued a refund the repair within 1 day!! No questions or BS about it.
I first met Muscle Car Greg at an Auction 2 or 3 years ago. I recognized him from his youtube videos and I had to say hi. He was very down the earth and kind for being an internet celebrity! He is truly a class act. I ended up doing some business with Vanguard later on and while hesitant; the Vanguard team treated me right and did everything they said they would. They are very professional and honest. They only buy and sell GOOD cars, which is unheard of these days. These guys are the best in the business. I would highly recommend Vanguard Motor Sales to buy or sell classic and muscle cars. Keep up the good work guys.
Ordered my Ford mustang 1966 straight online and had it shipped to Belgium. To be honest, it is always a bit scarry to go in with blind faith but now I am the proud owner of a 1966 mustang! Thanks a mill to Tom @vanguardmotorsales and Greg for the straight honest pix and movies.
I had a new 1970 Z28 when I was in high school, unfortunately it was stolen about 8 months later. When I started looking for another Z28 online it was very intimidating, there are so many scams and misrepresentations when purchasing on the internet. There are not many of these cars for sale that have been fully restored, I found Vanguard Motor Sales and saw 2 beautiful cars. I contacted Tom and felt very comfortable with him, so I scheduled a trip from Tucson AZ to check out the car. The hospitality I received from being picked up at the airport, taken to our hotel, Dimo picked up the next morning to take my wife and I to there dealership. I was blown away by the whole experience and was not disappointed when I looked at the beautiful blue 1970 Z28. Of the 100 or more pictures and the video that I looked at a zillion times when I saw it in person it was even better. The quality of the restoration is second to none! Vanguard added a few things to the car before it shipped out today, I am sooo excited to receive it!!! No matter what classic car you are looking for, Vanguard Motor Sales is the place to go!
We we're very pleased with the attention and customer service this company offers when purchasing your treasured antique automobile. They have a great selection and help you every step of the way! We really appreciate Tommy taking good care of us for our specific needs and would recommend Vanguard Motor Sales to anyone looking to purchase their dream car. Well done guys!!
It’s always hit or miss when purchasing a car on line and you really don’t know what you’re going to end up with once it delivered. Vanguard has taken it to a new level whereas they provide as much detail they can in video, photos and history of the car so that the buyer can make an informed decision for purchasing. Vanguard sales team was professional, helpful and easy to work with. The only downside I experienced was slow delivery but overall great job. This was my first purchase with Vanguard and planning on another in the near future
From the moment I called, even through financing I received my car in 6 business days.. I was treated extremely super. They answer every question thoroughly and stay in contact throughout the process. See ya in the Spring!
Just wanted to let you know I received my truck yesterday. It's AWESOME! You and Dimo were great to work with and I really appreciate the seamless experience throughout the entire process. I was telling one of my friends that it was like shopping on Amazon. That easy. Thanks for everything and I look forward to buying my next one from you guys.
I purchased a car from Vanguard 4 year's ago and loved my experience. Everyone was great from the sales to the shipping. The cars they have are awesome and they stand behind each delivery. If you are looking to fill your classic car dream this is the place to come to. Thanks again everyone Dave M, NJ
Loving the 1965 Chevelle. It was everything they said great people to work with amazing cars and delivery! Thanks again Tom, Tracy and everyone at Vangaurd first class place!
I recently purchased a 1965 Mustang from Vanguard. I did not have the opportunity to fly to Plymouth to inspect the car, which is always a risk. I did a thorough review of Vanguard online and saw that the reputation from current/former customers was pretty good, and figured they must be doing something right as a seller. Upon delivery of the car, I was very happy with the condition. It was described exactly how it was. There was a small oversight (small pen mark on passenger seat) which I addressed to Tom. His immediate response was, if you cant get it out....get the seat redone and we will pay for it. I was in shock. Perhaps its because I'm from New York where most dealers would tell you to F*** yourself post purchase, but that certainly wasn't the case with Tom and his team. Additionally, upon having the vehicle for about a week, and driving it locally, I noticed that the carburator was struggling to receive gas from the fuel pump. After calling a mechanic in, it was decided that both the carb and the fuel pump should be replaced (both were in good condition, but were malfunctioning) upon speaking with Tom, again his response was, get an estimate and send us the bill. Folks, this is unparalleled customer service. I was NOT expecting that response (I actually wasnt even calling to ask him to pay for it) but the offer was accepted. The guys at Vanguard are unbelievable. I would without a shadow of a doubt purchase from these guys again. I cant tell you how happy I am with the responsiveness and willing to make things "perfect" for me. I purchased this car for my father (who has stage 4 cancer) and wanted him to enjoy driving a classic while he still has his health. Without Tom and his crew, and their willingness to go above and beyond..This is now possible. Thank you guys for everything you have done. My next purchase will be a Bel Air from you.. And this time, I will be less aggressive in negotiating a price, and let you make some money back. If there was 6 stars to give on reviews, I would.
Greg, Tom, Trey, Marie, and Tracy all did a fantastic job getting my dream truck to me in California. Top notch organization with incredible people and cars! Would definitely look to do business with them again.
The video tour was key. They didn't just point out the best parts about the car, they also pointed out small flaws. Then when the car arrived, I was absolutely thrilled with what I got. Great company to work with. Highly recommended.
Thank You Vanguard! We love 68 Road Runner you delivered to us. The video we saw we saw online was great and we weren't disappointed when we arrived. Greg "Hollywood" Payne did a great job going through the car with us and it made our buying decision very easy. I have given out Vanguards name to everyone and I am confident if any of them buy a car they will be pleased also. We will buy again from them.
Purchased a beautiful 1969 Dodge Charger and received it a week later the car was in perfect condition and I was so pleased would recommend Vanguard Motors to any person looking for a nice collector car
By far the best experience I’ve ever had purchasing a car. Tommy and Dimo were both incredibly professional, quick to answer any questions, and true enthusiasts with a passion for what they do. Them and their team made the whole process painless and I couldn’t recommend anyone but them for this type of specialty vehicle transaction.
Hi Tom: Just wanted to drop you a line thanking you and the whole Vanguard team for one of my most memorable summers ever! Since my teenage years,(a long time ago) I have dreamed of owning a '69 AMX and Vanguard Motor Sales made that happen. From the technicians who certified the car for licensing here in Ontario,to the countless people that take photos when I'm fueling up,everyone is astonished at this vehicle's pristine condition.You are all to be commended for selecting such excellent classic examples of American muscle to sell! I truly enjoyed cruising this summer watching and listening to reactions everywhere we went,never hesitating to recommend your dealership and its website.We are quickly approaching "bedtime" here for the "X" but I'm looking foward to spring and many more miles. All the best to everyone in Plymouth,yours truly;Kevin H.
Vanguard motors delivers what they promise. The online videos are the real deal. My husband and I could not decide between 2 cars so we drove about 1300 miles round trip to test drive them both and we were certainly not disappointed. There were no surprises from what we saw online to what we witnessed in person. Owners Tommy and Jim were very helpful and Neal was one of the most knowledgeable Mopar guys we've ever met. Delivery was made as promised with our car in exact same excellent condition as we left it in the showroom. They made it possibly the easiest car buying experience we've ever had. Thanks Vanguard! We will definitely buy from you again!

My Road Runner arrived yesterday and now is parked in my drive way (actually under a cover in my garage).. Want to say how happy I am to have the car home and how impressed I am with the car and the people at Vanguard.. This car is more than a dream to me, since I had one of these in 1969 new, its more a lifetime achievement award.. Finding these type of cars (not projects) is difficult and time consuming. Finally taking the time to visit your dealership was a once in a lifetime choice for me. Having Greg walk up and ask what car I came to look at just as I walked in, to Neal giving me my Vanguard T-shirt and Tracy taking care of all the details was unique.. Such a relaxed experience and I truly felt like I was dealing with real “ car guys “..Neal I can’t tell you how relaxed you made me feel when you explained the car and its features to me, when the car shipped I knew it would be in great shape when it arrived because you seemed so sincere the numerous times we talked about the car.. I understand there are many people behind the scenes who worked on this car, cleaned it and made it ready, to all of you I give you my warmest thanks.. This car will continue to be well cared for and never sold.. Greg, you had a cell phone picture of you, Neal and I standing in the middle of the shop (selling Mopars) while I was there and I’d like to have it sent to me if you still have it, it was taken from the overhead camera system and really added to my experience. Where else can you go and be so relaxed and feel the sincere, personal touch? Sorry I didn’t get to meet everyone there, but from the few I did meet you all made it feel personal to me.. While these cars are investments to many its more than that to me.. I’ll visit again to say hello and thank you in person.. This car is a big deal to me, more than car shows, or cruise in’s, this car is full of memories and pride in America. American iron and true muscle. The way it should be. I can never explain how it feels to just look at this car, hear it rumble or drive it. All I can say is thanks. This is very personal to me and I can’t believe I have it home.
After my first purchase, I said I would not hesitate to do business with Vanguard again. I just purchased my second 67 Chevelle in a year! As with my first purchase, I did not have the luxury of making a trip to Michigan to inspect the car so this one was also purchased sight unseen. Once again, Vanguard did not disappoint. Beautiful car and exactly what I was expecting. The video and pictures provided are spot on, very informative and well done. Thank you Vanguard!!! My wife and I now have "His and Hers" 67 Chevelles and we couldn't be happier. Merry Christmas!!!
Just wanted to let you know that Neal and the guys in the shop did a great job on the car. I also wanted to tell you how much it means to me and my family. You went above and beyond what another dealer would have done to make us happy with our muscle car investment. I will buy from you again and tell all my friends to buy a car from you. In closing, I just want to say thanks to everyone at Vanguard. From Rob in Ohio, a customer for life.
Nice car that was bought for our company. Photos and details were spot on. They arranged shipping and everything went well and on schedule.
I have visited both Vanguard Motor Sales locations and been blown away by the quality of presentation of hundreds of clean vehicles that are gassed and ready for me to park in my driveway. The Keel Street showroom is a car aficionado’s dream, replete with friendly, knowledgeable people to help with getting my car to my driveway. I have traveled the world and never seen better volume and variety.
My husband and I visited Vanguard Motor Sales on June 22, 2019 as we had first met this fine group of people at the 2018 Barrett Jackson Car Auction in Las Vegas. They spoke of their showroom in Plymouth, MI and said we should stop by sometime. They did not disappoint. The finest selection of vehicles around! Top notch quality and top notch service! Thank you Tom for the warm reception. We WILL be back and will recommend to others!
I had been looking for a classic Lincoln MarkV for 4 mths threw out the U.S. Finally Tom at Vanguard got a hold of me with a few.Had just what I wanted, Great car , great shape outstanding just what I was looking for, they treated me great just like family ,great people.They are very reputable classic car dealer which not only sells high end classic but also high end muscle cars And they own their inventory.Great people to work with.
I found Vanguard's site about two weeks ago and was very impressed with the quality of cars they had advertised. As luck would have it I had a business trip to Lansing today and we decided to drive over to Vanguard to check this place out. We happened to meet Tom as we walked in and were immediately welcomed in. We walked the through the entire garage area, spoke with Greg, spoke to employees, looked at cars, asked questions. I have never felt more welcomed and like family than with this group of people. I have never seen more high quality cars cars in one location that this. And Then.... We were invited to the offsite warehouse with Sammy. Speechless. We spent over an hour in this warehouse. Just two of us and Sammy. He patiently answered every question with car guy enthusiasm. We learned about their intense and thorough inspection process that accepts only the highest quality cars that makes sure that what you see is what you get. Any reservations I had about buying a site unseen car from Vanguard is gone. I can assure you that your expectations will be exceeded in every way if chose to purchase your car here. After meeting these wonderful people and spending some time here I do not have to purchase from Vanguard, I sincerely want to purchase from Vanguard.
I have yet to experience a better combination of caring classic car enthusiasts and professionalism. Both their inventory and knowledge is expansive!
Tom, Jim and the whole staff at Van Guard Motor Sales are class acts . The inventory is top notch and the customer service is second to none . If you are in the market for a classic i recommend checking these guys out .
I started looking for a Cobra about a year ago, and was steered to Vanguard. I looked at several videos and countless pictures of stock vehicles and others that were sold. Finally made the decision to purchase and could not be happier with the level of service and professionalism at Vanguard. Tom, Dimo, Tracy, and Shelly made the experience very enjoyable and seamless. I was treated like family and never felt uncomfortable about any part of the transaction. Prior to receiving the vehicle I was sent a very cool video going over the car and maintenance info. What an awesome touch! My Cobra was delivered on 3/11 by Brett who is a really great guy with Muscle Car Transport. He unloaded the car and went over it with me to insure it was delivered in pristine condition. He insisted I take the car for a short ride and did a little video afterwards. An all around awesome experience from start to finish!! You can't go wrong with Vanguard. I would HIGHLY recommend them and I'll be back. Thank you all!
The best company when it comes to buying a old school. My family has been coming here for years. Tommy and staff are the best you will ever deal with. No bs at all, they dont waste your time. All there vehicles are so clean and they are so professional. Thanks Vanguard for my dads dream car. God bless you all.
I have been looking for a 1965 GTO for almost a year. I had used a multi-pronged search approach, including Internet for private and dealer sales, the auction circuit, and car shows. Although I owned a 65 a long time ago, I tried to obtain as much information about the car as I could, including applicable Pontiac websites and hard copy reference material. The more I learned and re-learned, the more selective I became with respect to finding the right car. My objective was to buy a runner, not a collector car. I wanted one in excellent condition with a specific color palette in mind. As the year progressed, I passed up, and missed out on a few cars that might have been a keeper, but undaunted kept the effort going. In mid November of last year, I found a web listing for 65 in the Vanguard Motor Sales website. What was interesting is that I did not recall seeing any cars listed on the Internet by this dealer. As soon as I saw the car in an enticing video presentation, I promptly placed a deposit. My son and I drove nine hours from New Jersey to Vanguard’s showroom in Plymouth, Michigan. A staff member showed us the car and allowed a floor inspection. Although I restored a Corvette and my son graduated with a degree in auto mechanics and restored a Mustang, we were instantly impressed with the car which showed better than the video. After the inspection and two test drives, we decided to purchase the car with no reservation. Tom Photsios, Vanguard owner introduced himself who made us feel welcome by engaging in a friendly and personal conversation. We asked about several minor observations gleaned during inspection that Tom indicated would be fixed at no extra charge. Delivery was arranged by Vanguard included in the purchase price, which we saw as another customer perk. Prior to delivery of the car, I received a short video from Vanguard showing the car in all its glory prior to shipment. What a surprise! Upon receipt, a short inspection revealed all the punch list items identified during the inspection were addressed. As you can see, the customer experience at Vanguard was first rate for us. Beginning with the candid web ad to delivery day, the entire experience was a pleasure. We as car enthusiasts know that any 60 year old vintage muscle car is bound to come with a few surprises, however, we are convinced the folks at Vanguard made a terrific effort to present this car factually, and in the interest of the customer. Praise and thank you to all the folks at Vanguard for a wonderful vintage car shopping experience.
I want to thank Vanguard Motor for not only getting me a bitchin car, my 72’ Olds 442, but also making it super easy. Tom was great making the deal and then dealing with Tracy was a great experience. In a world where customer service is horrendous, she was super responsive and did everything to make it all happen smoothly. The best! I never leave reviews but wanted to say thanks to Tom Tracy and the Vanguard Team!
Purchased our dream car from Vangaurd Motors. It was an excellent experience. The car was bought as my retirement gift. We love it!
I have been living in Plymouth MI for 57 years and never heard about Vanguard Motor Sales. I stopped by one month ago and walked out as a proud owner of a 1971 Chevolet Chevele, she is a beautiful. My experience with Vanguard from start to finish was excellent. I dealt with Dimo and Jenifer and cant say enough about them and the hole staff. Thanks Vanguard and look forward to my next purchase. Don Stork
This one of the best decision I've made when purchasing car. I've been on this for a year and a half. This is my dream, and I had many thanks for Vanguard Motor Sales. Thanks, Tom, Greg, Neil, and Tracy for putting my dream in my driveway.
Finally figured out how to show my appreciation for the wonderful experience it was buying a classic muscle car from you guys. Purchase a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner and I am thrilled to death.....the service sales everything from start to finish was exceptional Thank you thank you thank you Vinny Richardson
Our car is beautiful and I can not wait to go for a ride in it! Its so shiny and absolutely perfect! Thank you for your help and having this car. Thank you for the t-shirts as well! I will send a picture of us with the car in the future!
Amazing place!! What a showroom! And wait until you see the cars they keep in storage. My Mustang was even nicer than they had described online. The pictures did not do it justice. If you are new to the hobby, you have to check this place out. I learned so much and the salesperson gave me his card so I could call with any questions. You don't invest in a classic car every day, and I am glad I can call or even visit them as they are just 20 minutes away.
Had an old school hot rod that I wanted to get rid of, there was no market for it where I lived. I searched for places that specialize in cars of this type. That’s when I came across Vanguard. I called them and explained my situation, sent them some pictures and they offered to buy it. They sent a buyer to look at the car, we both settled on a price that worked for both parties. A couple of days later they had a trailer there to pick it up. One I got them the title, I got the funds we agreed upon. Very good communication, and nice people to work with. Would definitely recommend them!
Highly recommend, Great communication with Tom our car arrived in fantastic condition to Australia, 69 Dodge Charger RT....
