While most of our time on eBay Motors is spent looking for a good eBay Find of the Day article or daydreaming about our next project vehicle, there are plenty of people who actually use the site to purchase cars and parts – to the tune of $3.7 billion in Q3 2012 alone. With the year coming to a close, eBay Motors has revealed the top makes and models that have rolled across its virtual auction block and where these purchases were made.

The Big Three occupied the top three spots for the top makes, while American muscle cars (Mustang, Corvette and Camaro) and Ford pickup trucks (F-250 and F-150) were the top five models. Of the $3.7 billion brought in during Q3 2012, eBay says that $2 billion was from vehicle sales and the remaining $1.7 billion was from parts and accessories. Not surprisingly, more than three-quarters of all vehicles sold on eBay during this same time period were interstate transactions with California, Florida and Texas drawing the most sales.

      The list of states selling the most vehicles on eBay Motors is similar to the top ten states by population... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_population

      It's interesting to see a lot of the American brands are the top selling. I'd assume the more tech friendly crowd would be buying German vehicles mainly.

        i wonder about the same thing. but the coyote 5.0 is what people are buying really. nvm the car, its the reputation of the new engine. the old 4.6 is dirt cheap compare to the current model. Its tunable so why not. i'm up for some cheap exhaust notes if I have the dough as well.
