Auctions

Getting a Japanese vehicle from auction is exciting (and addictive)!

Whether it’s for an economical or practical daily driver, a unique project,
or one of the many sought-after classics that Japan is known for,
you can usually find something to suit your taste at the auctions.

How do the JDM car auctions work?

These are like a ‘sealed bid’ auction – the time counts down to the beginning of the auction, when everyone bids their maximum amount. The highest (typically) wins for a few hundred more than the second-placed bid – unless there is a hidden reserve.

The standardized process for auctioning a Japanese vehicle provides a thorough description of the car’s condition on an auction sheet. This process reduces some of the risk of buying a car sight-unseen. If you have given your deposit, we can translate the auction sheet for free for units that you like.

JDM cars at auction can be listed up to 4 days in advance, but are often posted with only 24 hours notice.

Best of all, browsing is FREE!

We have two portals to the main Japanese car auctions, each with their own strengths for accessing current auction listings, some historical sales data and dealer stock:

a lot of people asking what these go for and not a single answer… it’s easier to guess with cars that scroll by daily

I've never seen one of these tbh. Top mount intercooler on an inline 4 cylinder with awd? Sort of like a Subaru but without the issues of a boxer engine. Neat.

If only it was a b18c 🀣🀣

I have driven one for a number of years. It was a blast to drive and not even manual. 1.6 but easilt beat any 1.8. Very nimble and peppy. I dont mind having it again if only reasonable in price.

Understanding JDM auction sheets

If you are wondering what “4/B”, “H15” or “A1” means – don’t worry, you’re not alone!

Decoding and translating what the Japanese inspectors have written on the JDM auction sheets is part of what we do as our service to our clients. We know you like to browse the auctions on your own anyway, and we have created an auction sheet primer.
