I highly recommend Sterling Motors as the best point of consignment sale for your classic vehicle. Our unique Packard 1950 Hot Rod Hearse was sold by John, what can be better?! Much more importantly, John is the person you can trust: he took good car of our car, found a buyer for it and sent me the check without any delay or deduction. Excellent service!

I can totally recommend Sterling Motors Inc. I am from Germany and I bought my new vintage car (Mercedes SL500) online at their website. The car arrived in a perfect condition and in the same way as described online. There were no problems at all. The company is trustful. Thank you John!


I want to personally thank John D. More and his staff at Sterling Motors, Inc. for the outstanding efforts they played in my purchase of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle in December.  Many might think that living in Boise, ID would make purchasing a vehicle in Illinois too difficult, but John made it as easy as it could be.  He worked out a competitive rate with a hauler and information between both Sterling and the hauler kept me informed each step along the way.  Best of all, the (used) bike was delivered right to my driveway and the bike’s condition surpassed my expectations.   Thank you John and team!

I'll start with, I've bought many motorcycles over time but never one over the internet from another state. I had plenty of apprehension. I found the perfect bike at Sterling Motors and the price was right. I proceeded with caution. John the owner put my mind at ease through the entire process, his communication was awesome and he communicated with me right through the delivery and licensing. I ended up with a beautiful bike at a very reasonable price. I recommend Sterling Motors.

If you're serious about selling a vehicle, look no farther than Sterling Motors Inc. (HotRodsChoppers.com). Best money I've ever spent to sell a vehicle! Don't waste your time trying to do it yourself, and messing around dealing with scammers, and people who are not serious about buying! John gets the job done quickly, and gets the maximum out of your vehicle! John and Tiffany are absolutely wonderful people to deal with, and have your best interest in mind when selling your vehicle! If the occasion ever arises again for me to sell a vehicle, I will not hesitate to get with John immediately! THANK YOU JOHN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I appreciate Sterling Motors taking care of the sale of my '84 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible. Of great service to me was Sterling Motor's disregard of prospects who offered a ridiculously low price. John knew I wouldn't consider these and did not even bring them to me. Only serious offers were brought forth. Also, I felt the commission was fair, given the marketing, negotiations, and keeping the car show ready, which Sterling did. For me it was the best way to sell my car!

Dear John,
Thanks so much for the outstanding work installing a new Audio System into my 1972 442 convertible!  Trusting someone to work on such a great piece of history is a difficult thing to do.  I now wish I wouldn't have made you work two years talking me into it!!!!  The new system is beyond fantastic and a good value.  I know I was hesitant to cut into a 43 year old car, but your vision for the finished product far exceeded my expectations in every way!  It is hard to make a convertible big block's Audio perfect, but you have the right formula to make it happen.  I have seen so many classic cars that have a stereo system that really wrecks the authentic interior look and feel of the vehicle, and yet still sounds like crap!  The system you installed is so clear and loud, and yet virtually transparent to the car's interior.  I really love the modern features of the system.  Being able to do everything from my phone is awesome!  I so appreciated your guys' hours of hard labor, while treating the car with the utmost respect!  I would highly recommend Sterling Motors to anyone for complex Audio work and just say that; what you do far exceeds any DIY home job!
Thanks again buddy!

In September I purchased a used 09 HD Roadglide CVO from Sterling Motors.  The pictures that John had posted on his website for helpful in deciding on whether to make this purchase.  Minor damage to the bike was disclosed and emails and phone calls were promptly returned.   I had some questions about the bike that the previous owner needed to answer and John contacted the previous owner and got the information in a timely manner. When I showed up to inspect and test ride the bike there was some damage found that John had not noticed. John offered to write a check to off-set repair costs and made the purchase deal reasonable and fair to me.   Additionally I noticed that the heel shifter was removed by the previous owner and John researched and found a matching CVO heel shifter on eBay, that saved me a lot of money versus getting the part from a HD dealership.  Overall, John facilitated the sale well, and made the deal fair and reasonable to me. I would recommend him to others to sell a bike and to check his inventory for quality bikes. Hope this was not too long John,,,,  but you did make the sale smooth and I appreciate that you took time to find that heel shifter on eBay. By the way...the bike is running good........looks really sharp//!!

Thanks,,,    David S

Hi John,
I just want you to know that my experience with you and Sterling Motors Inc was over and above! From the first day I stopped in until the day I picked up my check you were on top of your game! I would guess I have had about 40 or 50 car transactions in my life and none were ever a smoother ride! If I can ever refer someone or personally do business with you again,  I won't hesitate for a minute John.   

Thanks again......Kevin Considine


I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks on the consignment sale of my 1967 Mustang Convertible.  I also wanted to compliment you on how quickly you sold the vehicle and your professionalism throughout the transaction.  As background, I spoke with you last fall regarding the potential sale and finally made the decision to part with the car in late March.  We discussed the asking price and determined the expected sales price was within my range of comfort.  I signed the consignment papers on Tuesday, March 25th and you advised me that a 90 day window was to be expected.  You detailed the car and started marketing the vehicle on Sat., March 29th and called me just two days later with an offer!  After a few days of negotiations with a dealer who was going to market the car in France, we agreed on a price that was above my expectations.  It was hard to let the car go, especially considering the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, but you made the consignment sale and negotiations very easy.  The fact that you have sold other vehicles to this dealer from your website certainly evidences your global reach and expertise in the resale of classic cars.  I will be happy to provide you and Sterling Motors a strong reference in the sale of vintage automobiles.  Thanks again for your counsel and quick turn on the sale of my Mustang.

Best Regards,

Michael C. Fliss


I just wanted to write a quick note and thank you for how you handled the sale of my 66 Chevy C10. I was a little apprehensive in responding to the e-mail you sent when I had the truck posted on Craigslist. After spending some time looking at your website I decided to give you a call. From the moment your secretary answered the phone I knew this was a class act. You handled everything very professionally allowing me to feel comfortable leaving my truck and the title in your possession. When I got a call 3 days later with an offer I was stunned. I was even happier when you closed the deal and mailed me a check! I would highly recommend you and your staff to any one looking to buy or sell a classic vehicle!

Thanks again!!!

Hi John, just wanted to thank you again, I took a big chance flying from Trinidad to Illinois to buy a bike seen on your online ad. I took your word it was a sound bike and would be ready for a road trip. I appreciate the way you let me order my gear and have it sent to your shop for when I arrived. You were even there on Monday (a day off) to close the deal with me. Well the bike ran great from Sterling to Southwest Mississippi. It was a cold start but it kept getting warmer the further south I got (just gotta luv the south). Been riding it every day since I've been back, now I hate to go back to work. I guess the Caribbean's not so bad... thanks again


This is our family with Lady Blue the 2012 Tri Glide we purchased from Sterling Motors. Wonderful treatment at Sterling Motors and great easy sales encounter with Tiffany & John. Price was very Great and we Love the Trike. Would Buy or sell at Sterling Motors, Inc. Again. Thanks so much to John.

A short note to let you know we were pleased with the consignment service you provided for selling our 1972 Gran Torino. The information you provided to the interested public was done in a very professional manner, especially the picture show which gave prospective buyers a detailed insight of the condition of the vehicle. The presentation of information certainly had an influence on the quick sale. We also appreciate your expertise utilized toward a secure financial transaction. Thank you,
Harlan & Pat

Larry purchased our 2008 Big Bear Chopper Sled less than 7 days after we received it!

Hello And thanks Sterling Motors It was wonderful dealing with John and the entire staff the deal went great and smooth from start to finish, John gave me a honest opinion of the bike I bought which every word turned out to be true, stayed past business hours to make the deal happen, found an enclosed trailer to tow the bike home for me, bike was very clean, and the staff even recommended a good restaurant while I was there. Im happy with my 2008 Big Bear sled Chopper thanks Sterling Motors 

John and his crew at Sterling Motors really did a great job selling my Harley. In the middle of winter with a slow market John was able to advertise and get it sold. Look forward to dealing with John and his team again if I am in the market to buy or sell.

Thanks Shaun
