Auctions are filled with used car dealers, too much competition over cars that you can't inspect, usually raises prices.

Calling the dealership is the best way to get a no. Best thing is to go there, behind the building and check out the cars without a plate, or that look too old to be there (signs of rust, dents, etc). Then you go see either a used car salesman, or a sales manager and try to convince him he should sell it to you.

for $1000 you should be able to get a good non running out of a junk yard and a good motor or trans and make one good one you can title

if you can find one with a good body for around 500-800 with a bad trans i'd jump on it. there are a ton around here I don't know about there. The trans's in the rangers especially the A4LD automatic is very prone to failure. you can find a used trans for between 200-400 to swap in and it doesn't take any specialty equipment. You could do it in your driveway with simple hand tools and a set of jack-stands. Just pulled mine out last week and am rebuilding it.

Sedans ftl... can't see out of them. I like trucks cause you can see your front and back end. Plus minimal blindspots.
