New Facebook Watch Series, "Pick, Flip & Drive”
Get ready to make an offer to drive your dream car! In the new Facebook Watch series “Pick, Flip & Drive,” auto-auctioneer Jim Eli and his family find vintage automobiles from barns and backyards across Montana and flips them into custom-designed works of art. From vintage ’50s trucks to classic ‘70s muscle cars, viewers watch as junkyard bound vehicles are transformed into amazing driving machines. Following the reveal, every car featured in the episode will be available for purchase on Facebook Marketplace, a place to discover, buy, and sell items. The first episode debuted on Facebook Watch on November 12.
In the premiere episode of “Pick, Flip & Drive,” Jim picked a 1958 Chevy Apache from a small family farm in Dutton, Montana. With the help of his team, they replace its old Straight 6 engine with a 350 V8 Small Block (pulled directly from Jim’s wife’s 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle), and they restore the truck’s original box and give it an era-correct turquoise and white paint job, plus more!
Other cars featured on “Pick, Flip & Drive” include a ‘65 Mustang Coupe, a ‘71 Oldsmobile Cutlass, an ‘82 Corvette, and just for the fun of it, the Eli family transform a 1999 VW Beetle! Each of these will be posted for sale for up to 48-hours on Facebook Marketplace after every episode, allowing viewers to buy the actual cars seen in the show. The chosen buyer will be unveiled at the top of the following week’s episode, before Jim and his family reveal the next car they’ll be picking, flipping and selling.
For fans, followers and car enthusiasts, “Pick, Flip & Drive” also allows viewers to comment, like and share each amazing transformation, via the “Pick, Flip & Drive” show page on Facebook Watch.
