Facebook Watch will premiere its car-centric docuseries Pick, Flip & Drive later this month.

The Eureka Productions-made series follows auto auctioneer Jim Eli and his family as they seek out classic cars from barns and backyards across Montana to “flip” them — turning them into custom-designed works of art for sale.

After each episode, the cars featured, from vintage 50s trucks to 70s muscle cars, will be available for purchase on community sales space Facebook Marketplace. Each vehicle will be available for up to 48 hours after the episode, with the chosen buyer featured at the top of the following episode.

Vehicles featured include a 1958 Chevy Apache, a 1965 Mustang Coupe, a 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlas, a 1982 Corvette and even a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle.

Pick, Flip & Drive is executive produced by Eureka’s Paul Franklin, Chris Culvenor, Wes Dening and Matthew J. Braley. Dirk Gibson and Sam Wasserman executive produce for Inspired Entertainment and Wasserman Productions, respectively. Toby Faulkner and Jeffery Rich serve as EPs for Facebook Watch.

The series premieres Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Facebook Watch.
