    Here's the scoop....this car belonged to a local hot rodder, Bill Jones, who passed away. It ended up in my shop to save it from the crusher. I was trying to figure out what to do with it and concluded that Bill would be ok to use the car to support the HAMB. I think this would make a great first project.

    Let me start by saying the wood is SHOT!! These cars are heavily wooded so I need to be clear that this wood is ROTTEN!!!
    Outside of that, the car is 99% complete, the sheetmetal is awesome..hardly any rust, and the drivetrain is in tact and complete. I figure this car has some unique lines and would be a good one to chop up into a pickup, or cut into a tub. Just know that the rotten wood and should be replaced with steel.
    Also, I'm sure that Pontiac restorers would be more than happy to buy the unused parts 'cause all of the metal on the car is solid.

    So here is the deal...let's open the bid at $20. You must be willing to pick the car up at my place. At the end the Auction, send the money to Ryan and I'll wait for him to confirm receiving the payment. After that, you are free to pick the car up. I'll help with the loading.

    Good Luck!!!!

    By the way...this Auction will end on Father's day (June 20th) at 10pm CST.

    50 bucks, So I can park it in my yard next to the roadster. I'd like to see the look on the apartment managers face when I cram another car in my little yard.

    Cody,
    it could be a '30. It didn't come with a title and his wife told me it was a '28. I haven't researched it at all.

    28Poncho mentioned in his intro post that his 28 had an oval window or he elluded to that anyway. Either way its freaking cool!

    I'm not the Pontiac expert by any means, but I believe it is the early '28 body.... It appears to have carriage lines like the early Model A, whereas mine is smooth, and the cowl lights are different and in a different location from mine. I believe all early Pontiacs had the oval rear window. I read in a book somewhere that Pontiac had 2 versions of the 28.... The easiest way to tell is from the vin #. The vin # can be found in 3 places, 1. A stamped brass tag on the rear crossmember, just under the gas tank filler neck, 2. Stamped in the top of the frame rail under the right front fender, 3. Stenciled in white paint on the side of the left frame rail just under the door.

    I would love to buy this one, but my ol lady said if I'd drag another car home I would be castrated... Whoever gets it can PM me, there are a few restorers I know of that may be interested in the stock parts....

    I'll post a few pics for inspiration...

    Andy
