    This was in a barn literally 250 yards from my house. Now it's in my shop. My father in law knows the folks who owned it and made them a deal on it. We found some newspapers in it from 1980.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Ha! Scrapiron... My son was hanging out with one of the neighbor kids and messing around in the barn about a year ago when he came across it. He has a keen eye and reported back asap! My father in law actually worked for the owner when he was younger (the owner has since passed) but we knew nothing about the car until my son found it.

    The chop is really rough and the floor fell out of it when we lifted it, but it is definitely worth saving. We don't have any plans for it yet other than keeping it in the family. I really hope I can build it.

    Man must have been hard driving the truck home with that all in tow.

    Can't imagine a happy dance of that proportion being something easily controlled until you got
    It home haha

    Tim, we literally live around the corner from this barn. It wasn't a long drive, but we were smiling!

    image.jpg Sweet! I found my 28 model Tudor at a garage sale 1/2 a mile from my house. Lived there fourteen years and didn't know it was there.

    Nice! You know it's a proper "barn find" when there are horse collars hanging on the wall nearby! As you might suspect from my username, we have a few of those hanging in our barn too. In fact, the whole harness is hanging under the collars, right where my grandfather left it when he switched to using tractors. Sadly, he didn't leave any cool old cars parked in the barn.

    What a tough MoFo.

    build it - build it loud, and drive it hard.
    Great score.
