    Look at them real close are they NOS and just rusty? Rarely do you find wishbones and axles seperate, the value is in the fact that you are saving hours of labor removing the spring pearches.

    Nice find. You're right, they are still out there. I've got a model a coupe that had been in a barn since the mid 70's. If you're worried about the wood inner structure, talk to some early chevy guys. In fact my good buddy is building a 28 chevy phantom sedan delivery out of a tudor sedan. He replaced all the wood inner structure with steel. He's ghost28 here on the hamb. Good luck with it.

    There's a Model T in that garage too. You have to do some acrobatics to get to it but it's there.

    Cool place to spend a day.

    Sweet!

    And YES they do exist. Was talking with a buddy Saturday that went and toured 2 60' x 30' barns FILLED with NOS flathead engine parts. Literally thousands of parts...owner is 80+ and has been hoarding since 32'. Raced all his life. Amazing and 20 minutes from my house.
