    Hey guys! Just Picked up a 1929 Ford 5 Window Coupe from Arcadia, CA Guy was 25 Years old and bought him a 29 Ford 5 Window Coupe he put it in the garage and it never came out till yesterday Sunday the 22nd I don't know the whole story except he is now 85 and they are doing a estate sale!
    It has a 1956 CA title & a 1959 Registration card! The Original motor is still in the car! Those old cars are still tucked away somewhere!

    Hey Gang!
    Tks for all the reply's but this car has been sitting in a garage for 60 years and deserves these reply's! Well we are all getting old and I just got my medicare card in the mail so that says a lot! Now my step son Matt is following my footsteps and loves what we all like! He's a special education teacher that after work dreams in our world! He sends me 10 email s a day ck this out! how about this one? Look at this! Well he sent this Craigslist ad and Whoa! That's the one! it was listed for I think 6 mins when he found it I took over and the rest is history! 38 miles from home it was not a big problem! Matt has his first Rod!
    We got it home been sorting it out! a bunch of parts a lot of it wrapped in newspapers 1961 No history was told on condition of car! looking at motor bright green paint maybe rebuilt before put away! Pulled plugs and clean tan burnt no black at all! Well 60 years!!! Water Pump stuck so took off belt but no luck motor stuck! Soaking with Marvels and hoping we can get it un stuck! Matt being a teacher and newly wed not a lot of $$$$ extra right now but he will get a little help from Solo Speed Shop not too much as Grasshoppers do have to learn the right way! We need a motor crank to help bust it loose! Heading up to Solo Speed Shop & I think The Mail Truck has one! Tks again! Bill IMG_1670.JPG 13.jpg

    That box truck is COOL!

    You could have a super nice car if you restore it, sure, but you could have a super novel hop up by giving it a downdraft & intake, new header/exhaust, high compression head, ignition, and a vintage big quick change rear so you can retain the wheels but still get down the road at a decent rate of speed.
