    cut the car or cut the trees, Id see about a chainsaw for some of the trees. be nice to get some kind of cart back to it to load the parts on.

    Chainsaw, 4-6 people and some sort of pulling vehicle. cut the trees, lift the body over them and put it on its side.

    I would say cut the roof off as if your going to roof chop it then through the pannel under the doors would that be enough to get it out

    lets see some pics, dont take my word i have no idea!!! i would think you would cut it into 4ths if you HAD to... down the center then left to right.. then tack brace and weld it all back together... sawzall would do the trick.. use new blades and change them frequently and as straight as possible. good luck!! but again dont take my word..

    if it is a model A I believe you can remove the rear window panel and upper decklid panel/rumble seat panel, trunk/rumble seat lid, which ever it has, lower rear panel, rear floor. then I believe you may just have to cut the sub frame. that would make the body like a horse shoe shape so you could slide it forward to remove. Is it just the body or is there a frame to? I may have missed something and then to, it may be rusted and hard to remove the bolts holding all these panels together. hope this helps a little bit. good luck

  9. Pics would help.
    One person job or do You have help.
    chances are the floor is shot any way, half thru the door openings right at the rear jamb. Center sub rails around perimeter and leave it there.
    chain saw anything sticking thru the windows.
    bring some 2x4s and screws for transport braces
  10. I know and work for the Pelletier's give Rudy and Eldon a call...the American Loggers can get it out for you!!

  13. With a cordless 18 volt Milwaukee saws all and two batteries & 32 tooth blade, You can cut approximately 200 inches of single layer 18 gauge.

    If it's a Modle A, they can pretty much be disassembled with out cutting it up. I it's a 32 don't touch it if you think cutting it up is the solution.

    ive seen a transmission before...well that is the tailsection of one buried in the base of a tree. the tree acutally grew all the way around the transmission until only the tail section was left! really old junkyard.

    That though is a fairly rare car. Looks like a 37 38 Chevy flatback sedan, which are fairly rare. It would be worth getting to convert a 4dr sedan or a trunk back sedan.

    Those trees are hardly very big and I don't see how you couldn't get a truck back there.:confused:

    If those are the trees you were talking about... wow. Those don't even look like trees, they look like tall weeds.
