    Hey guys...
    I'm not sure what this is.
    It was posted on a local board and I MIGHT like to see it, depending on what it actually is.
    It looks familiar but its so hammered I'm thinking two different manufacturers and I can't make up my mind.
    I won't say what I'm thinking because I don't want to add influence.
    Really appreciate a few thoughts on this one! :)

    Bill it is a 4 door and not a Anglia. I was at this place a few years back. This was at the end of Gander airport.The only way to get to this spot was on the old rail bed. There is no other road going into this spot.These cars were driven on the tracks and dump here. Must be 10 or 12 cars there.I was out looking for the 49-51 merc I heard about so many times.It was gone when I got there but you can see where it was.

    Hmmmm....I don't think so...maybe.
    I don't think it had as big a bustle on the back.
    Was that one in the dump more of a Morris Minor???
    It's tough to really be sure because the one in Bay Bulls was so covered in by woods and fill.

    My son and I are gonna take a quick shot back in there tomorrow morning and get the Bus box bracket, if it doesn't snow.
    If I do I'll recheck that car as well.
     
  13. Looks like yard art to me, regardless who built it.

    There was never a thought of redoing it...:eek:
    Just hoping it was something it wasn't so that I might get a part or two off the frame.
    The search continues......:)
     
  15. Hey, it would probably make a dandy wood storage bin -
