    That is a nice Lincoln. Does it still have the 337 Flathead in it? I had a 50 4 door similar to yours. Big ass boat, but it ran great.

    I'd trade the '50 Chevy Fleetline 4dr for a '51 Hudson Hornet 4dr, and the '55 Pontiac Cheiftain for a '56 Olds, and the '46 Chevy coupe for a '40 Packard 120 series 4 dr. I think I'll keep the '55 Chevy and probably the '52 Buick Special Riviera.
  3. It has a Nova sub in it, Chevelle rear, and 350/350. It took a bit to get the suspension dialed in - our roads ste horrible - but once that was figured out it rides like a dream and scoots down the highway nice!

  6. Even though I've owned my 36 Chevy for almost half a CENTURY , I would trade her for a solid 67 GTO driver. I know a lot of you guys have said 66's but I like the grille and tail lights better on the 67. Growing up , my friend had a 67 and I lusted for it and still do. Many of you would object to the F100 front axle, rear leaf springs and high stance but to me it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I know these are OT (and cost ALOT more than a 36 Chevy pickup) so I'll stop right here. Ah, never mind, I could never let loose of her, shes a family member....Mitch.

    I have no interest in ever getting away from my '57 Chrysler.

    But if the right A990 clone or '28-29 RPU were offered, I'd have to give it some thought before turning it down. ;)

  9. I have my 32 sedan listed. Have come to realize that I need something other than hot rods, and would like 50's 60's car, truck, wagon. So I have this listed for sale or trade(s) with cash, or even depending on the car.
    Stuff on my mind......
    55, 56, 57 150 2 door post 210 posts, 57 Ford 300 post, throw wagons in with these as well.
    61-63 BOP or Chev 2 door post, and bubbletops, and wagons (miss my 62 impala wagon)
    35-37 48-52 56 Ford pickup (shop truck)
    C10 fleetsides all years
    And then I get a week moment when I still want a steel 33/34 three window coupe:)

    I have a rather untouched 39 standard tudor sedan that I really don't think should leave, but would trade for a 64 Merc Marauder 2dht if it was a fair deal for both of us.

    I might trade 400px-Jorge-zaragoza-1932-ford-roadster.jpg my roadster for a Perfect real B400 rod.
  12. I'd swap my Riviera or most anything else for another 49-52 Chevy either Fleetline or hardtop, or I'd swap most anything I have for a '59 Pontiac 4-door hardtop with a decent body.

    If I could trade my 63 C10 pick-up Short box stepside I would try and get one of my four favorite car's back I use to own in High School and just after High School. Just after High School I baught my best buddies Dad's "A" title Black/Black 67 Formula S Barracuda with 383 Commando wth A/C & Auto trans with console & bucket seats with 4.11 posi.
    Or my 65 SS Chevy II White with Red interior with low back bucket seats Muncie 4 speed with console & SBC 400 with 4.11 posi.
    Or my Light Blue/Blk interior/Blk Bucket Seats & Muncie 4 sp console 66 SS Chevy II with 327 and 3.73 posi.
    Or my 55 Chevy Bel Air Coupe White/ White & Light Blue Del Ray interior 327/Muncie 4 speed and 3.42 posi.
    Plus all my other Chevy II's & RS Camaro's Z/28 Camaro's & El Camino's.
    But mostly the first four above. My 66 SS Chevy II was my very first car I bought in highschool I knew ever inch of that "Loose Deuce" that was what the old owner before me named it. A bunch of good memories with pictures if I can ever find them all again after four moves in less the two year's lots of family keepsakes have not been found some gone not sure what happened to them?
    Of those four car's any one of them would make me very happy to own again...

    Traded my cars all the time. Traded a Triumph Spitfire with a 327 for a '50 Dodge which I traded for my current T bucket. Both of my sons have told me that I cannot trade the T! (I still check the classified ads and Craigslist...) 20190816_091032.jpg 0519181041c.jpg 20191005_085859.jpg

  26. The car was built years ago by Don Coleman and sold to Neal East who owned it and drove it to many West coast events. Car has been in books and became known as the Coleman Coupe. It changed hands man y times and I bought it from a HAMB member down South. I have done a complete mechanical rebuild on the car and have kept all the original patina in tact.

  29. I always wanted a 55 chevy gasser. Trading my coupe would be a tough call. It would have to be a really nice period correct gasser.
