    Don't forget to grab that fridge! Those things are absolutely gorgeous when fixed up- heck it may still even run.

    there is two of them. one is an apartment model crosley and the other is a frigidaire "54" model i think. first auto defrost. he says both work great but the small one will shock you sometimes when you open it.

    I spotted the lower toolbox before reading what it was, and I knew it looked like my Dads Plomb box that he bought new. He never had a top with it. Long after my Dad died, the local tool truck owner told me that it was the first toolbox he sold when he started out in the tool business.
     
  7. What carbs are you talking about, I dont see any parts or tools

    it appears all carbs have been rebuilt at some point. i dont think the carbs have ever had gas ran through them. the gaskets, needles, seats, etc... are in great shape. no build up and the gaskets are not bridle or stuck. im going to try and clean it up tomorrow.

    the linkages are missing and all i could find on the net cost a ton.

    Whatever the cost of that linkage, buy it and assemble it on the manifold. The last one of those I saw went for around $5000 totally rebuilt and working. Just sayin'...

    Nice score if you can get the stuff at a decent price. Just a thought, I read your intro on the new guy page and the 6 two intake just might be your bargaining chip for your 1st project. You might be able to either sell it, or trade it for a truck like you want. You can always run a stock intake on your engine. Just a thought. By the way, nice to put a face to the name. A nice face too! Good luck.

  30. Many people would beg to differ about your modeling potental. Killer car parts by the way. They look like a wicked start to any project.
