Here are a couple of recent finds.
Factory air parts from the '66, also the grille looks super nice. Hood lip trim if it's there. Looks like one of those speed warning speedometers, too.
That panel below the grille in the pickup, and hell loose fenders? Go to it man.
i think that is a 65 lesabre not a 66 it looks just like my cousins. there are some great parts still on that thing
Damn....nothing but "Easter egg" cars when I go. Although, one day I scored a nice pair of 49 chevy PU rear fenders at Grace street U-pull-it and a few years ago there was a 51 Vicky being parted out.
Come to think of it...there was a complete 53 Chrysler with big 6...I scored the light switch knob.
I wish I would have seen those cars! How long ago was that?
I pulled the grill with the filler panel below, all the hood and trunk chrome, chrome between the taillights, taillights, gas tank lid with the Buick emblem. Is the speedo worth anything? The fender have rot in the lower dog legs.
According to the tag, its a 65 lesabre.
Did those 65 Buicks come with a 401 nailhead? The engine looks to be a nailhead.
Obviously not from up here in road salt land......
These gauges would be cool to integrate into a build.
Both of those would be considered "new cars" where I'm from. Good finds.
I'd use the passenger door off that chevy pu for sure. Working on one thats worse.
I wish I was closer to you! I need a few parts off of that '65 LeSabre for mine. The motor should be a 300 with a super turbine 300 trans. Not worth saving IMO
LOTS of good parts on the 3100! The spare fenders, radio delete, heater controls, etc are great flip material.
What did they want for the tailgate off the truck?
I think they get $50 for a tailgate.
What are you needing?
x2 ^^^ Just what he said.
Note that the '58-'59 Chevy truck is a 3/4 ton--a short bed 3/4 ton is a rare bird, most 3/4 tons I remember seeing had the 8' bed.
Front and rear bumpers, drivers side fender, and the hood. Pretty much all the big, expensive to ship parts lol
Radio delete in the truck,have to check ....
