Shit..........Are you kiding me!!!!!!!!
Hard to believe that if someone was hot rodding it they didnt know its value
awesome score , theres probably a blown hemi under the pile to
wow! wish i could find one!!!
Good score alright Noddy.
What surprises me more is that Whangamata (home of the world famous Beach Hop)
is the Hot Rod central of New Zealand.
Maybe he dumped it there knowing you were off to the dump with your trailer ... lol
man what are the odds of that? good score
You must have been a good boy lately.
You need to bring that thing with you to So. Cal. and leave it at my house! Its my all time favorite drag racer. Been in love with Miss Anglia since I was 10 years old!
Look like perhaps you might have to look into a bigger trailer
if larger stuff gets pitched !!!
someone pissed off his wife and she had it hauled off
Holy hOlY ShIaT! What a save!
Yahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhooooooooooooooooo! Looks good on ya!
Holy fuk that is way cool!
We've been offered FREE doors, fenders, grill and hood for the project!
I almost paid $900 for one way rougher than that fifteen years ago! It had doors, but WOW! Steal!!
WOW! I guess we did get a bargain then. I didn't realise what a body like this could be worth in the USA.
It looks like its had firewall and floorboard work done to it too, maybe even mini tubed.
How does that happen? Strange.
Great save! Wonder how close it came to being crushed? Sad that the guy that dumped it didn't take the time to offer it to someone in the first place.
Well, I think you have an outstanding project on your hands. Any leads on a frame and powertrain?
Great score BEACH HOP . Another piece of history saved by a fellow Rodder.Ive personally saved a truck before it was to be shipped to a PICK A PART and put it back on the road. That truck has never let me down since . GOOD JOB DUDE!
lets see the other parts that came with it!
I bet someones mom tossed it, "you have not touched it in years, it was gettin the way."
"It's your own falt, if you would come by or call more often this would not have happened"
Yes, all that work has been done - and quite nicely too! I heard yesterday that the original front & rear ends plus steering box & column are at the tip as well... Might have to pay another visit!
Nice, i would adverstise locally and see if the dumper has any more stuff to " recycle"
Being an Anglia Gasser owner all I can say is WOW- Good for you!
It is a 49 and later by the way - note the rectangular vent, not the clam shell shape of a 48.
He called it a '48 so he could sneak into the pre '49 runs with it.
51 Leadsled ... See post 11.
Id keep digging for more parts.................
I think it was God's direction.
Looks like a disgruntled wife or girlfriend, the guys cloths were probably in another pile out there!!
Noddy, i saw a cadillac V8 for $750 on trade me last night.
Hope you find the front panels. Ive got a 42 Anglia front bumper in the shed, its not flash, but you can have it if you want it.
