Can anyone guess what it is?
Thinking '40s Pontiac or Oldsmobile...
1945 incompletus rustolius x3
This one is not hot rod or custom material. Think concours (at least try to).
I'll give a picture hint. Can you guess what this is?
302GMC got it! 1940 Packard Super 8, custom body by Rollson, Sunair Sedan.
The custom body was damaged somehow.
It barely fit on the trailer.
Here's a restored one:
Believe Packard was the very first mf'r to offer air conditioning. The AC cost about the same $$$ as a new Chevrolet ...
IF ITS NOT A HOTROD OR CUSTOM WHY ARE YOU PUTTING IT ON THE HAMB?
A early prototype version of the Mr Fusion flux capacitor? HRP
Yes, this MFr was the first to have factory-installed A/C (in the cabin, not under the hood). And this one had a sliding sunroof, too.
Guess You'll pass the grey Poupon to me too.
looks cool to me, a friend had a 41 (?) with AC, it took up half the trunk
It fits here. It is a custom bodied car. Those factory customs were the part of the work a lot of custom shops. Fleetwood Bodies were near me until GM bought them and moved them. There was another shop near me that did Kaiser-Frazier factory custom work.
You two are something else. I think all of us profess to being car lovers. I guess you two really aren’t car lovers. Quit your whining and let the rest of us car people see this
This was in a big shop in Long Beach, California. It was a family estate. There were four other cars that are more HAMB-friendly than the Packard, a vintage airplane, lots of tools, welders, machinery, doodads, junk, parts that went to hot rodders, and stuff in the house. We saved a lot of cool stuff.
Always enjoy posts like this! Knew is was some place in California, those unique back ally streets must have a lot more cars hidden away. Bob
Good stuff. Let’s see more.
This place ? Or dejavu ? Pic showed up on PreWarCar today. StearnsKnight for sale & a vintage blue plane.
1929 Model A roadster that my Dad sold for something like $50 when he went into the Navy. I remember learning how to double-clutch it, driving it before I had a license. We brought it back to our Dad.
I wonder what the blue airplane is.
The fuselage above the Model A is a 1939 Piper J-4A Cub Coupe, which was Piper's first model with side-by-side seating. At some point, it fell on the Model A.
He had restored a 1946 Erco Ercoupe. It was polished aluminum with bright yellow wings. It was sold several years ago. And the LaSalle cathedral car (hearse) that was in the hangar, too.
What's that behind the Model A?
There was stuff everywhere.
