    I'd be asking around. At the very least there is a bunch to salvage off that car. The headliner bows alone would be worth the hassle. Front seat even if it's trashed is still worth the effort. As noted, all the side trim.

    Hood hinges are pretty hard to find for those cars. (they are different than the Chevy's)

    I'd be asking around about it.
     
  2. Nice score - you're in the right job for sure. BTW, that's a neat ship's wheel on the arbor press in the background - another yard score?

    Man that is crazy the way they rust there, makes me feel really lucky to be where I am for finding good tin.

    I've talked to the widow who owns this twice, and her daughter once. I get the classic "we're going to restore it someday". It is remarkably solid, no holes in the firewall, still has the flathead.

    Here is a pair I found above Rainier on an old back road. I was informed there were over 1,100 cars at one time.
    In these pics are a '49 Lincoln and a '51 Ford Woody wagon.

    Who is still looking for a '57 Olds dash? This one is still intact. Ran out of daylight removing parts yesterday but received a price. Can pull it next visit if worth my time doing so.

  29. That '56 Ford Victoria 4 door HT is a rare bird, rarest of all '56 Ford body styles. My mother's youngest sister had one, same two tone color combo as the one in the picture. Loved that car. Aunt Earline traded it in for a '63 Falcon.
     
  30. Wish I was in a position to rescue all of them, but especially the '51 Ford Victoria HT, and lots of good stuff left on the '38 Ford truck.
