  6. Hahha, that's cool. Looks like you found a '55 Ford out there also.

    Behind my Dad's shop today - a 58 Skyliner Retractable Parts Car.

    The frame, roof, doors and rear panel are solid. Rear quarters are rusty down low.

    He had a few more cars back there but called in a scrapper last year. He scrapped out a very clean 59 Wagon that I tried to sell for 500.00 - but not a single offer or call came in. All that is left of that wagon now is the 9" rear and the tailgate.

    That skyliner may still head to the scrapper if it does not sell soon. He said that he was going to pull the doors and top and then scrap the remains soon.

    Save it, save it! :D

    I've seen a few online, it seems a common way to do it is to weld the Edsel rear fender coves onto the Ford...

    This one uses proper looking Edsel rear fenders.

    But this one they went for Edsel wagon tail lights and trim, and I find it a bit more appealing, and it looks more like something Ford could have built.

    But to not stray too far off topic, I found these photos while looking up the Edsel ones.

    Apparently they were taken in 1971.

    Sell it to cfnutcase. If he has retractable parts on hand for it, it'll be a match made in Heaven!
    There's no way that car (or any Retractable) should be scrapped. It would be like scrapping a Nomad.

  24. So many cars in those big piles I can identify, and most of them appear to have little or no rust. Of course, in 1971, all of them were commonplace and nobody thought anything about scrapping them, since there were plenty more in the junkyards. Strange how one's opinion of the styling on various cars changes. I used to think '60 Fords were ugly, now I like them, and there are several in those piles with perfect grilles, bumpers, taillights, fenders, etc.

    Neat, looking back through this thread, and the farm with the hudsons is not quite a mile from my farm!

    Neat to see it in this thread! Ive went and looked around that yard quite a few times.

    The guy is selling quite a bit of stuff from the yard though.

    Finally got around to snapping these pics. I've been driving by these two for twenty years. These guys are neighbors, the cars are three house apart. No idea what they are. Ran when parked!! :eek:
