    No but a set of lower quarters with floor and roof patch would work.

    Too many projects. If I ever sell it the 46 chev sedan delivery will take it's place as yard art

    A crappy cell pic from like 8 years ago. A buddy told me he found something vintage and that he wasnt sure what it was. he said that it was on a farm not to far from his place. We drove out and saw this. There was nothing left and the back end was rusted off almost. We did find an intake for a flathead in the grass and also a carb and some other bits here and there. went back a few years later and it was gone.

    The Ford dealer in the town where my Dad grew up had a farm place just like that. He also took all the outdated NOS sheetmetal that was laying around the parts department and stuck it in one of the barns. Along with the dead trade ins, there were several old Ford coupes that had been made into stock cars. The guy would never sell any of it. Eventually, it all ended up getting crushed, including the NOS sheetmetal.

    It's amazing what people scrapped, if they only could of known the future gold they were sitting on.

    What's even more amazing is how the got all them cars piled up that high.

    Here is a couple i found today while expolring my local area,they were tucked away near the end of a long dirt road.the truck cabs look to be 1940's Ford and Morris,i'm unsure about the two other sedans.I will go back later in the week to see if they are for sale as there was no one there today.Sorry about the pics but it was the best i could do at the time.

    I remember growing up there was an old panel truck in the woods behind a house up the road from my parents.. Well, I bought the house just a few months ago but unfortunately the trucks gone, just a couple scraps left.. I'm certain it got scrapped.

    Looks like they might be the farm scrap pile, maybe you could get them for hauling it all away? I do that here all the time to get parts I need and end up making money off of the actual scrap and the good parts others want.

    Yeh I thought it looked like the farm scrap pile too. They used to take the body's off and engine out to make a hay trailer from what was left,you see these trailers every where around here still in use.

    Same with here, I picked up a mint 33 Plymouth farm trailer a while back, found most of the car was used around the farm, the hood was a doghouse, the one rear fender was a grain chute, some of the body was used to patch a chicken coop... I got the engine though.

    Same down here, hay trailers last forever! I picked up a '30-'31 LaSalle chassis hay wagon at a large estate auction last fall. Has a set of the Buffalo knock-off wire wheels, which eventually I'll put up for sale. The guy was a hoarder, dozens of "A"s, early 30s G.M. stuff, a 1931 Chevrolet touring! South American car, right hand drive. One heck of a sale and actually I think a lot of the stuff was picked up by car guys!!

    Man, love it, my kind of shop!! Reminds me of "Ralph's" old shop, really rustic, built out of scraps, neat stuff on the walls old calenders and advertising signage. Big; 30 x 40 feet, side walls at least 15-16 feet high. Ralph farmed some, but did repair work on the side, including big tractors and combines; all inside! I miss that place, did a lot of work there myself!!

    this 60 or 61 Falcon is sitting on some private land behind a storage facility. There is a locked privacy fence around the property.

    Earth is tilted on it's axis so when we are further from the sun (winter for us) they are closer (summer for them) and all this because earth is a sphere.
     
  25. This whole thread is depressing... and kinda mesmerizing. I know of a guy who has almost every car his immediate family has owned since the 50's. Model A's, two Dodge brothers tourings, an old dump truck, Galaxies, etc, etc, etc. And then there is that guy I went to high school with who had a Deuce five window, bone stock, rotting behind the house amoungst the pine needles. His family moved, and Ive wanted to go back and see if its there, but I just cant bring myself to.

    I'd say go for it, you never know what could happen, you might be glad you did, or you might make a trip to look at an empty yard... it's all part of the hunt.
