By the way I didn't crush these, Wetumpka city, and pull a part did, We have an abandoned vehicle law, and any unregistered vehicle is veiwed as scrap metal, and removed.(at the owners expense!)
Sorry man, I just got this comp. for christmas, this is my first personal comp., and I'm Lucky I've figured out how to even post these. I hope the last few are better.
Guys, remember that this is the HAMB and your postings should be within Ryan's guidelines. That means '65 and earlier, no VW's, muscle cars or the like.
A friend (British car guy) had heard a rumor about some cars in the basement of a defunct car dealership in central Ohio, so we checked it out yesterday. The place was pitch dark in places, with lots of debris on the floor. The blue car is a 1965 Sunbeam Minx. The 1956 Imperial had been there a long time and was not for sale. Literally sitting and rotting.

tommyd, is that The American Way Top Fueler?
this thread still brings a tear to my eye!
Outstanding foe toes, BH...thanks for posting...
If this has been posted already just keep moving.
Is this a cheata? It's sweet whatever it is!
I think so. It popped up on THAT fb site.
Ive always been a fan of the 55 & 56 fords. seeing the one pictured prompts me to query. To my eye the rear side glass and straight top on the quarters is more poroprtioned on a ford 2 dr post than a chevy. The chevy rear glass looks too big like a transplant from a 54. and that V dip on the tri 5 chev messes up the lines. So im thinking of converting my 56 more door to a two door. Cutting two four door front doors in two and building a slightly longer door than a stock two door sedan door. and using the rear doors of a station to fill the gap between the relocated B pillar and the quarters. That would elemenate that V dip. Is this viable?
That's a lot of work, but I've seen it done before.
Hopped up flatty in a old boat out sitting in a guy's personal junkyard. The story is that a high school shop teacher had his students build it as a school project. It has been sitting out in the elements uncovered for at least 30 years. Has sharp heads and intake with dual 97's.
the chev Pk might be a first series 55? it has the flat top bed sides. if its a open driveline it a 55 rather than a 54.
