Todays Find 1941 Oldsmobile.
Bought this today. It has been sitting for years. I am going to part it out.
Anybody need a straight 8?
What a cool looking wagon
Was helping my bro in law disassemble a barn today that he is reclaiming the lumber from and the guy has this sitting in front of his other building which is also on the verge of falling down. It's a dually with a flatty in it. My guess is 37 or 38?
looks more like a 48 to me. but i am ignorant.
Right on. I was just guessing. I'll ask if it's for sale next time I'm there if anyone is interested. I spotted the radiator and a few other things sitting around. Guy is pretty old so I doubt he's actually gonna do anything with it
Looks like a 42-47.. you can see where the weird out of place fenders sit on the 40 41 lines
Definitely not a 48 and I agree on 42-47. Hope you can get it. JW
^^^^ Cool pic, we need some words on this one !!JW
They are making this into a police car, as a sign for there restaraunt. Some people.
Todays find. Bought this 1954 Chevy ice cream truck without the V8 engine today. It was getting close when it was put outside temporary to do another project. Still sat there almost 20 years later.
327, Mustang 2 front and Jag rear. All the outer panels and doors for the box are with it.
I will be listing it for sale complete, just ice cream box box or without the box when I get it home in about a week.
A few from the junk yard, all returning to the earth.
No idea, what or where, but this would make a cool streetrod!
Looks like a WWII Canadian Chevrolet Gun Tractor- someone will want it!!!
Yup, from last fall I hadn't been there in 8 years or so. Their pretty picked out at this point.
A 28 or 29 model A and a Euro 32 Ford behind rusting in peace in Oradour sur Glane, a village razed by the nazis where they slaughtered 645 civilians on june 10 1945
Agree on the barn truck being '42-'47. The one with the jail bar grille. Ford built the same truck all of those years. '42-'44 got the 81T or 99T engines, '45-'47 got the 59A engine (yes, they made a limited number of trucks for the civilian market during the war)--there is a '44 gasoline tanker in Cartersville. GA . Of course, engines could be and often were swapped out, so the serial number is only reliable way to tell the model year of a Jailbar.
Those '41 Olds taillights would look good on just about any late '20s-early '30s coupe or roadster.
Been there for two years that I know of, $500. car for $3500.00 Been watchin Barrett Jackson I recon.
^^^"I know what I got, blah, blah blah..." Actually, around my parts, that would be considered a pretty good price for a car in that condition; a bargain if it is running.
The dark spots on the hood are rust holes. they match the floors and the lower rear body pretty well.
^ That 1st gen 'Vette needs an intervention!
And a straight axle, injected 301, Halibrands, Moon tank and heavy, heavy flake.
