    It's a 49 or 50, it has the bullet in the center of the grill. I will be going back when it cools off and plants start dying and get what I can but, I don't think the DNR would like me cutting down their trees to drag a car 200 yards to the parking lot lol.

    Boy Howdy, that Dodge looks dang close to a 37 Chevy which makes me see it as a no frills/all business Gas Coupe; straight axle, Hemi and unpolished magnesium 5 spokes w/ pie crusts. Leave the paint as is thank you...
    Better grab it!

    sadly I'm afraid it'll return to the earth, been sitting there since early 70s but it was just one of many treasures that aren't for sale. He said it was a 36 but that he'd took the front off a parts car long ago n put on it, due to the original mashed up some. im curious could a 37 clip fit on a 36 & match up. The parts 37 of his is hiding behind the cobbled up 39 or 40 ish job in this pic . IMG_5463.JPG

    A friend spotted these,East Tennessee. From what I read,the older gentleman only sells every now and then.

  17. It is a 1937 Dodge coupe and a 1939 Plymouth coupe with replacement sealed beam lights.
  18. Looking at that Dodge, It's hard to believe that my family of four would drive from So. California to visit my dads parents in Missouri and then to visit my moms dad in Steamboat Springs. Sister sat in the middle and my position was on the hat shelf. As a result, I never have to work on getting a tan.

    Talked to my buddy Charlie about selling these and he said about $400.00 each. The 37 Ford might make a good stock car beginning.

    This one was sitting in this yard for a very long time and its any bodies guess where it was before that, judging by all the rust in the A pillars, upper windscreen frame and cowl vent housing. I actually saw this one six years ago when I was buying some 33 Chev parts and it seems as if almost everything I saw back then is still there, not that the owner does not sell stuff. Its more a case of everything being so overgrown that he has trouble getting the stuff out. I ran into him at a swap meet in July and asked about any 34 BB Ford trucks he might have and the opportunity to buy this 34 version came up so I jumped at it. This is similar to a 34 I owned as teenager back in the late 80s. I sold that one at the time because I needed the money to get a regular car and living at home, I was told it was one or the other, a tough choice indeed. Ever since then I have been keeping my eye out for another one. Just for the record, these particular BBs are very rare, they were actually manufactured in Geelong Australia. They are Genuine Ford and not coach built, but due to their timber frame, they are looked down in this part of the world. As far as I know Ford Australia only manufactured a few thousand commercial vehicles in 1934, subtract the utilities and open cabbed trucks and there were the closed cab trucks like this one and another version that featured roadster style doors called half door models. The owner of the yard has another two, a 157 inch wheelbase version in another yard on the other side of town and a 131 inch half door version in this yard. I am far more keen on the half door version he has in the yard, as its more complete than this one and I would not rule out getting it swapping the doors over from this one and selling this one on. Either way which ever one I settle on will be kept as a truck with an updated power plant nine inch rear and small block Ford V8 but still feature the old style Kelsey Hay style wheels. That's if I can get it engineered in that configuration, something that is getting harder and harder to do in my state. DSC00718.JPG

    This is the actual timber frame that sat in the truck before I disassembled the cab. Surprisingly, the timber frame turned out to be in better condition than the cab its self. I will keep this and get patterns for a new steel frame for the cab. DSC00719.JPG
