I would love to have a 57 Buick post car.
Some rusting English tin in a nearby town. JW
'64 Pontiac convertible
'56 or '57 Chevy pickup
Early/Mid 50s GMC or Chevy COE
'56 Ford panel truck
'53 Chevy 2 door post
This one hurts! '57 Pontiac 2 door post
Another "hurty" - Looks like a Chevy sedanette but couldn't get close enough to confirm.
'56 F100 shortbox pickup
'57 Ford 2 door post
Not sure the year of this Caddy
Some random pics I've taken over the years, most of these are gone now.
As I scroll through this thread, I can't help but say... Wow... Man... Look at this ! But as the old cliche' goes...
' You can't save 'em all ! ' but one can only dream....

The Chevy pickup that Raceron posted is either a second series '55 or a '56. Can't tell which without the hood and fender emblems. Fender emblems are the same for '55 and '56, but they mount below the ridge of the fender on a '55 and above the ridge on a '56. '57 has a different grille, this truck has the '55-'56 grille.
The mounting holes on the fender are below the ridge on that truck. looks like someone removed emblems from all the cars and trucks in that yard.
This one is getting some love over the winter.
Save me scotts52 I can hear it calling you from way down here ... you got to save that one!
^^^ I'm planning on tracking down the owner. It doesn't look like it's cared too much for. No hood, open carb. I'd have to do a heart transplant for sure. ^^^
Nice find on the NAPCO!.. if you're looking for a brush guard, I can help you out
That Plymouth car/truck is wild! Hope you can save it.....you would have a true one of a kind!
...love that 46-8 Plymouth truck, always fasinated with car/truck conversions from back when,...here's a few Plymouths that are all history as of last Fall...
My dad had one of these when I was a kid. It was the only car he had with an automatic transmission.
His main daily driver was a 54 Chevy with a Corvette 327 and a stiff clutch.
One day he was taking a friend to lunch in the Plymouth. He was so used to pushing in the stiff clutch when approaching a stop sign. He stabbed the wide brake pedal instead. This caused said friend to get friendly with the dashboard.
He was upset but understood the mistake.
Then a few more stop signs later he did the same thing.
Said friends understanding was no longer available after a second encounter with the old Plymouth’s dashboard

From the rear, I initially thought this was a Hudson pickup. Boy, was I wrong!
That's exactly what my first reaction was, too.
Here's a few I saw this past weekend. I took all the back roads to the Good Guys at Charlotte N.C. I thought of rusty 1 when I spotted these.
