'61 Willys 2 WD, F-Head 4
Tom sold this '64 about 6 years ago for a cheap price to a friend who repeddled it quickly.
I'll stop back in a few days and check to see if anyone else posts
looks like the rat patrol is on duty.
That's enough to piss a guy off!
The Best Buddy Good Ol' Boy Price, I've found only works one way. If you don't expect anything, you're not disappointed as often.
No, that looks like a closed cab with the posts cut diagonally.
Way to get things back on track, Dodger
First I have to figure out how to post pics!
I posted a few images of some "rip rap" I stumbled onto a few pages ago and have been working on getting some of the
'59 Elky parts to help a friend fix a bad chop on a '60 he has. I finally made a deal with the land owner where the stuff is and a young friend and I made it down there this weekend. Enjoy!
If nothing else, I would pop off the stainless off of those cars. And the taillights off that Packard.
Check out the door trim on this '54 Oldsmobile I saw. Still hanging on and perfectly aligned with the front fender trim and yet the entire door skin has completely disintegrated. Look at the door handle just hanging off into space!
My guess is this car sat on it's side for a while and then was flipped back down, explaining the rot, but impressive that the car could get tipped on it's side and tipped back up without disturbing that trim spear, which was still in excellent condition when I took it off of the car this weekend.
What kind of tool did it take to remove that trim??
Well, the old girl surrendered way more than I expected. My buddy was very happy with the "B" pillars for his '60 and the rest is available if you need any '59 chevy tail pieces.
I have already arranged for a parts pick trip in the spring with the owner. Which one did you think is a Packard? I thought the yellow one was a mid 50's Buick and the upside down wagon was a Plymouth?
This is the Packard.
Well I'll be darned, that does appear to be a 1956 Executive now that you mention it. I guess I will have to take the trailer and a young guy back with me. Thank you for the correction!
