Art & Inspiration Sitting and Rotting.............picture thread

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Royalshifter, Jan 31, 2009.

  1. Yea but now the gas tank is in the cab behind the seat like its supposed to be. The cab came off my old 64 3/4 ton that I used for a wrecker. I plant to put the wrecker bed on the 4 wheel drive. Ive got some C60 fenders and 60 chrome grille. the big truck fenders will easily clear the 19.5 wheels and tires I have for it.

    Where I grew up 50 years ago, way out in the country, and the son of a 50’s hot-rodder; we had quite a few old cars around - parked out in the trees after having given up whatever organ donation they were purchased for. About 100 yards from the house, you could see the back of a 35 Ford 4-door sedan poking out of the brush, with that cute rear window nicely visible and all.

    I’m pretty ashamed to admit this, but I must have put 300 holes in that thing with my little Browning lever action.22. It was just far enough away that you could hear the bullet impact - crack, plink!

    Later, my Dad and my Uncle used our D4 Cat to smash it flat and bury it in the creek bank where the water was eroding away the edge of the field.

    I remember that car being pretty nice - had all of its fenders, doors, running boards, etc. Dad said he paid $40 for it because the tires on it were better than the ones he had at the time.

    What we could do with a time machine!

    We found/saved this one.
    A 1949 3800 LWB (DELUXE!) panel.
    It was put on a rotisserie and that is luckily as far as the last owner got.
    It's the driest one I have seen. all there, just disassembled.

    Technically it was "hanging and rotting"...
    Luckily the guy who sold it to me was a big help and put it back together.

    postOLDSinTREES.jpg Got to walk through an actual hoarder's property. The family has been there since the 1800s and most of the cars were family cars, parked when they were done with them.
    I will get organized and post some. The grove of trees grew up around them
     
  7. The red short 66 stepside is a chevy frame with a GMC cab. Some one put chevy cab sails on it. the blue white and rusty 1960 is a short fleetside. Its kinda odd. came with a V8 powerglide big back glass and no chrome or stainless. the 61 C60 behind it has a torsion bar independent front suspension. It was a 261 engine truck. the 53 GMC to the left has a 248 mill its a cut off bob truck.

  12. My neighbor bought the green short bed new at McFall Chevrolet. He wore out the 230 engine and parked it under a large oak tree. and a big limb fell on it. The blue long bed was my daily driver for two years. It had a 283 three speed. 410 rear gears. I pulled a trailer a lot with it. the cab is still viable. only the rockers are rusted and need replacing. The green long bed was also one of my daily drivers for a time. It was a 283 with a factory 319 overdrive and 430 rear gears. 60 thru 66 trucks 018.JPG 60 thru 66 trucks 020.JPG 60 thru 66 trucks 019.JPG

    No, they are long gone. Most of the pics I post here were taken some years ago.
     
  23. ...this one sat in a field near me for years,...even the roof rotted out,...gone now, I think scrappers got it a couple years back...wish I could've made a deal on it, lot's of useable stuff on it.

  25. There was a guy from Indiana who used that van to work out of he did electrical plumbing and was a Mr fix it handy man jack of all trades. He retired to southern missiouri and parked the metro on blocks for decades. and I bought it at his estate sale. complete Red diamond engine that spins free. I cleaned the carb and have the cyls soaking. Never got around to starting it up yet. I wanted to pull the oil pan and be certain its clean before starting it. Likely a good engine because the spark plugs wherent oil fouled and it had good compression the same on all the cyls. Its got shelves and pigeon holes and little metal drawers full of really old stuff. things like NOS cloth covered electrical appliance cords. fuses of every type imaginrable. new parts in boxes that I haven't a clue what they are. His heirs did not probate his estate and I did not get a title. They announced before they auctioned the vehicles that they where being sold for scrap and there wouldn't be a title or bill of sale. I still could get a bonded title if I wanted. Those apparently have a following. there is a facebook group and a international website. I also bought a 52 ford school bus and a 86 ford Pk at the sale. The 52 bus had the large flat head six engine. I sold it to a HAMB member who resides in Southern Calif.

    I saw a nice one at somernitescruise this summer, love the 4 60s ford tail lights,55ish chev lookin truck back bumper,
    awesome colors in person, low stance. This is not the actual pic from somernites but after I saw it there for the first time and did some research, I discovered it has been around a few years. I might have liked it slightly better if it had a more traditional "style" wheel and maybe without the big ice cream on top, but it was still over the top cool!:cool:

    triman62 - I found it a few years ago and posted it, too - sure enough, the HAMB knows all...several people knew right who it was in ND.
    Stuff's for sale but they want top top dollar for the Chevy stuff. Father and son farmers, I think. I see a lot of their ads on ND craigslist sites. Same buildings in the background you can tell...but Never has a price in the ad...
