    I spotted this 47-48 Ford convertible awhile back.. I haven't stopped and talked with the owner yet. Probably not for sale.[​IMG]

  3. He's going to probably say I'm going to restore it someday. :rolleyes:
     
  4. I'd be stopping by there real soon! If he lets that cool convertible sit outside. Just imagine what he must have stored in those buildings!;) Ron...
     
  5. Also here's one I spotted the other day. My wife said I could stop and take a picture. But that I couldn't go in and ask about it.:rolleyes: Lol It's on rt. 287 at Lovettesville Va. I think it looked in good enough shape to followed us home.;) Ron...[​IMG][​IMG]

    Very cool.57 perhaps? Looks like it could still tow a semi if it had to.5400 indeed!

  7. The Chevy big trucks of that vintage got Buick nailhead engines if I remember right, while the GMCs got Pontiac V8s.

    Austin A55 / A60 van.

    Made in the uk until about 1972.


    Had no idea they were sold in the USA.

    Thames 10cwt, 12cwt or most likely 15cwt.
    Not many left in the uk they rotted badly but very common in the 60s.

    Would love a decent one if it could be found.

    Ford Prefect 48 to 53.

    I have messed with Anglias and Populars since school days in 1968 and I know that one is way beyond help.
    Very little to salvage. Maybe front and back axle, wheels, gearbox casing and possibly steering box but it's all mostly available here in the uk.
     
  11. This just turned up in our local recovery yard. JW

    Never saw trim like on the front fender of that 51 Vicky.
     
  18. JC Whitney or Pep Boys I'm sure. Still lots of good parts on that 51 Victoria. That back glass is worth a fortune.

    My brother took these photos, Forks, WA. One before the brush was removed. I believe this is a 1949. Sully's 1939 Inrernatonal flatbed.JPG Sully's 1939 KB 7.JPG
     
  21. ^^^^^^^^^^ Headlights and parkers in the grille look pretty good. Emblem/badge too.^^^^^^^^^ BTW, someone put the badge back and straightened up the headlight.

    Looks a little like a shortened front fender spear on a 1950 Oldsmobile 88, doesn't it?

    Hey Ron,
    What year is that? Is that Dodge or Plymouth? I don't recall seeing them with a full set of hood doors.
