    Boy, even the parts car looks like a builder to me, and the one having a family history seems well worth building, any chance I can convince you to move them to a dry spot, or at least get them up in the air and out of the leaves?

    Hopefully we get to them soon, the ‘50 is in the air, when we pulled it off the trailer , Fifty years ago it wedged itself against the tree and has been suspended since. Bones

    It's a '35 or '36 Tudor Humpback. I always wondered how much sheet metal was left below the mud line. It would be quite an adventure to pull it out. The 54 Ford is pretty much on top of it and I think quite a few trees have grown up around the pile since it was dumped there. I'm headed back to IL for my high school reunion in May, I may go back to the woods to check it out. It's on the property next to my Dad's: who knows, maybe the neighbor would let me have it. I think it was dumped there long before they bought the property, probably no sentimental attachment!

  7. The Plymouth was originally a 1946 to very early 1949 (first series) four door sedan.

    I've seen pictures of these cabs used on big trucks...like 4 or 5 ton or bigger. I sure don't understand why gm would build this design though when they already had a wrap around cab.

  16. That '56 Ford pickup looks very buildable. It actually looks better than some old trucks I've driven. If I had that truck, I'd be tempted to just get it mechanically sound, safe, and reliable, do very little to it cosmetically, and drive the living daylights out of it.

    Can't believe cars like this still end up dumped.

    This showed up at the farm where I rent space. Looks like it was sitting & rotting a long time. I remember seeing an old farmer still driving it in the '80s. IMG_2736.jpg
