  3. Didn't see a lot of V8 Mainlines back in the day, most Mainlines were 6 cylinder with 3 on the tree. Could be an old cop car, as cop cars were usually Mainline trim with V8 engine.

  5. Is it just me or does the guy standing next to that Ford look like Hank Williams Jr?

    I don't remember too many V-8 Mainlines.. Wasn't that a salesman's car.. That's amazing its still there like that. Imagine how nice that area once looked when all that wood was painted and cleaned up, that's some nice looking wood work..

  11. 2 door Mainline Fords could be ordered without a back seat for salesman or others who needed the back seat area for merchandise, tools, etc.

    I'd love to see what it looks like once it's out, how much is left. What year is that Ute? Does the owner plan to try to build it, or just digging it out for fun?

    I think they started out cause the pub was shut, it’s about half way out now, I’ll dig up a pick in a while.

    Wow, a lot more left than I would have guessed! This car, pulled out, would make the most satisfying power-washing video ever.

    Daddy,

    I'd love to see some more pictures of that blue Galaxie if there are any. That looks like it could be pretty tough.

    One more from Israel (pic by Orry Geva). Somewhere near Jerusalem, cars are for sale after many years the owner sat on them but he wants dream prices I hear. The usual sad story.

  22. If they would have the hood on, there wouldn't be that all that soil to dig out.
    Wonder if the engine would turn over? Tires still holding air?:p

  23. Thats all i could get. They are behind a buisness, next to a gas station. I have a sneeking suspicion it may end up on the street this summer though.

    This car is in a Twilight Zone-ish, space-vortex, shape-shifting wrecking yard just outside of Dallas. When I told a guy that worked there that it seemed like everything changes every time I go there, he smiled and said "I know."
    Once when I was looking for 15" Chevy wheels, I had seen one in the backseat of a '53. He went with me to measure it and we walked by where I saw it 3 times and couldn't find the car. He went on to his truck and I turned around to look one more time. It was right where we walked by...

  25. Lots of good stuff left on the F1 Ford panel in the woods near Gadsden AL. Back doors if nothing else. Taillights for the F1 and the '53-'56 F-100 panel trucks are the same as '41 Ford car. My wife is from Gadsden AL.
