  7. Man, I would love to spend the weekend in there! Too bad he has to stack them, thats pretty rough treatment. But it does look like he sells a lot of parts judging by what is missing on most of them.

    Years ago my friends had a nice blue D300 pickup, it was a way stouter truck than the 3/4 ton Dodges were, and a good bit different sheetmetalwise, as I recall.

    Ya. Nice guys. No BS, let me wander around, for a couple hours. Walked it twice, to take it all in.

    The fact that the '60 Plymouth above has intact rockers and rear wheel arches (at least, sure looks so) is pretty amazing, must be a desert car. A lot of very valuable sheetmetal on that car, I'd love to have that to cut up.

    I had heard that Ford of Canada kept using flathead V8's into 1954 but I thought it was only in pickup trucks, this is the first time I've seen one in a '54 car, that's very interesting. Does this car still have the older kingpin style front suspension as well? I wonder. Also never saw a factory aluminum intake on an (EDIT) late flathead. I'd have to grab that as a wall trophy if I was able.

    not sure about all of them, but many canadian flatheads had an aluminum intake from the factory
