    Sorry. Not a Aerosedan — that’s 2-door. This is a Sportmaster Sedan. Still more stylish I think than the standard 4-door sedan. I think some refer to it as a German Helmet, or something like that.

    The one on its roof looks to be a 37 or 38 Chevy panel and would be willing to try to save it if it was much closer to home.

    Not really rotting — but this 41 Chevy has been sitting in a large tractor shed for several years. A friend took me to see it. I called the man who’s storing it. It belonged to his daughter in law’s dad, and the title is missing...

    That Farmall 560 parked next to the 41 Chevy looks a lot like the one my Grandpa had when I was growing up in East Central IL.

  7. Finally got my '38 Ford truck dug out of the dirt! It's been sinking into the ground since being parked there in 1982......

    Now moved to it's new home under cover along with my '58 ranch wagon. Still sitting but hopefully not rotting now....

    They look to be circled 'round the Confederate flagpole. Must be in southern Missouri. :cool:

  10. Congratulations! I've had my '38 pickup since I was 14 years old. I'm now 68. Don't know how I got that old. Looks like a very nice cab and doors. The grille is about as good as you're likely to find in the wild. Do you plan to build it as a big truck or use the cab on a pickup build? People either love '38='39 Ford trucks or think they're ugly. I like them and consider them one of the best looking trucks of all time.

  11. That '37 Ford one ton panel truck is a rare bird. The missing parts (mainly headlights) are the same '35-'37 and not too hard to find.

    i think the 37 panel is an old army veteran. military grill guard, perhaps a radio truck
     
  13. It will stay as a big truck. My dad bought it in '42, and I learned to drive in it.....so it has sentimental value...

    That Olds looks really complete for sitting and rotting.

  20. As stated it,s a 1937 straight 8 Olds. The straight 6 below had a different front to the straight 8 in 1937. They did have the same dashboard and gauges.

  21. I haven't been venturing very far from home lately. But I did spot this one yesterday. Looks like one of (Rusty1)'s sketches. 20200419_013037.jpeg

    Went for a drive yesterday in the burbs. Saw that there was a land for sale sign...38 acre farm right in the middle of the burbs. I wonder if the truck comes with it? Screenshot_20200602-075517.jpeg

    “Don't know how I got that old.”
    I hear you! Where did the years go? I got my first car, a 1940 Chevy, a few weeks before I turned 13. 13! I’m 65 now. Seems like it was last year. Man I wish I had kept it.

  26. I still have my first one, the '38 Ford pickup in my avatar photo. Bought it when I was 14. I'm 68 now.
