Dadeville Alabama these 2 belong to Singer/Songwriter BOB WAYNE and are supposedly bound for Sweden
We`ll take them!
It occurs to me @j hansen , that you might have a thing for those two automobiles. Am I right?
Not really,,,,but there is always a need for more American cars here in Sweden.

Best deal I spotted: Pile of '55-'56 Packard grilles and trim, including 4 (!) taillights:

It's simple, it was fuel mileage.
American cars were all 6 cylinder or v8's in that era other then some Willys, Jeeps and the Nash Metropolitan.
I have some old car magazines from the era and they mention fuel consumption as a top reason to buy a European import and they reviewed all the imports.
What's strange to me is In the 1950s the French must have imported quite a few cars to the States at least to here in southern California because I've came across them a lot over the last 30 years being involved in the old car hobby but by the early 1960s they just fade away and you really don't see any "late models" the same goes with the British cars other then the fun to drive cheap sports cars. I assume between the muscle car wars starting in the early '60s and the domestic (American) companies producing economy cars (The falcon, the Nova, American, the Lark the Valiant and the Dodge Lancer it must have really cut into European imports sales... Other then the Bug as they really seem to take off right around 1960ish until the early 1970s when the Pinto and Jap cars (and other domestics like the vega or gremlin) ate into the sub compact market with way better cars (at least for the time)
Dadeville Alabama. Was arrow straight and daily drivin, 326 car, before it rolled off of a trailer, and into a tree,16 years ago. It was drivin to this spot, and now sits, awaiting resurrection.
Dadeville Alabama. Full model A frame. The body is housed in a building on an adjacent property.
Thanks for posting prices, always curious to see that. As for the Packard parts, that was definitely a good deal, but the Packard senior series tail lights like that are still pretty common, not nearly as valuable as the Clipper style ones. For fifty bucks though, that was a good deal.
