    I found this, didn't take long. 35K

    SOLD! Ten 1935-36 Ford 5 window coupe projects. 6 are rollers, of those 5 have titles, and 4 partial shells/carcasses. These come with a very large amount of parts including decklids, garnish mouldings, doors, grilles, fenders, gas tanks, etc. But no motors or transmissions.

    This is part of a very large estate of a friend of mine that I am helping to organize, and the executor is not interested in separating them, or selling individual parts.

    Please private message me if you are serious, and interested in setting an appointment to view them.

    Located in southern Oregon.

    THESE HAVE BEEN SOLD

    A deposit has been received. I will delete the posting once everything has been paid for in full and picked up.

    Thank you to everyone who expressed an interest.

    Wasn’t there a thread on here about this collection at one time? Somebody was working with the executor to inventory it for sale.

    Imagine that there are other stashes like that around the country. That kind of gets a guy all worked up.

    Don Babb was one of the early sheet metal repop guys. I recall a Street Rodder magazine article (mid-late 70's?) of his Classic Manufacturing, stamping out Model A body components including roadster quarters. I seem to recall he did some bit part acting in Hollywood in is earlier years. He was in Palmdale, CA. for years before moving to OR.

    Found this article on his stash. As a die hard 33/34 Ford freak, i get weak in the knees seeing a couple dozen pairs of roadster quarters and several bodies being assembled! Assume they're SAR or was he stamping them?

    A little strange,all those cars and NO engines or transmissions. :eek:
    I wonder how many were going to “get built” over the years and now we see another collection sold off after the owner passes.I really think there’s guys that just enjoy collecting with no intention of ever doing anything with them.JMO

    I hope this is "whats left" and that Don Babbs had many running driving cars to enjoy.

    Is there a HAMB'r waiting to fess up and show us what they look like in their building ? :D

  20. I bought parts from Don Babb at the Portland Swap Meet and was under the impression that he was stamping 34 Ford body parts.

    It may have been make what sells good, collect what you love. There might be a lot of 35/36 Fords getting built in the next year or so though.

    There was a stash somewhere in the Medford, Grants Pass area discussed here several years back. A poster had video of a walk through and was trying to represent the owner and do a sale for him. I don't think it was this one.

    If I remember correctly, he was stamping 33-34 roadster parts long before Steve’s did. I also seem to remember hearing that Steve’s acquired or had tried to acquire Don’s dies before pursuing his roadster project.
