    Found this in a barn...and got it CHEAP....its is a complete car but its disasembled...we had to set the body back on the frame to get it on the trailer...it was just two of us at that...wheels roll, brakes work,motor turns over(it came with 3 different motors)...plus in that barn was a full trunk of lionel trains..and toy cars...he guy threw in with the deal...2 sets of wheels....the orininal vinyl top folded up with the bows inside not even rotten....its a very nice body compared to whats around here.....JAMIE[​IMG]

    Good score. There's a guy in Macon that has/had a '30 Tudor for sale. It was complete but disassembled. He was trying to get best offer. Last time I talked to him, he had a $1500 offer, but it was still in the paper Sunday.
