I was thinking just this ..but could not have said it any better!
Wow, thank you for sharing! this is an amazing story!
Oh man. You made a damn good buddy there, man! This thread is amazing.
I'm on pins and needles waiting to see what the tailgate looks like under that cover!!
Another vote to pull the tailgate panel and reveal the tomb....great story!
Very cool tale!
Such an incredible story - congrats on your pickup purchase and thank you for sharing all of this with us!
Very cool, more pics please!
This is fantastic. Please keep it coming!
I opened this thread last week (when you started it) ... and knew right away that it was going to be another "Epic HAMB thread"!
It's a bummer about your wagon ... but if it hadn't gotten stolen, the "Contaoi '55 Ford F-100" (by Richardson, Barris, Jeffries, & vonDutch) would never have found you!
I'll be following your progress on the "Contaoi ~ Kvipt '55 F-100" ... and look forward to seeing more photos from George's archive! ... Please thank Mr. Contaoi for allowing you (& Sondre) to share them with us!
Come on! Remove the filler panel already!!!!
Subscribed, I think I know now why I like the H.A.M.B. so much, thanks.
Wish every thread was like this! -- good stuff, simply amazing.
What a great thread. Thanks for posting!
Out-standing!!! Looking forward to more...
I'm having trouble coming up with words. Simply amazing.
very Cool tale - Thanks for posting. the old jewels are still out there - pics are from one I saw in a Nor Cal shop recently
WOW! This is way cool I dont know how Ive missed it
Best thread that I've read in a while! Keep the pictures coming
me too !
WOW! So glad you reposted this...............subscribed!
I opened it then and thought it was an April fools prank, I thought it was way too cool to be true.
Congrats on the find and good on you for bringing the truck back to the way it should be and involving George in the rebuild. Take the old bloke for a drive in it when it's done and watch him grin from ear to ear.
I wish somebody would steal my car so I could find something cool like this. JK
Thank you for sharing this great story!

Wow! Never knew the thread would feature so many nice comments and views! Appreciate it folks!! My good engineer friend Roby Ballard is comming tomorrow or the day after with a fancy little camera. What that camera can do is magical. Listen up folks, I'm gonna drill an hole in the tailgate, about the size of a pen, then the tube camera can slide in there and see if the Von Dutch painting is still there, nice and untouched, or if it is a moisture trap, and it's gone in the rust. Stay tuned!
Anyways, here's today photo! Dean Jeffries' 1947 Mercury!
I've never really seen any good photos of this car before. And I've never seen that crazy face Dean painted on the hood!
For me, these photos are priceless! I just love finding more photos from the days back then I wish I was alive..
Jeffries sure had a colorful mind! That's for sure!
I can't describe how exciting it was to see these photos for the first time! They're taken right outside where I work, every day! And it looks still the same, yet not so pretty and well taken care off.
Have any of you guys seen a photo of this before?
Here's a closeup of the deck lid. Notice the guy is pulling his own guts out, and shoving something into his ear!
And this looks like a little man!
wow, these shots are amazing not just for the cars. the guys clothes styles too, chinos,loafers & loop collar shirts were the thing to wear!
Tell me about it! I just bought some cool loafers today, after seeing these photos.
Unbelievable...and you are the perfect person to have that truck. Thank you for sharing it...can't wait to see it on the road Olav
