    What are your plans? Are you going to save it from itself?

    will get more pics up next weekend when i get it back to the house to look it over better...
    i didn't open the hood but it looks like some kind of ford motor not sure on size yet
    that trailer is stuck in the ground and tires flat, it sat there since 80's i would presume both the car and trailer hahaha...

    too many projects, this one may just go up for sale to fund my 46 dodge truck

    as for the whole story of it, it will probably go untold the builder/owner of it passed away 6 mos. ago. I'm getting the car off his brother that does not know much about it...

    anyone know what years ford did the spring forward front axle?

    this one is not set right at the rear of the wishbone, the front bends are to far in for the spring shackles to line up straight

    Spring in front of the axle started in 35 and ran through 48.
