    Well, I know some people don't like these sorts of questions. But, this car was found around my hometown...not exactly sure what year it is or make but my guess was 33-34 Ford? I'm not to familiar with those years as i am with older and newer years. So could some well knowledgeable help me clarify what i have found and what it might be worth?

    Looks like 33-34 Ford sedan, worth what ever you have to pay for it, kind of hard to price a car by 1 pic. I would say get it for sure you probably wont loose money on it.

  6. For sure not a 33-34 Ford as it doesn't have suicide doors.

    I believe the "X" stamped in the cowl side would make it a '36.

    Well thanks a lot so far! right behind it is a 30-31 tudor sedan that is upside down and a lil in the dirt but not much so I'm very sure it is savable. Should I take the time to pull this one out also? fix it or make a buck? I'm sure the owner will let me have them so win,win situation?

    Well,
    it is for sure a 35 or 36 sedan, as there are very little diffrences between the two.....It looks like a 36 too me.....As far as what it is worth.....Not much! maybe a couple hundred bucks at best...as you can still find these in pretty good shape very reasonable.......Looks like it is best suited to be a donor body......I would keep looking if I were you

    If you end up bringing the Ford home This might be interesting to you..

    I found this chassis on a farm that was purchased with barns full of leftover car parts. I didn't buy it but I would be happy to forward you he contact informaton for the chassis.

    Unless the price is WAYYY Outa Line, I can't believe One wouldnt already have it the House !

    There is always a market for it or parts of it.

    Every Dollar you make off it is FREE Money for your current Project.

    If you don't take with the Other body, The owner who is Now in CLEANING MODE may just take it the Crusher.

    Then there will be ANOTHER thread on "HOW COULD YOU CRUSH THIS VINTAGE TIN"

    Get it & turn It ...

    I agree. Haul them home if they're free or real cheap.
    They may be too rough to save, but some parts may help out others with their projects.
     
  21. Well I'm not familiar with the mid 30s cowls. I should be but I'm not.
    I know its not a 35 or a '38. Cowl doesn't look like a 35 and its a flat back so it is not a '38, '38s had a bustle. I'm going with '36 or '37.


    Someone that is way mor familiar with the cowl will give you a better naswer.

    I can see both sides but the side that I see is pretty rough. Ther is not a lot more than a starting place there. but it is savable if you are willing to work at it.

    No title field car right? I wouldn't give more than 500 for it and if I could get it between 200-300 I would be comfortable with it. But you must remember I am not a high roller, or as some would say I'm so tight I squeek.

    Grab everything you can. Even if whatever is too far gone there will be pieces that someone can use on their project.

    Car is '35 or '36, as others have mentioned.

    1937 had steel roofs ('36 last year for canvas insert) and two piece windshield.

    Plenty of '35 Fords have the "X" in the cowl side, so that doesn't make this one a 36.

    I've owned a '36 2 dr sedan with a "bustle" back (trunk), so the fact that it's flat just means it's a flatback sedan.

    Now why should everybody have to tell ya to haul the stuff home ?
    One more time ...... Haul the stuff home . Does it really matter what years they are .
     
  24. I didn't pay attention to the roof. DOH.

    I was using the flat back to rule out '38. I don't recall seeing a flat backed '38. This is not to say that they didn't make one just that I have never seen one.

    Anyway I didn't take the hole in the roof into consideration so I stand corrected.

  30. If the subrails on the upside down A body are solid, bring it home, a full repop set is like $500 and you have to put it together.

    The 35-36 body? It's worth you bringing it home. It would make a good stock car body if nothing else. I don't know where you can buy the same thing for the $250 some of these guys are saying -
