    Found this car in a ditch after the California fires cleared brush. Thinking 47 Mercury?

  6. DIG THAT THING OUT NOW! It is a very rare Michilenander Four Door.o_O Only other one in existence is in a museum in Greece last time I saw it.;) Worth more money than you would ever dream of even with all of the bullet holes.:eek: It is repairable and you need you get it before someone else does!:confused:
     
  7. Those holes are in fact options from the Michilenander factory for cooling purposes. This particular car, lost for decades, used a prototype air-cooled V-12 Lycoming engine and was used by border patrol agents in Arizona before becoming a So-Cal project car. I have a picture around here someplace...

    The border patrol ran them on wood gas,it had a grape seed oil injection system to extend uppercylinder life..you could tell by the distinctive Yucaipa wood carrier pressed into the roof crown.

    I think your picture is a Special Deluxe, not a Master Deluxe. Look at the shiny trim around the windows...that's one of the few ways to tell which model it is.

    Yea That's a 41 Cheby for sure. Remember painting one, all was fine except for the trunk. No matter what we did, even removing all the paint and priming several times it would curl up all over. Never did get it done. Iceman

    It appears the pos 41 Chevy is the "new" f**king Dodge.
    Old Fords have also been identified as F**king Old Rotten Dodges.
    Must mean that when the Dodges get old and wore out, they become other makes. :oops:
