The extent of parts remain to be seen.
The name must be short for "Clincher Park"
Dibs. I am an hour away
I remember the place and the story. There is at least 20 open valve blocks in that foundation pile.
What value is the junk if it is buried and rusted to heck? When I saw this post's title, I thought maybe someone had found an old dealership that closed during the Depression and I could imagine boxes and crates of unrusted parts, sitting on dusty shelves. Instead it sounds like they need to use a large electromagnet on a crane; pick up the iron and steel and haul it off to the recycler.
Some of us like to fix old parts rather than consume them.
Sounds like these were beyond fixing.
After the excitement of finding a buried treasure of old T parts wears off reality should set in.
I didn't have a ton of parts but I had a pretty good pile I needed to make a decision on whether to sell for scrap or keep them for the future. I sold most for scrap for a pretty decent price by the way.
Most of it was just to far gone to restore. You can spend time and money on trying to renew and restore items instead of finding better ones.
Old eaten up sheet metal parts I save all the brackets from are the ones that get chunked You can always find some better. Extreamly rare parts would be keepers for patterns or reference but condition would be a big factor for trying to restore them.
To each is own but I agree with my fellow Texan in Katy that some parts get to the point of being beyond redemption.
