I have a safe from that my Grandfather bought from the Henry Ford Motor Plant in Wilmington California when they shut it down. For Sale
Size? Asking Price? Pics?
They didn't build Model T Fords at that place, so it has no value to this group.
Is it functional?
What vintage is the safe? Pics?
Antique safes aren't worth much regardless of where they came from. There isn't any real demand for them and few people are interested in or equipped to move a large, extremely heavy object.
There's also many of them around. I occasionally see them at estate sales and they show up on Craigslist all the time. (There are four currently listed on my local Craigslist.) The local architectural antique companies usually have a couple in stock.
Yes, I have seen many listed as free of charge as long as you move it. I went to see one once and realized it was heavy enough to kill me if I mishandled it. I turned down the offer like many before me.
About 15 years ago my wife found an ad for a free safe that was something like 4' x 4' x 6' high and asked if I could convert it into a TV cabinet for our living room...
She liked the paintings on the front...
It was a fire-proof one with about 10" thick concrete filled walls...
Thank god she would listen to reason!
This however is a real Ford safe!
and worth a bunch if you could get it out.....
.....of this estate...
Just imagine how much money that safe once held.
