Constantine, You may be correct. Sounds like a very good deal, and I also think it has a ruckstell (or warford)...

You will always find good deals where quality transport is hard to find.

The Pacific Northwest is a good area to buy any type of vehicle - getting a quality transport is a challenge.

Likewise so is Wisconsin & Minnesota.

Not much demand to haul cars into that area - you have to be able to drop off before you can pick up.

At least from here I can go to WI and MN and get 'em! Already done that twice!! Oregon, that's a different story. If not for the mountains, I'd try it though.

Tim,

That is what I tell folks that call me.

Just got a call this morning from a guy wanting a haul from WI to PA.

Few folks want to pay unloaded miles to drive empty to go get a vehicle ....

I saw that ad. I was going to write them and ask if they could take and post a photo of photos why they couldn't take real photos and post them.:-)

I just got back from looking at the car with two other local HCCA members. It's a numbers-matching '27 that hasn't been run in years. It's buried in a garage full of stuff, which explains the lack of good photos. (Yes, it has a Ruckstell.) The engine turns free, but they weren't prepared to start it. It has a sway-back NH with an interesting linkage. It's all black, with a poorly done kit interior. The top and headliner though, were relatively new and done very well. The body was really straight with just a couple of small wrinkles in the side bead of the right front fender.

The gotcha was the wheels - bad spokes all the way around. It looks as though they were painted at one point, the paint stripped, but the wood not re-sealed. There are splits everywhere.

That said, it would still be good to keep it out of the hands of the hot-rodders. I asked the owner to give me a call when he had it out and running.

- Bruce
