I got a call yesterday from the guy I do work for that David had the last of Fred's bits and pieces that were going to be scrapped or going to someone that could make use of them. I was out in the shop working so did not get the call right away, maybe 1/2 hour later. Boy was I out the door quick and David was waiting for me (Thanks again David if you see this).
Fred's cars and parts will live on and I got the leavings :-) I'll take 'em and quite happy to save some stuff from the scrapper's.

Good for you for saving it!

Mark, what was left? I took as much as my truck and trailer could hold and then mark Hogland loaded his truck. I have been unloading and sorting for 4 days. Quite a bit of nos stuff.

I have cornered the market on intakes and drive plates with springs up to 1927! :-)
1924/25 closed car cowl, less firewall but does have aluminum trim, dash, vent and floorboard risers. The windshield post covers were cut off half way up but does have the upper (I guess) recessed frame for the windshield.
1911 open runabout (?) side panels (L/R) metal (dash to under seat) to use as a pattern plus two more that go from dash to where the seat starts. Couple of top brackets that may or may not be torpedo or open runabout.
Front axles, front wheel dust seal cap and a few other odds and ends. No photos.

Mark, I would be interested in the '11 Open Runabout pieces if they are original. I like collecting original O.R. parts and artifacts for use on my project (see profile photo). Nice save!

I wasn't there -- although I should have been; I'm glad all this got saved and have to say that I am surprised they wouldn't have had the NOS stuff out for sale.

Stan. There was nos stuff for sale but it takes time to look through 100 shackles and find the 10 that are nos, there just wasn't time at the sale. There were thousands of pounds of parts in the attic, and it didn't all get down so buying the leavings was the only way really get most of it. I had no idea Fred had as much stuff as he did. It has certainly a life time collection!

David, would it be inappropriate to ask for the sales price of the dealership key holder (Don't Wait Until You Lose Your Ford Key Get a New One Now) in the Vintage Ford ad because I have one exactly like it and would like a feel for its value.

George - PM sent.

Iowa Parts had one a Mark's swap meat. Had two or three keys on each hook. The board was the original blue with Ford script. The blue was somewhat faded. They wants about $1200 for it. I have heard nice ones with out keys might bring $1000.
