I've heard Pine isn't recommended for re-wooding a body!

Obviously from one of the Ford Branch Plants. Does the Trunk come with it? Needle bearing thrust washers. Extra leaves in the spring. Look what some sap did to it.


Don't get me started.

We gave to my son. He is going to fix it up. They gave to him back in the 50's, but he is going to fix it up. How many times have we all heard that?

I've always pined for such a car.

I enjoy Dennis and his humor. We need a little from time to time.

I think the car could be spruced up a little. I hope it gets restored and not couped up in a garage.

Ran when parked. Wood kit included, will need some fitting.
And no, I can't top Richard's post, good 'uns!

A bit of a funny story - there was a farm I knew of for years as a kid that had about 20 Ford vehicles from the T era up to about 1935 or so in the field nearest the road. From what I know everyone who asked was chased off. Then, while I was in college, I met the daughter of the owner thru someone I would car-pool with every so often. Once I figured out where she lived I tried to date her just to get a look-round there. She was into Horses and needed a village idiot (me) to help with fence posts one summer day, and I was right there. I did get a look around, but everything was that bad off or worse. I did pull the entire front bumper & brackets for a 26 out of a scrap heap (my pay for a day's labor) but all in all the fantasy of what could be there was better than the reality of what was there.

The last time I drove by the farm was about 10 years ago, which was 20 years after I'd lost track of the gal I dated, and the junk was still there continuing it's decent into the field.

It's just been lumbering around for the past 40 years or so.

here's a Divco Milk Truck I found at a junkyard one day. Someone took out the crates a long time ago and a they became part of the tree.

WOOD you guys stop with the puns already!

Engine is being slowly rebuilt. Only 1 new RING a year.

Now I'm doing it.

Okay. I will go out on a limb here. I am not the only one around here that appreciates puns?
Thanks all! I needed that.

I sincerely hope the hot rodders do not get their hands on this as they are more than likely to chop it :-) :-)

I'd sure like to root around that pile of parts.

I am experienced in the "tree" removal in those situations.750 hum,i would maby go 350 - 400 if it was local and I had to remove the tree as it would require hauling my tractor and chainsaw and probably some help to get it.
This photo would be a good part of the story with the car when finished.


hehe,this is at New Finish being sandblasted now,motor and differential are fixed already.
