Perhaps period authentic ??? I find it suffers from a bad case of aesthetic appeal.
Strange aint the word for it!!
It looks like it may actually be legit, despite the headline description.
That's what Marks parents said when he was born!..."I guess we have another Strange one here!"
(Just joking with you Mark Strange)
They should have learned better when I was born, but they still went ahead and had six more kids after me.
i think it's been "re-habulated" a few times, maybe the wheels were re-done in its using life , but they sure aren't from 1925. The front fenders look to me like the "hot rod" fenders offered by J.C. Whitney back in the 60's
A '26 style under-the-hood coil box indicates some re-hashing. Interesting the pop-riveted "VIN number" tag - possibly something demanded by a DMV someplace ?
It wouldn't look quite so goofy with the regular factory artillery wheels and right sized tires . . .
I have seen a couple of commercial bodies by this maker, but they never were on a chassis. Neat enamelled emblem on the radiator shell by the body company !
That's because they were trying to get it right! They heard practice makes perfect.
That vehicle was discussed a month or two ago.
If I can find the thread, I will post it.
i like it!!!!!!!!!!!! charley
I like the tag that states : " Vehicle Identification Number Number".
Looks like mobile home tires to me.
I don't like to comment on someone's car or truck for sale but if anyone is seriously looking to buy this I think you need to do your homework first. Perhaps someone in Detroit could check the newspaper archives to see if they have any old pictures of these trucks delivering newspapers.
If you bring up the pictures and use the zoom feature all the trim is screwed on with large screws, most trim of the period was nailed on. Above the windshield isn't painted but shows overspray from the sides, and the tires say trailer tire on the side. The front fenders look like boat trailer fenders.
Please forgive me but this truck doesn't look period correct.
Wooden disc rims???? Dave
Those are boat trailer tires!
I would say the body is correct for the story but somebody really made a mess of it.It needs factory fenders and running boards on it and some good T wheels.
I saw this on the page,I must say,they helped the looks of this Sable alot!
