I know many of you have many different cars so I thought I would post the two auctions I found on Auctionzip. I have no connections with either one I just thought you may enjoy looking.
Both auctions are on May 6, 2017.
One is Cresswell Auction Service in Transfer PA
The other is Baer Auction Service in Rodgers OH
The one auction is in Transfer Pa has building after building with old car crap in and piles outside too.
The auction in Rodgers has a nice WWII jeep with medical emblems.
This is one of the cars from Transfer Pa auction could someone identify it ?
Here is the jeep
Thank you Erik.
There are many other cars there that look like all you need to do is add gas...then light it. But the buildings are going to be a treasure hunt from the looks of the photos.
1935 Ford Cabriolet. I have had mine for 42 years. Rumble seat that year and if it has the correct 21-stud engine a rather rare early V8. Needs a wire wheel spare but I bet I could get one real quick if that's all it needed!
I'm rebuilding one of my Stromberg 97's for mine this weekend and is neat to see another survivor. It is a real pleasure to drive.

That Jeep is newer than the WW2 years.
Burger's right. It looks more like Korean War vintage, or maybe even a little later.
The jeep has same front fenders as my father's 66 Willys
The Jeep is a 1952-'57 M170. The passenger side mounted spare is unique to these vehicles.
The spare is mounted inside on the co-pilot's side so you could haul stretchers hanging out over the tailgate. The concurrent M38A1 had its spare mounted at the rear, right in the way of doing that.
That Ford will probably bring many times as much as the Jeep will. Early V-8's are big money toys.
Yep. M38A1, probably a 53. Gas filler and no flat fenders make it post war II. If it runs and drives, probably a 8k value.
The cabriolet is probably double that in their current condition.
This is an estate auction that had about 8 Model T's and TT's including a neat little tow truck that I posted a photo of a month or so ago. This is the rest of the estate, a ton of Americana stuff and a lot of motor vehicles stuff and vintage tract and hit and miss engine stuff.
A Fordson tractor from 1923 and a Model A Doodlebut. In Jefferson, GA. I live in Atlanta if I can help.
It would be neat to see a front/dash and a under the hood pictures on the Cabriolet. Looks like it has a radio too. Someone added an antenna through the cowl.
The antenna on mine runs to the spare tire mount & wheel which is insulated from the car and is the original antenna. You have a choice on that model. You either have a radio OR an ashtray. This one appears to be the "healthy" model.
That V8 looks complete from what I see on the exterior except for the spare wheel and maybe the bumper. Big ticket would be correct engine, original transmission and front interior leather/dash etc. Probably restored in the 1970's.

Ken, I think that's an accessory spare wheel cover, and underneath likely is the ford wire wheel.
It could be. It resembles the look of the '36. It took me quite a while to get the fifth double-cross Kelsey wire wheel years ago so I am into spokes on that car. <grin>
The tire cover and lock look right but I don't think any of that would stop me on a early V8 open car with the right drive train if I was looking for one. I could get excited about a '35 Roadster but it would have to be a lot closer than PA.
Erik is probably right, there might be a few coins exchanged on that V8.

I was wondering if it might be a '36, but those have the "rim only" wheels (like the VW) if I'm not mistaken. Decades ago I worked on a '36 Trunkback convertible sedan that had been "chopped" in 1938, had a Pines grill and fender spears and a Carson Top. Imagine doing all that to a one-year-old car! The guy that did it still owned it then too! We got it together enough to drive to his 50th anniversary party. He died not long after that; before the car was finished.
Here's under the hood and dash pics of the '35 for Ken:
Lot's of fun junk there
Thank you Roger,
All there, including a radio and heater! Definitely a RWPA!
Even my wife knows that we have one like that but she would realize if I brought it home it was not my fault. She would blame y'all because you made me bid on it. (At least that has worked before)
Neglected a little, but not near as much as that touring car we saw lately and look what a little cleaning did for it.
I'm not much on blue but I could get used to it if I tried. A "clean up and drive it" barring block damage.
A couple of years ago, someone asked me what the difference was between a 21-stud engine and a 24-stud engine in a car like this one. Easy answer. Beside counting the head bolts, about $6,000 with the original transmission. IMHO The only thing to check is that it is not a '37 block with block-off plates.
Thank you Dennis, its been fun talking about the blue Ford speedster. Thank goodness that one is too far away. Maybe we'll find out what it went for.

That is a Korean war jeep,the WW 2 jeeps had a full floating rear axle.
I just looked at the Transfer Pa auction site and realized it's only 45 miles from me! It would be nice to go but I don't think I can but I need to check my schedule. I would just like to look more then buy.
As far as the Rodgers auction with the Jeep I just copied what they have it listed as a WWII jeep. I wouldn't know one Jeep from the other if I fell over them. I just posted it here because I see many guys are into collecting war equipment.
The M170 was produced from '53 -'63 with about 6500 units built. Used at the end of the Korean War and early VietNam War. Used as ambulances and also by the Marines as light 6-man troop carriers.
