    Twelve Dilapitated Lincolns 1925 to 1938

    Well Russ, I think that comment you referred to was mine which is fine and understandable. As much as I would rather see old American cars stay in the US, I have no issues sending my cars to every and any part of the world as long as the cars are going to a good home. Some of my cars are now in India, China and just about everywhere as long as the money was green US dollars. The fact that I sold you my 1915 Baby Grand Chevy at a very reasonable price 6 years ago and you live in Australia sums that up right? My mission is to save as many of the cars as possible, even if they sell to other parts of the world.

    Twelve Dilapitated Lincolns 1925 to 1938

    Ah I have to jump in again. Mr Harwood feels all of these Lincolns are parts cars. I have a question.. Just how many people are looking for early Lincoln parts cars? Not many. I speak from first hand experience, we stocked up on early Lincolns too. I never sold a single Lincoln part even at next to nothing. How many parts can you sell off the cars to make it worth the time and effort in chopping the cars up? There is no way that seller is going to start taking parts off these cars. Would any of us do that? No. As for sending cars to Europe and Asia, I agree, it stinks to see old cars leave the USA. However, maybe someone could answer this question for me.... If you had two buyers for a car and the overseas buyer offers thousands of dollars more than the US buyer, what option does that leave you? There are reasons why old cars are leaving the US. I think we all know the main reason which I will not say.

    If you guys really think these cars are rusted parts car junk, you don't know real rust projects. 🙄You should see the mess I am dealing with. These cars all look totally savable. I don't see any heavy rust. This guy will sell each and everyone of these cars, maybe just not all together. Most likely they will go to Europe which is where many of my cars have been going over the last few years.

    1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster Wanted

    I'll keep looking for ya because as I said, it's all about helping each other find the car of our dreams. 😊

    1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster Wanted

    This model 75 was up for sale last year for around 10k. Must have sold fast. Rough but complete. I think 10k was a deal on this car. I don't recall where it was located.
  6. Sure, enjoy. It's all there. Imagine getting her roadworthy and pulling up to your local cruise night in this? How many could still be left?

    1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster Wanted

    Agreed 100% It's also common sense. Not even 109 model 65s are left. It's unlikely that even 109 1929 Chrysler open body cars in any model are left. 109 cars? That is alot of cars to survive of a low production model after 90 years. This is not a Ford Model T you are talking about. Based on how rare this car was, even when new, it is impossible that over 100 cars still survive today. My uncle was a total Chrysler roadster and touring car nut/fan. He lived for these cars. I still have at least 10 mid 1920s to mid 1930s Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth and DeSoto models from this era. Most are rough but are all rare open models. Have an Imperial 80 side door rumble seat roadster with Locke coachwork, I think it's a 1930 but it's a pile of crap now, you can scoop it up with a shovel. Big butt long car with a rear window for rumble passengers, however, it will never see the road again. Too far gone. He called it a 3 door roadster. I'm not sure if that is the correct term or just what he used to call the car. If I lift it, it may break in half. It's a shame it sat so long. Anyways, he stocked up on every open body Mopar product he could find back in the 40s and 50s. Most people scrapped them long ago. I mean, how many guys were stocking up on these cars 65+ years ago? They were unwanted junkers. My uncle just happened to love Chrysler products. As of the 1990s, he said there were 11 known 29 75 roadsters left so I added a few because you never know what could still be hiding. I think I will take his word on that.
  8. How about this one of a kind survivor? 1936 Ford panel model van. Original condition. Can be restored or better yet, preserve just the way it is. Even still has the painting contractor's lettering on both sides of the truck from the 1950s. Been sitting since the 1960s in the same spot. I moved some cars out of the way so I can get it out now. Interested parties please contact me for photos and more information. 8k is very fair. Thank you.

    30 Buick Marquette Roadster for sale and 2 door coach parts car included.

    Marquettes are available. I can have them out and ready to be loaded before winter sets in. The roadster is a very rare bird and the 2 door coach is a sidemount car. 10k for both cars. Find two Marquettes for a lower price? Not likely.

    1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster Wanted

    While most of us are trying to help find you just the right car as that is why we are here, to help each other. However, you might have better luck looking for a needle in a haystack. There can't be more than 10 or 15 1929 75 roadsters left? Maybe 20 tops? Each time someone searches for you and a 29 model 75 does show up, it's not for you. I am surprised this many even came up. It's not like riding down to your local Chevy dealer and picking from 100 cars all alike except for color. You are looking for a car that is rarer than Hen's teeth. We all hope and wish you the best of luck finding the exact car that is just right for you, however, this could take years, if ever. Sometimes, shopping for a car is alot like dating or looking for the perfect wife. It's not easy.😊

    BILL HIRSCH PASSING

    Sure it's the right area and place to post this news. Bill Hirsch was a known name in my family growing up. We did business with him for decades. His "Miracle Paint" rust proof coating was just that, a Miracle. We used to put a coat of it on any old cars that were going to be left outdoors for a long period of time. Still have cars sitting with that paint on them. It really helped in saving a number of our cars. Bill was 90 years old so he had a good long run. I will be at the service tomorrow.

    1940 Cadillac

    The guy is correct. There was a sliding metal sunroof offered between 38 and 41 on closed Cadillac and LaSalle models. It was called the Sunshine Roof. Not many were ordered. Only about 1500 or so in those four years. I have one with that same sunroof. Anyways, the price sure seems right.

    1937 Chrysler Imperial AIRFLOW COUPE with Overdrive

    Drool.... You know how I feel about your car as we already spoke. Worth the money. Just a work of art. I wish mine looked like that.

    1977 BMW Conv't heading for scrap is anything worth pulling?

    It's very simple.... If you are not near the car, have someone who is, take a few photos and post them already. If the car in question is a Baur, you would be making a big mistake by scrapping it. This car is hot on the market, when you can locate one. Photos Please so we can stop the guessing game. I would say it's an 87 3 Series first year convertible which may also be worth saving.
