This is nothing. You should have seen it with all the cars too. Lol. What were you saying about the gmc bed? What’s a napco? Do you think I have enough for an auction? I don’t know if a company is available out here in Hill Country. I’m 90 minutes Nw of SA and 2 hours west of Austin. I’d love be to do an auction and be done with it. Pricing all this stuff is a Pita. Lol

The transmission in the second photo of the thread may go with the Jeepster that is in a later photo but I can't be sure. Zeke

I will check that. They were in the trailer next to the Jeepster so possible. I will look if it has one installed. 

 

Thank you!

Vic, the red plastic pouch with tools that look like the letter T are telescoping gauges. Red pouch may be Starret brand. That is top of the line. Not up to date on prices anymore but sure you can find out on net. One large dealer that sells them is MSC. 

Good eye. I looked up online and yes that is what they are. Thank you.

A few more things... Anyone know the range for these aftermarket parts? 

 

I do really appreciate all the comments! I’m sure you all can imagine my brain goes into meltdown mode when I’m trying to make sense of all of this. Not to mention liquidating my dad’s garage, which just seems so wrong to me. I used to just go into the garage, look and cry. Now I can actually work in there, but I can only handle so much at one time. As time goes on, it gets a bit easier and less emotional. I have never known my father not to have a big shop with all this stuff though. It’s messy because I’ve been moving stuff around from another garage, but his garages were meticulous and everything was cleaned and in its place. 😔

My suggestion, put your bottom line (let's say $2500-$3000) for everything there is and seek someone ready to take everything and let them decide whether to market the stuff or keep some of it. Auctions usually only payoff to the Auction company. Selling one or 2 pieces at a time will take years.

The hand tools do not have a high value. You show a few tool boxes in your pictures. Keep all of the tool boxes, and fill them with a complete set of tools to put in the trunk of all your/families cars. Along with a small repair kit filled with fasteners and fittings. You have it all sitting right there, a must have with old cars.

The red Grille shell in the picture is 32 Ford.  It almost looks fiberglass.  If so,  not alot of value $20-$40 at a garage sale.  If it's steel that's a whole different game. 

5DD71F84-8FB3-43B5-BCA9-A0304E5C21C1.jpeg

This is a 32 Ford Grille Shell as well.  IF that's an original complete shell in what looks like very nice condition with no rot.  It could bring $1000.

The very least would be $500 but that would be very low.

This is a 57 Olds spinner and Standard cap as well as the 57 FOrd Caps.

In the edge of this photos there is what looks like a 3 leg puller for pulling rear brake drums on 30's-50's Mopars and I think late 40's early 50's MErcury and I think other Ford cars.  It's the one with the ends that have been beat on by a hammer.  It looks like the legs may be off it and paying under it.  It will be important to find all 3 if they aren't with it.  These are desirable.  There is always someone looking to buy one.

On the GMC trailer I would definitely try to get $1000 out of it or near that.  It looks very straight and i didn't see any real rot in it.  Often the gates are really beat or the fenders.

The wrapped up wheel moldings under the red Grille may have some value as well.  IF you could find a part number and maker on the packaging, we might be able to figure out what they are for.

Vl2; the digital calipers, bore guage set and other machining tools could be worth a lot depending on the make. Look for mititoyo, brown & sharpe, or other popular names. Also check where they were manufactured, (made in China = little value where as made in Japan = worth more). Also if you have a milling machine or metal lathe there the carbide tooling/inserts, drill bits are worth approximately $7.00 per pound as scrap metal and quite a bit more if they are still good. I had carbide drill bits that cost $100 Canadian for one. Best wishes

I don't know the market on the 3/4 inch set,  but I did a quick look at Ebay completed sales (which would involve shipping in most circumstances and many were offered with free shipping) They seem to sell in the $100 bottom end for  smaller set to 250 top end range for used sets.  I imagine shipping would be quite expensive on it for any distance.   That one looks to be in very good shape.

Seems the GMC trailer should be worth atleast 500.  Maybe as high as a 1000 if the gate is really nice and it doesn't have any rot. 

Seems pretty solid. No rust through that I can see. I small dent near top of gate.

Do you see a transmission under the Jeepster here?

Here are more pics on the ford trim.

I have done that twice with my own stuff. And way too many times at someone else's place. I gave away a 1929 Buick doodle bug that I sold a few parts off over the summer, happy to see it go. And I have been making a trip from the garage with a trash bag full each Tuesday for the house pick up.

 

For the past three years I have moved quite a bit of stuff on Ebay. I count the item selling price and shipping as the total sale. I deduct fees, shipping, and any other costs and lay it all on a spreadsheet. The cost to sell averages about 35%. And it is not anything I would call "Fun" anymore.

 

My Father was raised by his Grandfather. I got a shed full of sentiment that my Father saved from his grandfather, plus what he saved. Then I added that to the load of stuff I saved. Most of theirs is gone and mine is going. The sentiment was not as strong as I had perceived. I still have good memories of both of them and the memories are, actually, much more enjoyable than all the stuff they saved.

 

When you come right down to it, the stuff was worth it's weight in short steel. Don't miss theirs, don't miss mine.

 

Last week I threw away a few books, hard cover ones!

That's a 73 Ford Possibly newer as well without running the number,  truck wheel well molding.  I didn't but running the whole number on the web,  should yield the exact application.  If you have the whole set and they are in nice shape with no dents or damage to the annodizing, then they should be worth no less than 100.00 maybe more.  I do alot of ebay though,  so something like that usually sells well that way,  but on craigslist,  maybe not so much.  

I fortunately still have my Dad, 

but had to clean out my Grandfather's boat shop when he passed.  I only went there a couple of times and after a short time it was rough to hold back the emotion.  

The smells from the wood and smoke from the woodstove blended to make a very unique smell.

I almost teared up when I found something cleaning my own shop out a few years later to move here that was his that was sealed up.  An old jar with some screws and sawdust i think it was.  Smelt just like his shop when i opened it.  Made you want to savor it like smelling a fine food or something.  I closed it back up very quickly.  Hope it's still there when I finally move everything into place in the new shop and find it again.

@auburnseeker thanks for sharing that. I have friends that do not understand why it’s so hard to clear out my fathers garage. It’s been very emotional and I can only handle so much at once. I try to keep a business frame of mind, but at times it’s hard. One example is when I came across the deposit receipt for his ‘58 Corvette. It still is my all time favorite car and had a lot of sentimental value because my father let me drive it in parades and shows. It was something we shared a passion for when he had it. The receipt also had my name on it. I was 5 when he bought it. It was in his will I found out as an adult that I would get it should anything have happened to him when I was younger. He eluded to that when i was a teen. He sold it on my 18th birthday.
