I don’t go to swap meets any more so here is your chance to pick up parts without excursion/driving to Hershey Pa. or walking endlessly at Pate. These are parts I bought at Hersey/Pate years ago. I am intending to sell all of the “stuff” including car parts, engines, antique cars, etc.
Cars and Parts are in a 5,000 square foot barn, under 6,800 square feet of carport, in a large 18 wheeler trainer, and out In a couple of acres of field and trees
I have been collecting this collection since my first car ( a 1932 Light Eight Rumble Seat Packard Roadster) and
I prefer to put all this stuff in the hands of real antique car people NOT necessarily to the “Rat Rod”/”Street Rod” Types
