Attached are some photos from a recent auction of vintage Ford testing equipment (circa 1940s/50s). They are gorgeous looking pieces of equipment and have been cosmetically restored but sadly no longer operate so they will look good in someone's garage but won't used to keep any vintage Ford/Lincoln/Mercs on the road. I understand that the three pieces of equipment sold for about $2500.00 each.

I am curious does anyone on this board have and/or use this equipment.

If owned this equipment I wouldn't mind putting it my living room instead of the basement. I could use them for serving cocktails. Just a fantasy. I am sure my wife would never agree to that idea.

It amazes me what craftsmanship American products used to have.
