Treasure Trove of Vintage Car Parts


Recommended Posts

Well, today, I went down to a family property that belonged to my grandfather, my grandmother is selling the property as she is 80 and wants to retire. Anyway, my grandfather, John Frimand, who died way back in 1983 had about 25-30 vintage chryslers, dodges, etc. on the property (including my dodge). So, they all had to be sold off with the exception of the '41 and my uncle's '55 Ford Truck.

And an old tractor trailer was left with many old car parts in it. Fast forward to 2010, and we open up this thing to find a hundred old vintage tires, boxes and boxes of car parts from the 1950's and before, and 10 different engines, compressors, everything you can imagine, and many many parts like bumpers, etc. for my '41, ac units for the '50s chrysler imperials, carbs, timing gears, pumps, trim, etc. and even used fan belts, oil filters, etc.! attached are some links and info about the cars and my grandfather, and I am going to get the chevy engine from the '30's tomorrow. These pics. are after we 'cleaned' it
