Met my friend Rick Gregg last week in Winner SD to salvage a 41 Sedan that's been sitting outside for the last 60 years, maybe more - amazing the lack of rust and pitting. Enjoyed the challenge of getting it loaded since it was lacking the front axle, seems the farmer Leo English used it for some application, thankfully the rear axle is intact (note the red hoses that power the vacuum controls and canister for the two-speed) Leo parked the car for some reason back in 1952, before that it was owned by Mabel Reed ,also of Winner SD, when new. She and her husband operated the Peacock Bar back in the day...

Nice find!

I'm currentlyi n the process of installing a Columbia axle in my 1941 Continental.


I also have a 1941 Zephyr convertible project car that came from South Dakota, in about the same condition as yuour car. They don't seem to rust as badly there as they do elsewhere!
