Show me your treasure found - Barn farm etc.

I found a bunch of unidentified car parts in a barn. I'm not much of an old car person so if anyone can tell me what they go to I would appreciate it. There also were a bunch of brass handled levers and several fancy brass carbide lamps and an old brass Ford radiator.

What we get our self's into?  This has been entombed since the 40's .   Original paint (well it was) plenty of rain leaking in

all those years.  With in the same day got it running (perfect a quiet one too)  drives and stops. Always wanted a 33-34

I kick myself I should have bought them when they were 50 bucks in a used car lot..   I thought we bought a Ford, guess

parts are more like a Lincoln V12 or something.  Ebay prices whew!!   Paid less for the whole running car for what they

want for a grill.  During its sleep somebody stole rear fenders  and back seat those do not exist (at least right now). I mean

craigs list- rear fenders $900 and another $1900 to get them fair..??  Motto of the story "they are still out there"

 

Great score, an early flatty is cool no matter what condition.

Those parts will show up reasonably, they made millions of em.

The barn find fenders and gas tank are model T Ford. The doors look like Buick touring 1916 or so; but could be up to about 1920, there are a few different models and slight variations in this period with Buick.

Taking some back roads home with my dad last Friday I came upon this. While NOT in a barn, had to have been stored somewhere...

Sadly the for sale sign had fallen off the inside of the windshield onto the seat upside down so no contact info.

Have seen worse though.

Even Dad was smitten.

Since I have more than enough work ahead of me and it is over an hour away would have to be asked to go back for the information.

Found this in a barn a couple months back.  Drug it home and had it running the next day.  By day 3 I had replacement tires on it and was out dirt roading the Ozarks, with a whole lot of brake pumping...lol.

'52 Plymouths are my favorite car.  Good to see another one getting saved.   What happened to the car after the picture was taken?

I found this 1931 Cadillac Convertible Coupe on craigslist. The previous owner had pulled it out of an orchard in 1969. Over the next 20 + yrs, he worked on it as time, money and health allowed ( he suffered from MS). He was able to have the engine professionally rebuilt, the wood and chassis restored, and continued to collect parts until his passing in 1994. The car was then put in storage in the building shown in the pictures. (the other cars shown were owned by numerous different people) I had no particular problem getting it running. Restoration in progress.

This 1937 Ford was in storage for 50 years.  Was last driven on a street during the Kennedy administration.    I brought it back to life in 2013.

A friend of mine was in high school and needed a car to work on.  He noticed a chrome bumper sticking out of a old garage.  The old guy that just opened the door allowed him to buy it,  said it hasn't run for awhile.  He bought it for around $300. and had his dad help tow it home.  They had to uncover all the junk that was piled on the car and what did they find,  a 1967 Camaro, Convertible.  He told me that while restoring it a year later he found out it was the 1st one off the line the #1 car    Of course like you, I didn't believe him so I followed him home and there it was, and looked like it had never been driven.  #1 off the line.

Just picked up this 1957 International A120 4x4 last weekend, been sitting for awhile. Threw a battery in it today and most everything works, I need to pull the starter up and clean the contacts in the solenoid and then it'll probably start.

Dad just towed this one home. '66 C10 short/fleet, big window, with a 283, 3 speed, both Custom Group option packages, and gauges instead of warning lights. It's pretty straight and original but has some rust.
