More cars from where my 1936 Chrysler Airstream convertible came from

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Thinking a few of you here might enjoy some pictures of more of the vehicles owned by the gentlemen who sold me my 1936 Chrysler Airstream Convertible C-8, I went back to the downtown area and took pictures of the cars he has stored in his buildings over the past 60 or so years. I took some pictures of the odometers on some of the more interesting cars. I will upload all of the pictures I took today.  

 

Some of you are going to cry... the cars were moved in in number 1 condition and now... well... see for yourself.  This said, the majority of these cars are completely unmolested... something I personally would pay dearly for. Knowing every nut and bolt is original is valuable to me, although admittedly, not to everyone.

 

When I got home, I had to take a shower. So much dirt in these buildings. I was covered in dirt head to toe.

 

Enjoy.

 

Joe

That poor Cadillac looks like it got plenty of moisture from a leaky roof.  😢

Are the trunks open so the mice have easy access ? Does Wayne know about the Davis ? He has the other one.

Whatever happened to the green Davis that was being auctioned?

I agree my next choice on the list would be that Dodge pickup. I might even be a buyer if he decides to sell it.

Thanks for taking the time to take all the pics and post them here. 

 

What is the story on the weird-looking vehicle with only one front tire? Was that built in the US? I've never seen one before...

That truck would be a perfect second Dodge for you to have your son completely wear out a set of tires on.

This is the last set of images. He has two or three more cars and I will try to upload images after I take them.

 Quite frankly, I couldn’t stand the dirt, dust, and mold enough to enter another building. Assuming I have not reached my post count, I will answer questions in my next post.

LOL.  I don’t think mice could live in the environment found in these buildings.

Greg

 

Yes, I think he does.  I am trying to convince him to sell them as they sit rather than try to fix them up.  I know for sure that I would pay more for a car that has not been touched rather than one that someone else tried to get running.  Let me wash it, restore the brake system, change the oil, radiator fluid, etc.  Am I making a mistake by suggesting he sell them as is? Are they worth more untouched?

I loved it.  I will go back and take some more pictures of it inside and out.

I honestly do not know what it is.  I think my friend said it was pretty rare... but in my mind, I think it is ummmm... ugly?  LOL.

Thanks for the look.  What an odd selection of cars, other than the pre-war models and Cadillac convertibles, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to what was stored....

That thing is a 1949 Davis. 

 

Not the most attractive vehicle, although it might not look out of place on a huge golf course. Perhaps its most interesting feature is the retractable hardtop roof.
